Well I will be taking my 500SL at World Class Auto on Thursday to clear the codes...hoping my Roof Control will work after that.
I was told by another recommendation on this site (name escapes me, have it written down at home) that because everything else the roof controller 'controls' it's very likely not damaged. They told me that because it sees an error code it might not allow the roof to UNLOCK and the soft top to OPERATE at all. If after clearing the error codes it still doesn't work, that it's the last resort to send it to them to repair. I was very happy of their honesty and would have been choked to remove it, ship it to Florida and pay for bench test only to discover it all fine.
The roof controller controls windows, roll bar and all the roof operations. Roll Bar still works, Windows still work and Hardtop will Lock.
