Asked by Aug 10, 2014 at 02:53 PM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I did the "reset" turn off and on..etc. that finally got the motors to work and the windows to go down when trying to open top, but it's not grabbing somewhere to open is there a way to fix this...let me say easy way my father used to fix everything mechanically for me but he just passed away so I am trying to do this on my own. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Have you checked the switch in the trunk?

I'll check but from what I've heard is there is no switch behind the 2008

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 Spyder. Tried the in off thing, no luck. I have a switch in the trunk and made sure everything is pushed in tight. Top still will not go up. Do I need to do something with the switch? I don't see a button... Please help. Thank you
