Micro Switch : Small switches that are used to input body part positions like the convertible top, trunk, hood , door or locks are called micro switches. A micro switch for the convertible top tells the top computer various things such as: bow position, latch position, lid position and open / closed position. Body computers use micro switches to know if the door is open, the key is in the ignition, trunk is open, hood is open or the lock is locked.
Micro switch failures may cause a power convertible top not to work, locks not lock, door / hood / or trunk lights to stay on the instrument cluster or even cause the alarm to go off on the car, truck, van or suv.
