    Top won't do down

    Your problem is likely to be the folding top position sensor. It is a potentiometer on the driver side folding top hinge. You can reach it with your hand with the top halfway open (rear window vertical.) It is just behind the drivers seat. It has a wire running to it. It may be loose or bad. It...

    low oil light and low oil pressure coming on but no leak and the car is sitting still

    Our low brake fluid message came on the recently when parked on a downhill slope, then went away. We were slightly low on fluid I believe due to pad wear @ 43K miles. Topped it off. We typically idle at 20 PSI at 190 to 210 degrees, 40+ PSI when cold. Dave
