Tigra Electric Roof & Boot Problems
You need to pump the hydraulics manually, to do this first sit on boot and press boot button for a few seconds without allowing the boot to open. Partially allow boot to open, manually push boot all the way open and closed a dozen or so times to manually pump hydraulics. I had same prob, this sounds extreme but does work and wont cost you a penny.

SOURCE: SAAB convertible roof wont open
I managed to sort the problem, turns out there's a shear pin. I found this pin sitting in the bag in the back (the one the roof folds into) Now i just have to replace that and hopefully it should work

check the parcel shelf has been refitted correctly as there is a micro switch on the left hand side that stops the second stage of the roof from opening

This symptom almost always points to a mechanical issue, not an
electrical one. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to be
lubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions and
Sticking joints are the most common culprit to intermittent raising and lowering problems. Once those have been lubricated and that has been checked off the list, then consider looking into electrical issues.
The moisture from the rain may be helping to lubricate these joints and that might be why it works fine in the rain...
