2002 996 top going down by itself

Recommended Posts

I just had a lower mileage engine installed. Everything seems to be great except the mechanic said when he got in to crank it one the top lowered without him pushing the dash button. One time, couldn't get it to do it again, and I got it down and back up as normal. Well today I heard a noise in the garage with the key out the top completely lowered itself. I put it back up. Any ideas? Thanks

Never heard if the other one got repaired.

There are only two ways to activate the top. Rocker switch on dash and door key. I wonder if water or? in the door switch would activate the top.

From the 2003 owners manual:

"With the vehicle key:

~ Unlock vehicle with the remote control.

~ Hold the vehicle key in the unlocking position

in the door lock until the convertible top has

reached its final position or until the door windows

are in the desired position.

Re-lock the vehicle if necessary."
