The top on my 2005 ssr won't cycle

Asked by Mar 07, 2015 at 02:19 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet SSR 2 Dr LS Convertible Standard Cab SB

Question type: General

I have a 2005 chevy ssr and when i try to let my top down i get a message that says the cargo cover is ajar. Why would i get this message if the cargo cover is closed and latched.

Most likely it is a bad latch light switch, they are located as part of the latch assembly and should have wires leading to them.

Thanks tennisshoes for your suggestion on what might be causing ,my problem with my ssr's top not working. Do you know how maybe i can test the latch light switch to see if it's working right or not. i've got to find it first though but i'll just look for something that has wires running to it that looks like it's part of the latch assembly. I've got a place to start looking anyway, again thanks a lot.


Yes they are part of the latch assembly, once you get to the wiring you can unplug then and use an ohm meter to find out if they are open when the latches are closed.
