    fuse is ok, right?

    sounds like it could be the motors or actuators. Very common problem in these cars. And very expensive to fix. I hope that this is not the problem and something more simple. Without looking at it i cant give you a solution.

Check your trunks storage shelf. It needs to be down for the top to let back. I had the same prob. then to find out it was only the shelf. Hope it works for you

2003 audi a4 cabrio top wont open. thinking the trunk piece doesnt drop down as it should

Before anything you have to make sure the lever in the trunck is in the correct position. Assuming it is...

...does the top start to open or it doens't even move? Does the hatch where the top goes into start to open? If so, stop the top after you see that the hatch has completely opened, then manually push that piece down. Be carefull not to get stuck and make sure nobody is operating the top while you're attempting this so you don't get your arm stuck there for any reason.

You could also try to access it from the truck and pull it down manually. I may just snap back into place and the problem will go away. On my car, one of the sides was stuck UP and the other was working. Once it snapped back into place it works every time.

1997 Saturn SC1 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 107XXX miles i was driving to work today and looked down and my service light came on. I called my boyfriend and asked what to do and he said just go to...

could be a body control module that went bad, but should have the service engine soon light investigated.

Have the car scanned by an OBD-II scanner by your local technician or by an auto parts store like Autozone or Advance. Many times they will do it for free.

Be aware that the body control module is separate from the engine computer which OBD-II was designed to scan.

I have a 2001 bmw 325ci. COnvertible top was working fine, now it wont let down or anything. light comes on but no movement. Please help!

i would check to see if the luggage compartment (trunk) isn't expanded. If it is the convertible top module wont allow the top to move. If the trunk is open or there is a problem in the wiring and a check control message is displayed the top won't open either
