Post top alarm sounds on my sl-320 hardtop

Hello all I am a newbie so bare with me. I started out in the land of benz's with a 500-sec,then a 300-ce,a 380-sl, a 300-sl and now my fav. a 320-sl that has a full lorinser body kit, wheels, and exhaust, very nice not to boy racer. At 160,000. miles she is on her orig. wiring harness---that is luck! The problem I am having is with the top alarm on the hartop. Everytime I go over a tar strip,pothole, a hard turn. The "button" lights up and the alarm dings 4-times unless you bump the buttom forward. I went our our local MB-dealer (since1959)--they could not fix it. They just scratched their heads and charged me 115. The best indy tried to get it to act up and could not. I read all the stickies on "top" topics---no find a cure. I have taken the top on and off a few times. replugged the top brain box and sprayed the contacts with a elec. contact spray but nofix of issue.The top is on tighton all four corners, all soft and hardtop functions work. New front top cyl. last June, hyd,. fluid is full. I trust the experts on this forum and would appreciate your input.
