    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 www.mods4cars.com/usb. 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.
    IMPORTANT TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS

    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!
    FUNCTION OF THE DATA LED

    The DATA LED shows the module status and helps troubleshooting issues during installation:

    When the ignition is ON: The LED should BLINK (flash) in a regular pattern (about 1x per second). This indicates that the module is receiving data and should work OK.

    When the ignition is OFF: The LED should BLINK (flash) as long as the data bus is still active and turn off after a while (max 5 min) indicating that the car has entered stand-by (sleep) mode.

    If the LED is permanently lit with the ignition ON, the module is NOT receiving data from the top controller and all connectors should be checked.

    If the LED does NOT light up at all when turning the ignition ON, the module is either not getting power or not receiving ANY data. All connectors should be checked.
    Installation - Steps 1-3
    1. Completely open the convertible top. Leave the ignition on.
    2. Remove the two lids as shown, then remove the screws (1) and (2). Remove the entire coverpiece by pulling it straight up.
    3. Now close the top half way to the position shown, then turn the ignition fully off.
    Installation - Steps 4-6
    4. Unhinge the top of the carpeted cover in order to fold it back.
    5. View from the back through the rear window. Fold the dark carpeted cover back and down. Located in the left corner is the top control unit.
    6. Top control unit, seen through the back window. Remove the large black plug by flipping the locking lever over. The lever is held in place by a small locking tab. See the equivalent plug on the supplied SmartTOP wiring harness for reference.
    Installation - Step 7
    7. Connect the plug-and-play wiring harness in between. Connect the original plug to the socket and the corresponding plug to the top control unit. Lock both with the levers. Connect the module to the harness and tap the unlock button on the remote once to activate the data bus system. The green LED on the module should now blink. Put everything back together and configure the module according to our Operation and Programming manual.
