2008 Mitsubishi spyder convertible top reset
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.
thanks for the resolution
Yes yes, that did the trick for me also on my 2008 Spyder! Thanks for the tip!
I posted your answer on another site for a chick. Thanks for the help, hope it works for her.
Dang it was the same site different questions i guess. sorry not on this site much.
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.
I have a 2008 eclipse spyder and I can't get the top to open. I tried what you said in your post but it didn't work. when I hit the close button I got 3 beeping sound. is there something else I can try
