In the process of working on my 04' Targa I must have inadvertently left Targa hatch open. In turn after a week or so the battery ran down. When I tried to start it the engine barely turned over & everything began clicking. The hatch would not close. Each time it attempted to close it poped back up. After charging for a bit it closed fully. I disconnected the battery several times in an attempt to clear the computer sequence. Now the release switch does not "click" to release the hatch but if I disconnect the battery the hatch will release itself. If I attempt to close the hatch it will pop back open but eventually will close fully. Obviously it is out of sequence but I need some help to reset /repair this. Thanks

Loren As always thanks for the quick response but in this case the battery in new so I need to go the next step.

Success!! As an update I found that the hatch was out of sequence presumably due to the dead battery. It thought it was open when it should have been closed & vice versa. By disconnecting the negative lead on the battery (after recharging) the hatch would either partially open or partially close. Pressing & holding the hatch release would engage the motor to fully close the hatch. Then disconnecting the battery lead would release the hatch. Thru trial & error of closing the hatch manually, pressing the switch & disconnecting the battery I eventually after 10 minutes or so got it in the correct sequence. The easy way would have been to take it to the dealer who has the diagnostic tool as Loren suggested but I did not want the aggravation not to mention the expense.
