Question about 2004 Audi A4
If it is fluid drive, check fluid first. Remove the spare tire and on the right side of the spare compartment there is an oval gap in the metal. You may have to position the black cover out of the way. Reach in and see if there is oil on the bottom of the compartment. If not, probably no leak. Same oil as the power steering and not easy to top off. You may be able to look in there with a mirror, also. Nothing about the Cab top is simple. Typically, there are broken wires in the harness in the trunk lid. They may be broken internally and you can't see the break. You must trace each wire and check it for continuity with an ohm meter, then split the wire insulation and repair it or replace it, typically at the bending point. Way too expensive to buy a new wire bundle from Audi. In your case, the failure occurs at the point in the sequence where the trunk lid is locked. If the trunk does not lock, or the Convertible Top Control Module does not receive the signal that the trunk is locked, it stops the opening sequence. This prevents the convertible top compartment cover from banging into an open trunk lid. There may be other issues, but this one is typical. This system for control of the top is very complex; u will need to have the Audi dealer test it if still it does not work after doing all the above things.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
