Audi 80 Cabriolet Roof Problem

I have a problem with my Audi 80 Cabriolet 1996. I have a fault with my manual soft top. I have a t bar function which I have to turn in order for the roof to unlock and the windows should drop slightly automatically. This function does not work and is also connected to the window switch located on the centre console near the handbrake which allows all the windows to open at the same time. I noticed that a fuse in the fuse box keeps on blowing that is linked to this function. Have you any idea why this fuse is blowing?

Make sure the car is on level ground. I had the same problem several times. Finally figured out in talking with the Audi service adivsor that if the car is on a hill (like my driveway) internal sensors can't tell the position of the top so it stops.

The owners manual has procedures for manually closing/locking the top.

Want to convert my electric audi 80 roof into a manual one


no need to convert.
the electic roof can be opened manually by:-
unlock the roof using the handle on top of the windscreen and push roof back as far as posible.
lift flaps adjacent to door pillers
you will see a small lever which can be retracted (both sides)
when these levers are retracted the roof will push down fully into its compartment
when erecting the roof ensure that the two levers are fully open to accept the roof retaing lugs

No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.
