Question about 2008 Saab 9-3
1999 saab convertible. The top goes up and 90% of the way down.. The motors run well, they stop at the last step, the back end of the roof is at a 90 degree angle to the body . Is there a relay or fuse for this last segment?
I had the same problem last summer. I fixed it by replacing the microswitches (kind of tricky to get to). BUT NOW I have this problem (I am going to copy/paste from another saab site I posted on) :
"Last summer, I had to replace one of the microswitches for the top & it finally worked fine.
Just a few weeks later, I replaced the car battery. MINUTES after I replaced battery, the top went back to doing what it was doing before I replaced the microswitch (when putting top back up, the cycle would stop when the back windshield was supposed to go down & lock down - it stays stuck up inthe air. Also, when top is down after several minutes it beeps 'check soft top' - The top was actually being put DOWN when the battery/car died. Then I went got a battery (in my 2nd car), replaced it, went to put top back UP & here I am...)
So I checked both the microswitches again & replaced the one I hadn't before - but it still won't work.
A friend who has a '05 convertibel said she thought the electrical system had to be 're-calibrated' or re-set when battery is changed.
Motor fuid is full. Propellar is new.
Car has been parked in my garage since NOV w/top down. Any advice? "
I posted that on saabsite.com - haven't heard back except for someone else having other electrical problems.
Did you find the solution to your? PLEASE let me know what you found out.
THANK YOU!! SK 9 FEB 10

No but also make sure theres nothing inside jamming it,or ther may be another motor that pulls it all the down, i would make sure its not hitting something in the trunk first.
