My Convert won't convert

Well it has happened three times. Just got my 2007 Eos (new 450 miles) about a month ago. There have been three perfect spring weekends in Memphis, TN since then and my convertible top has failed to work on all three. It fixed it self somehow the first time, but I went back to the dealer the following rainy Monday and they could find nothing wrong. It did it once more about two weeks ago and then worked perfectly when I tried it later in the day.

This weekend with sunny skies and temps in the 70's it will not go through the cycle. It gets to the point where the rear deck opens, goes down, sun roof opens, slides back, then the front "posts" do not disengage to complete the process. I get a message "system error". I had a Chrysler Sebring Covert prior to this no problem ever. I love my Eos Turbo2.0 , biege with black leather--so much fun to drive. How embarassing when you cannot get your fancy and expensive car to work.

Has anyone had a similiar problem? I need help. I will be going back to dealer Monday, but very unhappy that I cannot enjoy my car.

Had this problem as well. The dealer seemed aware of this issue and had a fix. It was an adjustment of the cords that hold the headliner keeping one of the side flaps from foldiing up out of the way. Nice that the system knows something is hung up and stops the process. You can always reach back and help the flap get out of the way with your hand till you get the adjustment made. Hope that helps. With the dealers adjustment (warrenty) my top has been working fine. Liveing in San Diego it gets used about every day.
