Did you recently have a dead battery? Either way try to resynchronize your windows (i'm not sure if you meant front window or rear quarter window). If you hold the window switch in the up position(car running and door closed) untill window reaches the top and continue to hold for 10 seconds the window will reprogram itself. try both front windows. This system is complicated and is best diagnosed via s.d.s. diagnostic machine. I will give you a couple of other possible easy remedies. If your vehicle is equiped with a ski window in the rear trunk panal the door must be shut, also your cargo cover must be shut and plastic lid secured. There are numerous micro switches that input to your soft top control unit-any one could cause the top to be inop. Check to make sure the switch on the cargo cover( retractable cover in trunk) is secured to it's housing, they do periodically fall off. Also if your roll bar ( rear head rests ) has been mechanically deployed You must hold the switch in the up position untill the rams lock back into the roll bar-does the roll bar operate? Always operate top with vehicle running because they are very voltage dependent. Your owners manual will explain how to manually raise top and some simple operation and repair remedies. If you are knowledgable about automotive electrical systems you can disconnect both leads from the battery and touch them together to drain the capacitors and it may reset the module( do not attempt if you are not knowledgable with automotive electricity because there are many things that can go wrong. hopefully I have been helpful.

Convertible top wont open where is the microswitch located so that i can test it


It's located on the lower left of the frame as you are standing facing the trunk - drivers side. You can see how the partition is supposed to press on it. Press it with your finger and listen for an audible click. Tape it in the closed position to "fool" the car and see if the top works. It may be bad, broken, or just out of position. Or your partition my need some adjustment and is not pressing the switch properly.

The Convertible top of Mercedes-Benz 2005 CLK 320 won't open or close.


If the "black part" you are talking about is the "trunk partition"(which should come up as a "fault" on the dash when you try and cycle the top) then there are several things to check. The partition itself should snap into the retracted position(forward), and back. If it doesn't there are two struts(also called air springs) that have lost their charge and are not holding the partition in place. It has to be held solidly in place to set the switch on the left side(driver side) in order for the top to go down. If it's at all floppy, it won't set that switch and the top won't cycle. I've found the hard way this is a common problem.
