I HAVE A 1995 M B 500 SL THE SWITCH INDICATOR FOR THE TOP & ROLL BAR STAY IN A BLINKING POSITION. THE TOP, POWER WINDOWS AND ROLL BAR WILL NOT FUNCTION AT ALL... THANK YOU


The control module has set a fault and it will have to be reset. They are sensitive to voltage & must have 12 volts to operate properly.
The windows and top will need to be resync. I cannot find any information regarding the diagnostic procedure for the roof .. it states there is a procedure to diagnose the fault with the number of flashes the switch makes .. a dealer may be your best option on this fault .. I hope this helps some.

My roof on my mercedes slk goes up ok but the windows stay down and the swich flashes


The micro switches for the hard top latches are bad and not sending a closed signal to the control module. When they stop working the control module doesn't know the top is closed so it doesn't raise the windows. Those micro switches are known to go bad. I have changed quite a few of them before.

Hi I have a 2000 mercedes benz 320clk. Today for the first time the top wont go down and the red light is blinking on the button. Any ideas why???


if the light keep blinking it meat all the status for operating not complete could be one thing wrong, first need to be check separating lid in boot if it's properly close and also try 3-4 time that because some time the boot separation lid recognizing switch is not functioning, second step have a look any oil leaking on your roof if it's leaking you can see wet mark on your hood trim, and also have a look too small flaps at both coner between roof and front end of boot lid if the flaps are not close properly do it by hand and try, this is the only thing you can check, most common problems are oil leaking from hydraulic cylinders and boot separation contact switch or corner flaps, if not work any thing you have to get your car in to the Mercedes workshop for diagnose, is this information helped you?

My trunk will not open on my wife's 2001 slk Mercedes. It's not locked. I think something is stuck in the lock. Can you help me?


your can check is it something stuck in the lock, first operate your roof either way, if you are going to open the roof as a first action boot lid will open to backward, let boot lid fully open and stop operating the roof, ignition off and have a look if something stuck you can see, if you are going to close the roof let close the roof and before close the boot lid stop operating roof switch, otherwise faulty boot lid lock, if faulty lock but you can try by mettle key blade which is in your electronic key, first take out mettle key from electronic key then insert mettle key in to the key hole in boot lid turn fully left and open boot if not work turn fully left and push it in, is this information helped you?

My CRX roof wont go up and down with the switch on the dash, yet the boot lid goes up with the key, cheecked fuses ok, cheecked plug and control box fault LED flashed seven times and then later on flashed...


7 blinks (roof lock switch,not operated by user)
9 blinks (rear window switch not operated by user)
These codes mean user has not undone roof locks or rear window is not fully closed
Providing that is not your problem,reset roof control unit
Turn ignition off
In under bonnet fuse box remove fuse 32 7.5 amp for 20 seconds
Refit fuse and check roof operation
This clears codes and resets roof

Audi A4 Cabriolet roof stopping half way open


refer to the owners manual, for instructions to put down roof by hand, they are not easy to follow, however, the manual key they refer to is in the fuse panel, the 1st lock to undo is in the middle section of the back seat, next the lock for the front section push down roof and lock in place. the warning light at this point will still be flashing, and the display saying roof unsecure. the bit everyone seems to forget is to go back to the middle back seat lock and relock, once that is done, display clears, and both roof and boot should work. i have no idea why this fault occured just hoping its doesn't too often. suggest also you always have engine on when operating roof. hope you find this usefull.

My slk 2000 roof has just stopped working. It wont go down at al


Sounds like maybe some pin switches for interlocks have gone bad. Open your trunk and look for the rubber booted switches and try holding them or shorting them, if you make the top move it shows you which ones are bad.

Sticking roof


This symptom almost always points to a lubrication issue. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to belubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions andphotos:
