Question for convertible owners w/scanners...

On convertible models, The Folding Top Controller (FTC) or Module has a data bucket called "Full Cycle Counter" that's apparently intended to aggregate and store the number of down/up cycles the top has completed over the car's life. This item is available from a Tech 2 compatible scanner by accessing the "Data Items" menu for the controller.

I'm curious what cycle counts other owners have seen, if any. My car reports "0", which of course is not correct. The service manual I have indicates the number should increment. Any convertible owners out there have experience with this? It's probably not particularly useful but I'm curious.

Thanks in advance. - Mark

I do not have a scanner nor do I have any information on this Mark.
I like the question and am glad you asked it as well.!!

Mine has an equally inexplicable result of "3", so it does seem to be counting something. Perhaps it is something odd like "since the last ignition cycle" or similar to have such a low value.
