Hi i just recently bought a Chrysler 200 convertible and my top is doing the exact same thing yours is. Did you ever find out anything else on why this was happening or where to get a limit switch?I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 Touring model...a beautiful machine, until the limit switch went on convertible top. Within inch of closing and message "top not secured" displayed on dash....trunk hatch button inoperable and windows won't totally close. A Chrysler dealership is now working on it but I need a new limit switch and Chrysler doesn't manufacture the switches any longer...and none to be found in Canada or USA. I am very disappointed that Chrysler cannot support their product. And our only solution is to try to get a used one. Unbelievable there is no contingent plan for the raising & lowering of a convertible top and they stop making switch that obviously may be in greater need later than sooner in this vehicle's lifetime. Idea: if parts are on the "endangered" list, please let people know...Had I known, I would've purchased one on spec, just in case. There would always be a market for it.
Does anyone have any info or ideas?
I just recently bought a 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible and my top is doing the exact same thing yours was and having all the same other issues with the rear defrost not working and the trunk not opening without a key, except I got an error message saying "convertible top not secured." Did you ever find out anything else on why this was happening or how to fix it?
I need help with my top that is not securing... not sure how to email on here but if you can email me or even respond to this post I can give you my number. Thanks in advanceI'm writing again from a computer, maybe this time there will be an IP address.
Anyways, I am pretty sure I got it figured out what the problem is with the convertible top for the latter sebrings and 200.
If anyone needs help free of charge, please contact me and I will be of assistance.
Did you get this issue resolved?Convertable Top Stuck
I just had the same thing happen to my 2011 200S Convertable. Top is almost fully closed within a qtr inch. Only way to tell it is not fully closed is the note on the dashboard and when driving faster than 20mph you can hear the wind coming in through the small barely noticeable gap. Also trunk will not open.
This happened to my car and it was a 5 minute fix. The knob that controls the latches was stuck. Take the upper panel behind the mirrors off. There is a "star" knob in the middle. Turn it to the right until it clicks. It will restart the closing cycle and everything will work fine.On a 2012 Limited convertible, top stuck between up and down. Error message says "convertible top not secured". Switch is dead any suggestions. Cargo shield is up and locked.
