Unhappy 2005 Beetle Convertible: Top stuck down!


I've a 2005 beetle convertible and I put the top down the other day and now it won't come back up.

This thing suddenly has had a rash of electrical issues, too. The driver side door doesn't roll down the window a smidge any more when i open it.

Does anyone know how to get the top back up? And where I might start in investigating what's gone wrong?

Rash of electrical problems like you describe would point to something with the Body Control Module. May be as simple as a loose connector.

You'll probably need to find someone who can test it out...which will probably mean a dealer.

Welcome to the forums.

Not that it's going to help you with the top at the moment but is there any reason you're aware of which might explain the electrical issues? No flooding of the vehicle or mice chewing on wires? I think it's time to start tracing wires and see where the issues are.
