Asked by moorecreative Mar 20, 2013 at 01:13 PM about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had to replace the battery.  Now the top won't go down.  I changed the fuses.  The windows work up and down.  I hear no beep when I release the latches, and I do not hear the motor to start putting the top down at all.  Any suggestions.  Also, it is a 2008 so there is no manual switch in the trunk.

Yes, I read all of those too! I just don't have a switch in the trunk to make this problem go away. I was hoping someone who had this exact problem would tell me how they fixed it or got it fixed.

This worked: turned ignition key to ON position (not all the way to start engine, just to where radio can be turned on). Turned back off. Ignition back to On. Raised the windows. Turned ignition back to off. Turned key all the way to ignition and started engine. Pushed the Close button and the top functioned as expected. Saved a trip to the shop.
