We just bought a 2010 Final Edition Convertible. When we put the top down we never hear the chime indicating that the top is "latched". The switch clicks indicating the top is down however the light in the temp window flashes yellow when we take off and sounds an audible warning. The top appears to be down but the Manual indicates it is not "latched".:confused:

Not sure how different the 2010 is from the 2003, but here's my input. My top sometimes doesn't "seat" completely when I put it down. My solution is to start the top back up again for 6-9 inches, and then reverse it back down again.. That usually works so the light stops flashing and the flaps close (which I know you don't have).
I'm guessing it's something with the hydraulics, and in my case, just old age. The car that is...well, me too.
Hope this helps...

The chime only dings when the down button is depressed and the top has completed the closing cycle. (Turn radio down) It does not chime when you lock down the top with the handle.
