Battery replacement costs

That sounds quite high. Have you tried stores such as Batteries Plus, Auto Zone, etc.? They will most likely have what you need and most install them for you.

On my 1998 mercedes benz sl600 i cant get the convertable top to open. i have replaced two of the struts for the roof and now my roof wont open. is there a way to resync the roof or am i just doing so

The top is controlled by you guessed it a computer module, have the dealer test that with a scan tool. The top is very complex in the control end, not simple like the old Mustangs I used to fix

The top on you car is not completely folded back, once the roof appears to be seated keep holding the open button until you hear another click, If this doesn't work it means the roof parked sensor is not working which unfortunately will mean a trip to the dealer.

You are right 2 keys are needed to reset the system. or of course the dealer will be able to cut you a new key and program it. You really should have 2 keys for the car anyway.

It is too much. The cost is high since it is at dealer. Go to an independent shop it will cost about $2400 with an old engine (50K miles) plus labor (labor costs around $750) with one year warranty.

Audi Convertible Roof broken

i can,t see why all these should need to be replaced,you need to get a more detailed report of what exactly they want to replace and for what reason in my experience dealerships dealing with roof faults will replace parts one by one untill the problem is fixed and surely the dealer should cover the cost of the repair if the roof faulted after only 3 weeks
