    This module comes with our USB Field Upgrade and Configuration Port! We recommend connecting it to a computer BEFORE YOU INSTALL and using our support app "m4cconnect" to do a quick firmware update check. M4cconnect as well as all other information regarding USB update and configuration can be found at You can even configure and activate your favorite module functions and settings on screen before the module is installed in the car! It is a good idea to permanently install the USB cable with the module in the car, leaving the computer plug in an easily accessible spot for later use with a Wifi/3G/4G connected laptop.

    If the top does not work properly or at all after installing the module, these tips can be very helpful:

    1) Turn Function 1 (Main Switch) off (Setting 0). The module will be completely passive. If the problem still persists and the top won't work, check all connections. Please also check the green DATA LED on the module!

    2) Function 2 now has a valet mode (Setting 2) on many modules. Valet mode completely disables opening of the top. Check the setting for function 2 and make sure the module is NOT in valet mode!

    IMPORTANT: Not all modules have the valet mode! Please check the Operation and Programming Manual!
    Installation - Steps 1-3
    1. Before installing the kit, fully open the convertible top, then turn the ignition off. Open the right door and pull back the rubber seal as shown. Loosen the screw (1) with a hex tool (does not need to be fully removed), so the side piece can be unhooked.
    2. Lift the side out piece towards the front and grab behind it to carefully pull.
    3. Watch out for the hook (circled) that holds it in place in the front. Once that hook is free, the piece comes out easily.
    Installation - Steps 4-6
    4. The black top control module is now exposed. The two marked plugs (1) and (2) need to be removed. Push the locking tabs in while wiggling the plugs out.
    5. The grey and green plug shown disconnected.
    6. Connect the matching plugs from the Mods4cars wiring harness to the top controller module. Make sure they latch securely into place.
    Installation - Steps 7-9
    7. Connect the two original plugs to the sockets on the harness. Also make sure all connections latch securely into place. Connect the module itself to the harness and tap the unlock button on the remote once. The green DATA LED on the module should blink to indicate a successful install.
    8. Tuck all wires in the hollow spaces and place the module in a hollow space or attach it using the supplied velcro pad. We recommend connecting the USB cord and installing it in an accessible spot for firmware updates or easy module configuration via laptop later.
    9. USB cord shown after finished installation. Don't forget to configure the module according to our Operation and Programming manual.
