1996 993 cabriolet top malfunctions


Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 67000;

Since owning this car for the past 6 months I have had numerous difficulties with the top. It seems to work one day and then will fail to close. Every time I took it to the dealer to repair it of course it would work fine. After going through this hassle several times and having various possible causes checked (parking brake switch, fuses, straps)I replaced the control unit with a rebuilt one from Ottos in CA. That seemed to solve the problem for several weeks but now the top latches fail to latch and the top has frozen partially closed. I am very frustrated with this intermittent problem and am having difficulty getting it resolved. Any suggestions would be helpful. I cannot have an unreliable cab top and am tired of using the emergency procedure to get it closed. Thanks
