it was a sensor beside the soft top on the driver side. Some kind of switch/sensor that cost about 40/50? Dont remember what it was called got it from Nissan dealer. The techs were useless had a independant mechanic figure it out.

Nissan wants 8k in parts before they start work on it.

Got second opinion besides nissan saying top was installed improperly

Gonna more than likely go to court with upholstery shop.

Still dont know issue.

Its an upholstery shop so they dont do any car repair work at all and i've never had this problem at all.

Does our car have a fuse or relay for the top?

the sensor is located by the driver size fuse box

So Dudegetalife. I read your struggle and confirming your last post. so this entire time, this one wierd sensor was causing the top not to go down? There was no other fault like top was installed wrong etc?

Boderjoe:Not understanding your question. I think in post #22, you are answering that question.

Fuses all good. Can’t find box behind driver’s seat. Opened panel, but didn’t see it.

There are a lot of conditions that have to met for the top to begin opening from full close. I would highly recommend downloading the RF section of the FSM to help you troubleshoot.
