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.

1 Answer


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.
