Talking Convertible Top Problems!

Hello everyone, I am new to the site but came looking for help! I have an '06 G6 convertible with 70k miles on it. Physically, the car is in immaculate shape, but I seem to be having some new problems with it! The biggest and most concerning is with the convertible top. At the end of the summer, the top would "pop" open when i went to put it down, but it would not lift up and go down. When i would reverse the button to close it, it closes and locks back up with ease. Any suggestions on what it is? As spring is coming, I am taking it to the dealership on Monday to have it fixed. What should I expect??

A second problem i am having is with the heat. It takes forever to warm up, and the heat only blows when i hit the gas! when i am at a light, it immediately starts blowing cold air. Any suggestions there on that?

Thanks!!

First check the coolant level in the reservoir.

The switch or relay may be bad if it only works in one direction.

I have a 2007 G6 GT and my top will go as far as lifting the trunk lid but the top won't lift off the windshield. I used to be able to push the button in the opposite direction and at least close it. But now I have to wait until gravity slowly closes the trunk lid, then pressing the switch it will complete the operation and secure the top. There is a GM paper #07-08-67-010B: Retractable Hard Top Switch Diagnosis I found. It requires a Tech 2 to poll the computer for error codes. I would love to find a shop to fix this.

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 convertible. I love my car, but on Thursday could not get the top to close. The deck lid opens but will not go any further. I currently have it at the GM dealership (a former Pontiac store) Today (Saturday) they still seemed stumped as to what the problem is. I need my car back! Any suggestions?

Ok I have a 2008 GT that only had 15,000 miles on it looks and smelled like new sat in a garage because the old lady whose deceased husband bought it new didn't like it. Well today went to put top down and would not secure the trunk lid will not go all the way in place otherwise everything seems the same and have had no problems before. I tried to put the top up and it will go up but not latch securely and the trunk lid will not go into place either I am sick. I was going to Florida in couple of weeks and scared they cannot get the roof fixed on the car taking it to the chevy dealer in the morning. Anyone else have this problem? If i get it back in place I don't think I will ever take it down again based on what everyone is saying on here about parts breaking and you can't find them now. Wish I had known about this before buying the car.

OK i am having the car looked at by a place the used to do the work for the former local Pontiac dealership they have a DVD from GM on how to work on it they told me. Said that the trunk lid was setting back out of adjustment and didn't know the cause the have the top up which is would do on its own and its secured with truck lid in place but you can't open the trunk. I told them haven't done anything wrong and never have items in there with top down. The only thing that might have happened was when pulling the safety shade into place i may have not shut the trunk lid down good. They told me they didn't think that caused a problem because there are sensor that would not have allowed the top to retract if the truck lid was not latched correctly. I am praying they can get it fixed was going to drive to Florida 4/6 and stay with friends for a week and wanted to use it. Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated also if you could suggest a list of parts that go bad I am thinking of buying the ones I can find now while I can still find them to stock pile them. Even if I don't use them I figure I could sell them with the car in couple of years since its like brand new. I feel like I need to sell it sooner if I can't use the top that was why I bought it to begin with.

Last fall, I had similar problems that were posted here. The lid opened, top started up to close, but would lock & not shut. The dealership (former Pontiac) discovered that the bracket that the hinge was wielded to the roof on was broken. I had to have a whole new roof installed. Luckily a former Pontiac store in the southern part of the state had one. When I 2st bought the car 5 yrs ago the motor had to be replaced.

Wow that doesn't sound good the former Pontiac dealership was sold and the current GM Chevy Buick dealership did not have time to get to it so that's why I went with a trim shop that does convertible tops. They told me they used to do all of the work for the former Pontiac dealership and that they had a DVD from Pontiac on it. They have had a guy off sick so have not done anything other than they got the top back up and the pushed the trunk lid into place but it will not open like a normal trunk. I wonder how I could have a weld on the top break like yours when the top would go up and down the only problem was the trunk lid would not move into place to lock down. Never had a problem and before I bought the car I would be the top only went down dozen times because it sat in a garage because the lady whose husband bought it new for her died and she didn't like the car and didn't drive it because it was a convertible. I can't believe I did anything to break a hinge especially on the top, I could see how it could be a trunk lid hinge. Was the part hard to get that's what worried me and should I start trying to buy certain spare parts? Any suggestions there.
