Hi all

I have a 2000 996 cab. The top function is intermitant when using the switch, but works fine using the key in the door. I am thinking I have a faulty intermitant switch, or the ground at the park brake is intermitant.

When pressing the switch, the top either works or it does not work, it does not fail during operation. When the top does not function using the switch, the dash light still illuminates and there is a slow 'clicking' sound, so it seems the control module is getting power.

Does anyone know if, when using the key in door for cab top function, the ground is bypassed? If so, perhaps the problem is with the ground, and not the switch.

Thank you to anyone with thoughts on this.

Cheers Rick

PS I have topped the hydraulic fluid level

I also have a 2000 Cab. I didn't know that the key could raise or lower the roof. Super pleased to learn that. Made my day

You might try swapping in one of the other switches on your panel to see if that works (only because it's easy) before you spring for a new switch or begin searching though the wiring loom and associated connections.
