Why won't my convertible top work automatically?

Asked by Jun 03, 2015 at 04:32 PM about the 2006 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The fuse is not blown, I have already checked and I don't believe the motor is broken. I
can still put the top down manually, but it would be really convenient if my automatic top
would do it's job haha.

Best thing to do is have the convertible top scanned for fault codes. You need to see the dealer or a VW specialty shop. Sometimes the lock handle or a micros witch don't work properly and the system shuts down so it doesn't damage itself.
