Hi,

This tends to indicate a failed switch/sensor in the roof system. The car uses a number of sensors to monitor the position of the roof as it opens and closes, and when one of them fails, the roof will not function. Unfortunately there is no way to guess which switch may have failed without the use of proper diagnostic equipment. The good news is it should not be an expensive fix once the offending switch is identified.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Soft top BMW is not going up or down light is flashing the trunk doesn't open without key


It sounds like there is a faulty sensor, as your trunk is not opening without the key I would suggest its your trunk/boot sensor.
As a safety feature the cars roof will not move if the trunk/boot is open.

2007 Mini Cooper convertable top will go to sunroof mode then stops will not go all the way down


Does the light start blinking when it stops? If it does it could be because the back piece in the trunk is not sitting correctly. There is a small latch that it needs to sit on and press down. If it is not sitting properly the roof will not open. I believe it is on the left hand side and it is very small and unnoticeable but that might be what is wrong

I have a 2004 mini cooper convertible. The roof opens to half way and will then flash red if i want it ti close all the way, All windows shut initally, but now when closing the roof the driver side rear...


I am not sure what you are trying to do. But if the problem is that the roof will only open to the first stage, sun roof, and no further, the problem is the package shelf in the trunk.

If the package lid gets pushed up and is not pushed back to it's normal position, the roof will fail to open completely. If you lift the bottom of the roof at the boot, there are levers on either side to release the bottom edge of the roof, you can make certain that the package shelf is seated correctly. Once the shelf is seated, the roof will open in all of it's glory.

I have a mini one convertible and i dnt no how to put the roof down can anyone help!!!!!!


No handbook??? The most important thing is that in the luggage compartment/boot/trunk there is a lever on each side. These operate a storage area for the roof to go into and when you want a larger boot space then these levers raise this area. Try operating the levers first.

Sc430 top will not go down.


Check to see that the safety cover in the trunk is properly aligned in its brackets. It must depress a switch on either side of the trunk for the roof to close.

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.

Roof on mini convertible only goes down half way


Make sure all of the microswitches are depressed in the trunk of the car. Three in all. First is on the parcel shelf holder on the left. second is on the trunk access hook left one (drivers side).Last one is the trunk switch again on the left. all three should be depressed before the top will go all the way down.

2004 Mini cooper convertible roof


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.
