3 Affected Products
Bulletin No.: 16-NA-257
Date: November, 2017
|Subject:||Top Not Secure Message Displayed on DIC, Rear Compartment Lid May Not Open|
|Involved Region or Country||NORTH AMERICA and N.A. EXPORT REGIONS|
|Condition||Some customers may comment on a “Top Not Secure” message being displayed on the DIC, and the rear compartment lid may not open. The technician may find the folding top latch actuator is latching however the magnet is NOTaligned with the position sensor.|
|Cause||The cause of the condition may be the amount of time the folding top control module drives the latches, possibly causing them to bounce back past the sensor.|
|Correction||Note: Verify the vehicle build breakpoint, and perform the applicable repair as designated by the information in the Service Procedure below.
Technicians should verify the condition, then program the folding top control module and, based on build date, complete the re-balance procedure of the folding top front latch actuator motor and the front latching mechanism.
Note: For vehicles built October 1, 2016 and prior, it will also be necessary to re-balance the folding top front latch actuator motor and the front latching mechanism, ALONG with reprogramming the folding top control module.
- For vehicles built after October 1, 2016, move ahead to step #8 in the procedure below and ONLY reprogram the folding top control module.
- For vehicles built October 1, 2016 and prior, complete all the steps of the latch re-balancing procedure AND the folding top control module reprogramming below.
Note: The following steps to balance the Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Motor may correct the noted condition, and also MUST be done every time the Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Motor is loosened or removed for any reason. If following steps are not followed, failure of the Folding Top Front Latch Release Rods will occur.
- Remove the folding top number 1 bow garnish molding. Refer to Folding Top Number 1 Bow Garnish Molding Replacement in SI.
- Loosen the three bolts (1) retaining the folding top front latch actuator motor. Refer to Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Motor Replacement in SI. Ensure the motor bolts are loose enough that the motor (2) can be moved freely side to side.
- Using a 6.0 mm Hex wrench, turn the Allen key feature (1) until the latch hooks (2) are completely open.
- Turn the Allen key feature (1) in the opposite direction until the latch hooks (2) are completely closed.
- Re-secure the actuator motor by tightening the three motor bolts (1) to 9 Nm (80 lb in).
- Verify condition is corrected and proper latch activation of the front latching mechanism.
- Reinstall the folding top number 1 bow garnish molding. Refer to Folding Top Number 1 Bow Garnish Molding Replacement in SI.
- Reprogram the folding top control module. Refer to K23 Folding Top Control Module: Programming and Setup in SI.
For vehicles repaired under the Bumper-to-Bumper coverage (Canada Base Warranty coverage), use the following labor operation. Reference the Applicable Warranties section of Investigate Vehicle History (IVH) for coverage information.

To obtain the latest electronic controller calibration information for your vehicle, go to https://tis2web.service.gm.com/tis2web and enter the vehicle’s 17 character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select ‘Get CAL ID’.
You can then compare the latest part number with the actual number installed on the vehicle to determine if a reprogram is needed.
The Service Programming System (SPS) application is part of the TIS2Web system. To program an ECU, the SPS application must communicate with the vehicle control modules using the proper J2534 programming interface tool.
The following are the supported interface tools:
The Tech 2 supports model years 1996 and beyond. With the addition of the CAN Diagnostic Interface (CANdi) module, Tech 2 is fully backward compatible with current Tech 2 functionality and operates transparently when diagnosing non-CAN-equipped vehicles.
The GM MDI is the Global Diagnostic tool for future vehicles starting with Global A vehicles. The GM MDI was introduced in the fall of 2007 for Pass-Thru programming and offers faster programming speed. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and into the future. Click here to view a list of GDS supported vehicles.
