convert top system not operating on SL

my 1997 SL320, after storage and charging the battery the convertable top button and rollbar switch stay lit but will not function. i reset the windows and checked the fuses.. i removed the hardtop and raised the softtop manually to see of a relay was stuck.. still the same. upon activating the button i hear a pump or motor sound for a few seconds but nothing happens. could this be a 'low fluid' or a code issue?

Welcome to Benzworld!! Sorry to hear youre having issues with your Benz. you can try using the search part of the forums to see if someone may have had a similar issue and resolved it, or you can post your question directly in the R129 section of the forums. I'm sure one of the members in that section would be glad to help!

Yes Honey! Thats how they sound! Its a diesel!
