Issue with Convertible top on 2007 Eclipse Spyder


Asked by Aug 19, 2014 at 08:24 AM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After closing the top successfully, once car is put into gear, the light flashes and warning sound is heard, indicating the top is not up all the way.  I cant get it to turn off.  Any ideas, am I doing something wrong?

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.
