2008 Mitsubishi spyder convertible top reset

60

Asked by May 21, 2013 at 09:23 AM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The top was down when auto part store replaced the battery on my 2008 Spyder GS.  
Now the top doesn't close.  The open and close buttons and lights work as usual and the
fuse is intact.  How can I reset the mechanism?

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.

I have a 2007 Eclipse GT convertible and the battery went dead while in the garage over the winter. I charged the battery but could not get the top to go back up. I found your solution and tried it today, it WORKED, thank you so much, the dealer wanted $135 just to look at it.
