Well, let’s just say I was lucky to be in my driveway. I was cleaning the car over the weekend and vacuumed the trunk. In doing so I removed the divider shelf and thought I had securely reinstalled it. Upon completion of cleaning the car I thought I would take it for a spin. Since it was I beautiful day I proceeded to put the top down. The windows went down, the rear shelf lifted and the top unlatched. At this point I got a warning on the DIC that I needed to secure the package shelf. Not sure if that is exactly what it says but I needed to secure the tray in the trunk. So I proceeded to attempt to close the roof. Well I received the same message on the DIC. The roof would not open or close now, but it remained unlatched and the shelf behind the seats was up. I then figured I could use the key to unlock the trunk and secure the shelf. No such luck, truck would not open since it saw the roof at the starting to open mode. After a couple of minutes of scratching my head I figured my only choice was to disconnect the battery and see what happens. I did this and the key allowed me to open the trunk, I secured the shelf, connected the battery and was able to put the top down.
The only thing I should have tried was resetting the DIC to see if that would override the error to allow me to close the roof with the tray not secure. Has anyone tried this? Anyway, I now carry an open-end wrench in the glove box in case this happens when I am away from home. Hate to have the car towed in for this one.
