If your convertible roof won't open or close. Make sure the park brake is on and the P light is displayed (lit) on the dash. If the park brake is on but there is no dash light - put your foot on the brake - press the button on the park brake (hold it in) and lift and lower the park brake as many times as required until you see the P light displayed on the dash. Release the button on the park brake when you see the light. This should be able to get you out of trouble - if the park brake microswitch is playing up.  Cheers King Kappa

I'll try posting here first.


My issue is that the soft top will suddenly not open. The electrics is fine, the motor spins, but the passenger side drive cable twitches when I try lowering it but the roof won't move. When I unplug this cable the other side is moving the roof cover without issues.


I even managed to get it moving by rising driver side slightly, then the passenger side would move and after I alligned them back, the roof would open. Only once, though, it would not open again after closing.


Is this a symptom of a transmission issue?
