Yeah you need to hold the button down to close or open the roof, once that light goes off then you can drive!

How do I put the top down?


put the car in neutral, pull emergency brake on, and push the top down button. i believe they did away with the manual lock unlock for the roof latch so it should be automatic from there.

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.

2002 boxster roof is stuck down



Jun 20, 2009- Hi, try the below, it worked for me. Just cut and pasted mine. Hope it works for you.

All sorted, thanks. I did check the fuse and it was OK. Thankfully I found another problem the same on here which suggested it might be the microswitch under the handbrake lever which de- activates the hood. Prior dismantalling the centre console I thought, maybe if it's stuck a bit of wiggling of the hand brake might just do it. I released the handbrake and pressed it down with a bit more than usual force several times repeatedly into the off position. Lo and behold, I pressed the button again and it worked!!! Hooray for the internet!!! Thanks so much, had the pound signs flashing before my eyes for a moment!!!
