Hard top question

Besides "I wish I had one"....I was thinking what happens when you try to put up the convertible top when the hard top is in place ??

The car will not let you even try. There are sensors built in telling the car that the hardtop in in place. Press the power top button all you want, it won't do a thing.

That was actually an easy top question, not a hard top question at all!

I have one and the center latch activates the top switch just like the soft-top does. It closes the windows and turns off the dash light showing the top is up and latched
