Convertible roof wont close properly. dinging noise and light flashing

Top went down but wouldn't close. managed to close it enough manually before taking to volvo dealer. recalibrated it and managed to get it closed(although still a slight gap) but now have permanent "dinging "noise and flashing warning light to say roof not closed properly. too scared to push button to find out if it will now open/close. dealership just said a couple of error codes were noted. is there any specifications on the electric roof which pinpoint areas to check /fix on the operating system ? please help

SOURCE: Radio code for volvo s40

If the display says "Off" the radio is locked from incorrect code input.

You need to leave the key in the accessory position with the radio on (display reads 'Off') for about two hours.
After that it should ask for he code again. You have three tries before it locks again.
Some radios are different, but typically you use the knob to adjust the numbers, push the knob in to move to the next number

SOURCE: catalytic converter check engine light 2001 s60 volvo

usually if you start to hear a rumble, and by rumble i mean it sounds like a bunch of pieces of metal are clanking around in your exhaust then the catalytic converter needs to be repaired. It could also be the oxygen sensor which is located on top of the converter. Volvo did an interesting job of having them sit on top of each other.

'02 BMW 330 convertible top (fully automatic) stopped working while putting it down today. How do I repair it?


I would start by checking the pertaing fuses and relay. To check the relay swap one from another accessory that you don't imediately need.If you top operates then you just need to replace that relay. Keep in mind you have power centers under the hood, under the dash and sometimes under the rear seat.If the roof is stuck halfway and is dangerous to drive with there should be an emergency release located between the hydraulic pistons it is usually in the for of a T-handle.

Can not open my mini cooper roof all the way


Have you checked the parcel shelf is seated properly as there are micro switches beneath it so the car knows it will not jam the roof as it is lowered?

When the roof is open, the warning light won't go out.


I know that when you lower the top, you have to hold the button up for several seconds after the top is completely lowered in order for the locks to engage. The top motor will still run and when it is finished, you will hear a "ding". to indicate it is fully down. The error will go away and your temp will show up again. I had to call the dealer to find this out.

Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic


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,

Convertable roof and trunk won't open


The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.
