I have a 2006 new beetle had headliner replaced now anything electric does not work windows door locks trunk sun roof


Whoever did the headliner may have cut or shorted out a wire near the sunroof if it's electric. I would take it back to them, tell them what happened, and ask them to fix the problem.

My trunk opens the roof will not retract how do I fix?


Your trunk opens... the roof? It would help if you had the make, model and year as well as a clearer question since I have yet to see a truck that opens a roof in any car.
If you mean you have two problems as in my trunk opens when I hit a bump or my trunk opens when I use the open button for the sun roof then we may hazard a guess.

Sun roof fuze or computer chip


What are you asking in some detail?

I would suspect any sun roof issue was mechanical
& electrical & not computer related or even part of
any module back in 1999

Your answer to electrical system functions is looking
at a wiring diagram

Have you checked the fuses yet ? Sounds like a major power fuse has blown.

My 2001 325ci convertable bmw has the trunk light on. With it on, the electric roof will not work. Is there power going to the trunk latch. If so, which wire has the power. Is there a way to bypass...


The system is designed so that with the trunk open it will not open the roof. If the trunk is fully closed and the trunk light is still on, then find the switch in the boot which operates the light. If you disconnect any wires you could disable the boot completely. Including security.

Convertible top will not retrack


Hi Stan

First of all the roof is not even soppose to operate while the trunk is open - So there is the first problem Ive been involved with BMW's for a long time and this is the first Ive heard of a roof opening while the trunk is open. There is a built in feature that tells the car not to open the roof if the trunk is open and the other way roung while the roog lid is open the trunk cant open.

The reason the roof is not working anymore as soon as there is stress on the roof the electric motors(One operates the roof and the other operates the roof lid)  disengages, You said that the roof still worked but the lid did not so probably only the one motor disengaged. So what you have to do is open the trunk on the left hand side right behind the tail light pull away the material and simply just push the electric motor into place. that should fix your problem.

It may happen that the two motors have become out of sync, Disengage both electric motors manualy put the roof away engage the motors and that should put the roof and lid back into sync.

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

Power sun roof


It may be a circuit breaker.My windows and door locks stopped working,even after checking all fuses and replacing Main Driver side door switch! Found three circuit breakers that you can reset with a paper clip or small screwdriver. They were black with an aluminum cover on top. They don't come out easily,just insert the pin on each one.
