Default 2006 GT Convertible

Odd tuning question.

Can tuning adjust the speed at which the convertible switch is disabled?

Sometimes at a stop light I am almost complete opening or closing the top and I move and it stops, I was thinking 5mph would be better??

Thoughts?

Mine won't move without the e-brake engaged so I don't go anywhere.

That would be another thing to see if it can't get changed in a tune?

My 2002 would not engage unless the E brake is up, my 2006 will engage though

Why risk damage to it? 5 MPH driving plus the ambient wind speed puts a lot of force on the top as it raises / lowers.

I would imagine this is controlled by the Body Control Module, not likely in the PCM itself

I have a manual trans and if you have an auto maybe that is the diff as to why my e-brake needs engaged? Or could be just a safety feature added between 06 and 08. Just a thought.

E brake needed to be engaged in my 01 GT convertible (automatic) too. Has to be enabled in my 07 GT (manual) too.

This isn't something you can change with a tuner that I have seen. you could probably put something inline with the wiring to the hydraulic motor to trick it into thinking it the brake is on or you're not moving, but the risk isn't worth the reward in my opinion.
