Question about 1998 BMW 3 Series
Went to let the top down on my 1998 bmw 323ic the back trunk part opened up and top started coming back and stop. It got stuck so tried to close back and it wouldn't so had to close it manually. Tried to open it again noticed that a red light was flashing that is located above the butten that raises and lowers the convertible top. The top on a BMW 323ci wont go down. The light in by the shifter just keeps on blinking. When I push the button there is just a purr in the trunk (like a moter wont catch). The windows usually go down when the top is starting to move. But no, just the quite purr in the trunk.
Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
Good luck...i hope this helps,
