Question about BMW Z3

Open Question

Hello my 1999 BMW z3 roadster's top will not go up or down but sometimes it will work but stop halfway up or halfway down. The wiring cable harness on the drivers side looks a little worn out that goes to the micro switch near the front of the top. It was working fine until a few days ago and I can't find anyone in town that fixes this problem and I don't even want to know how much the BMW dealership will want to charge. If you can help in any way this would be amazing!!!

There is a spray product that I used a long time ago to remove the vinyl letters off a boat. It worked great just can't remember the name. Check with an auto paint supplyer.

This is a problem with your wiring harness near the cab/trunk line. I've been trying to diagnose my faulty top (looks like all mine is sensor problems) and I came accross this problem many times on bimmerfourms.com There is lots of useful information there.

first you need to pull the top back untill it flips up, then you have to have your foot on the brake for the electronics to kick in when you push the button.

How can i get the code for the radio "BMW Z3 1997 Roadster"???


unfortunatly you will need to go to the dealer. Make sure you write it down when they give it to you. only other option you have is to replace the factory stereo with an aftermarket one. some people prefer this as they can get better features sometimes.

There are a couple of relay switches in the side of the top on the driver's side. One of these is not working. Your break lights are out because of this too. You have to apply the brake to lower or raise the top.
