- My model of MX-5 is: __2013 NC 3.5 sport tech coupe hardtop
- I’m based near: __grantham
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: __ an issue with the folding top
this has happened twice now.
I pushed the button to put the top up and instead of the top going it, it just beeped at me.
it gives 3 quick beeps and the top didn’t go up.
the first time it happen I locked the car went away for 5 mins and when I came back and got in it and pressed the button the top went up fine.
the second time it happened
I got out of the car opened and closed the doors and boot lid and then locked and unlocked the car a couple of times from the key fob. and when I got back in again it went up fine.
so I’m going to take a wild guess here and it really is a wild guess.
I think the sensor that tells the roof that the car is in gear or moving is not resetting properly.
moving logically from the fact that the roof won’t operate while the car is moving or in gear I presume that there are either 1 or 2 sensors, probably in the gearbox, that give that info to the roof.
and the fact that when I have gone to close the roof on 2 occasions now and it has beeped as if it was moving or in gear, leads me to think that the sensor or sensors are at issue and need replacing!
so what do you guys think?
is my wild guess on the mark or am I way off?
