Convertible top problems...

Hey guys,

Posting this for a neighbor of mine. His top failed two days ago, I went over to look at it for him and found both relays for the pump corroded at the points. I replaced the relays telling him there has got to be a reason why the relays blew. We replaced them and the top worked a good 6 times then failed again. I chocked it up to being a failed pump/motor. We replaced that this morning.

It worked 4 times then failed again. I just checked the new relays and they again, are blown. Any ideas guys? I did a search and didn't find to much. Alldata has no TSB's related to it either.

My top failed to open after installing suspension but malek@MRFengineering solved the issue via re-setting the computer that functions the hardtop. Shoot him a PM

I assume you mean going in through Ista/P and resetting it that way? Did not think of that. I will try that today and report back.
