Question about 1997 Audi Cabriolet

1 Answer

I recently had my battery replaced. Since then, my convertible top on my 1997 Audi cabriolet won't work. When the mechanic looked for codes - one came up related to the trunk release but he was unable to figure our what was wrong. Usually, when you release the top, the windows go down a bit (which they still do) and the truck (which houses the top when down) lifts up - which it is not! Please help - stuck undercover in sunny San Diego -Thanks!

    I had the same problem, minus the battery replacement,. It was the tiny wire that leads to the trunk lock. It had a small break in the area where it kinks when the trunk lid is down, this told the car that the runk was open, and prevented the auto mechanism from working. A small snip and some electrical tape, and the roof was working again. Good luck

If you are having trouble w/ the top. Check to make sure the central locking system is working properly. Also as on my Cabri, try locking the trunk 1st. Hope this helps

i believe that your trunk is unlocked and to prevent damage the system locks it self, check the trunk.
lock it with your key then try it out.
