Default Convertible top working on and off

Hello! I am new to the forum, I bought a 2004 SC 430, Black Onyx, Saddle interior. I have been looking at it for years and I found it at a reasonable price. It has been working like a charm until recently, the convertible top works fine every now and then...the main problem is the cover behind the back seat, it lifts whenever, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not...it is becoming frustrating.

Some days the top goes up and down without an issue, other days the top goes up but the cover does not....sometimes the top goes up fine and when is time to close the trunk opens but the cover does not want to lift so the top does not comes up!!!!!

Any suggestions? I read many,many reviews before I decided to buy the car and now that I am driving the car that I wanted for so long I ended up with one that has a malfunction...

That's a good start...That would be an easy task to get them clean, I just need to know the location, Can someone please tell me the location of the sensors?

In your trunk.........where the cargo shade gets held in place. There are sensors to make sure the shade is indeed in place. Try cleaning them and making sure you have good contact with your shade. Report back.

Help us help you!

What does "cover behind the back seat" mean?

What is the red light on the button doing when it is not working -- on solid, not on at all, blinking?
