Red lamp in top switch would not go out
Disconnected a cable from one of the lock switches on my own car to try and duplicate Sven's problem. When all was back together the red lamp would not go out ever...not with the top completely raised or lowered. Found no malfunction codes and all of the latch swithces checked out. At my wits end. Disconnected the battery and reconnected...light still on. With the ignition on but the engine off, I accessed the top control unit and disconnected the cables to it. Light still on. I verified proper inputs from the lock swithes at the control unit. When I reassembled the cables, the lamp went out. Everything is fine...
I suppose cycling power to the control unit did the trick. But why disconnecting the battery did not work but disconnecting the cables did I have no clue.
