You too Where exactly is the switch? I tore part of my seat trying to get into the trunk. During the process of lowering the retractable top,I reached into the trunk while standing next to the car to free an object cardboard box that I feared would encumber the operation or damage the top. There was a post just recently about someone who stopped his roof mid cycle to clean the debris out of the trunk and one of the micro switches on the passenger side for the tonneau worm gears did not close properly, causing his malfunction. It is for dealer techs and might not help you since you don't have the dealer diagnostic computer to see trouble codes from the top system. Too much work, and I'm not very experienced with it.
What if this common problem happens when you are in a remote location with no cell phone service? Because the tonneau cover won't retract at all, it will just hit the rear windshield area even if I forced the trunk lid down by tricking the switch. Reverse the process to close it. Replacement brand parts are the most affordable solution for all of your replacement needs! The top did finally stop and I was able to pry myself free. I am no longer getting any top malfunction faults, however when i try to open the top, the windows roll all the way down as expected, and nothing else happens. Tighten the bolts and whala! I tried running a ground and power wire from an open and unused 12v fuse under the hood.
The top will completely go into trunk. Too much work, and I'm not very experienced with it. Oh and I did this in the up cycle so I could just release the button to get it to stop incase things started moving out of sequence. All of our Lift Supports are guaranteed to fit if you use enter your Chrysler Sebring into your Year Make Model selector. It appears the arms for the latches can be adjusted. That is the next operation in the cycle after the top locks into the windshield header.
I am going to cycle mine and watch the switches to see if I can figure out how they work. And most likely pay hundreds to get it fix by some1. They said the part breaks on several current Chrysler models all the time; a web search confirms it. First off, Chrysler has an odd grounding system on this car. Ok, here is my update. There is a switch at the front and at the back ends of the worm gear the piece of threaded rod that spins and moves the tonneau back and forth on the passenger side of the deck lid.
I have since fixed the cable and motor. If I'm correct, you'll need to lower the tank some to … get to the filter. The other way is to call a locksmith. Now I just need to open the trunk and reconnect everything else. So a while back my convertible top got stuck in the up position. The problem itself is rather simply to understand but can have very dangerous ramifications. Cycling the system might work as well, but I am sure you have already tried that.
The dealer claims I was at fault,and it was not latched properly. I'm pretty sure it latched onto the windshield properly though, because I hear the latch closing after the roof hits the windshield header. I would estimate the downward force to be in excess of several hundred pounds per square inch since one of the guide pins created a 2 cm impression in my back about 2 inches from my spine.

I checked to make sure it was latched properly. You can see where the latch scraped. Springs are no longer available because of changes Chrysler has made so I have to pay to have springs rewelded. I think perhaps your suggestion is correct based on what I have read about other cars with this same problem.
Replace the latch plate and bolts as described above. A cable had broken apart that goes in the motor that raises the trunk lid up and down. It is actually under where the lower hose hooks on. When I try to open the trunk via the trunk release button inside the console box, I hear that clicking sound you mention - but do not hear it when I try to open trunk with remote trunk opener. Now the pump doesnt run at all but i still dont get any malfunction alert. I have heard that one cause is a faulty airbag fuse - maybe try replacing it. The top has it's own computer.
You can try to close the latch on the trunk with a screwdriver to get it to work. Most Chrysler Sebrings have access to the trunk through the back seat. She accidentally depressed the car lock while closing the door. Suppose that it is not the latches at all but something connected to the latches that made them both fail.
