Randomly wont start/ soft works very slow
I have a 92' SL500. It randomly wont start. Once I jump start it, its ok for a few days and randomly it goes dead again. I replaced the battery with a new one. I am afraid to take it out, it went dead on me one day after lunch. I tried jump starting, it did not work, then after I pushed it off to a different parking spot. I came back a hour later and it just started without a problem.
Also realized after not using the soft top for a few months that it opens and closes very slow. Some times, it needs manual help to do the same.
Any ideas, I showed it to couple mechanics and they have all kinds of guesses but not a clue what it is exactly.
