hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections
you could try resetting the system also as this may help
if its still the same after this post back and ill try and help again.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 SL500
one or more of your hydraulic cylinders are bad. The pump turns but the hydraulic cylinders are stuck or leaking internally and not building pressure to lift/lower anything.
There are six of them, they are expensive and it is time consuming to replace them. If you are exceptionally handy (and have a resonable set of metric tools), then I would recommend looking up on various web site and service manuals to do it yourself to avoid the labor at the shops. New, replacement cylinders are occasionally available on ebay. They are ok but not original equipment MB.
Have a dealer confirm my diagnosis but that is usually the problem after 8 - 10 years. MB doesn't tell anyone about this when they are sold new but the deck is a high maintenance item after 5 - 6 years.
