Top wont come back up

Hello everyone,

My 5th 911 (87 & 89 Targa's, 89 Turbo, 00 996) 99 vert. Recently, the last two times I drove the car my top went down fine and then when arrived at my work the top would not go back up. Nothing at all just the blinking vert light. Car was in park, e-brake engaged, tried rocker and key. I went into work, at lunch went out and it worked fine. Thought it was a one time thing. So now it happened again...same sequence, waiting around 30 minutes and then it goes up like normal. No noises, flaps, clamshell etc, working like normal. Any ideas? Thanks to reply.

Happy Sunday to all!!!

Well, intermittent issues can be tough to trace unless they throw a fault code.

You will need the Durametric software, a Porsche PST2, or PIWIS testers to read convertible top fault codes.

If there are faults then we go what faults come up. If there are no faults then you start looking for loose connections on microswitches, etc. So... a complete failure is easier to troubleshoot than an intermittent one.
