Just for the record (since I've been reading this thread for the last week), I'm having similar issues as jkatt with my 2011 370Z Roadster. Regardless of the direction (open/close), the roof stops halfway through the process (Page 20, stops at CL-4 of Factory Service Manual - RF) and I have to manually close/open the roof. Greatly appreciate everyone's input and all of the resources on this thread. I'm gonna try some of the fixes (OBD DTC codes, fuses, chaffed wires) that worked here and see if I can get my roof fixed... It's such a tragedy that a fine car as the 370Z has these issues. I'll update sometime later this week with what I find.

Turns out it was a pair of chaffed wires that was causing a short in the wiring harness. I was able to splice in some extra wire to repair it, but now the roof pauses about 1' up when I try to open it.

It'll open fully when given an encouraging nudge... Here goes another weekend.

Default top was easy fix in February, now major problem, top opens part way.

It is probably electrical & there are just so many possibilities I wouldn't know where to start. There have been a couple of members that have had wiring harness problems due to a breakage from opening & closing all the time. Sorry I can't help you.
Top is broken

Sorry to hear the new problems. Have you talked to Klaus at TopHydraulics? He usually can help with all things hydraulic.
Good luck, please keep us updated.

Seems to me if you get it from Nissan you will have the same thing you have now. Not a good thing at that price.

From the sound of things Top Hydraulics will rebuild the cylinders with better seals. If it were mine I'd send them to TH and rebuild it with better than new, probably one or two at a time until they're all done.

As always YMMV and all that.

Hey guys,

readed the whole topic and have a problm as well. At the beginning there was no trouble to open the roof but sometimes during closing is stucks befor the back has starts to get closed (see video)
https://streamable.com/4h1id

But when i supported the roof at this point by hands it worked. Then sometimes the same happend during opening. Now the roof is not coming out more then 20 cm of the box then it falls back. After 2-3 seconds i can try it again but still the same. The pump is working until this moment and more or less operating fine.
Ive tried to block the roof befor the issue to check if there is a problem with the weight but its working fine as long as i hold it. But when i release its still just going to the same point.

I figured out that there is some electrical issue because in the moment when it stucked the audio get some trouble. And when i tried it a few times during the process some of the turning lights is going on... So i checked the on wire where you guys had problems before but there they are looking good. Did someone has a image of the whole wire in the roof? Would checked it before i pay a million to nissan. Or is there any other option to check if there is some issue?

And actually i have to push the button the whole time. When i release my finger it stops. Maybe so e trouble with the ecu of the roof if there is one?

I hope someone can help me.
Best regards from germany
