Asked by Jul 08, 2013 at 11:41 PM about the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Touring Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We were putting the top up on our 2008 Sebring Convertible.  The car was in park and I
put it in gear in the middle of the top going up.  THe top went all the way up, but the trunk
and the cover that goes over the top when down will not go back into place.  The cover is
now pushing against the window instead of going back into the trunk and the trunk is
stuck opened.

My mechanic is disconnecting the battery to reset the computer. What if that doesn't work? He didn't see to sure that it would work...

the dealer can use the starscan scanner to close the truck. Ive had to do this before.

What ever happened with your convertible top? Did you need to replace any parts?

I am having the same problem. The top will go up and down, however the trunk lid will not close after it does. What did anyone do to solve the problem? Naturaly, the dealer wants me to spend 1,200 dollars to replace the cover table motor.

Go to the each side there is a locking pin. You will find it by wiggling the trunk it is the only area holding the trunk. You must pull both pins to unlock . Takes some wiggle. Then the trunk should alow you to open the normal way. You must push the pins back up so it re locks or it won't close. I currently don't have pictures but it's simply a locking pin on both sides.
