Hello MB World! Intro & question

Hey all,

I've been using this fab forum for a couple years to diagnose various issues with my 99 SLK230. I live in DC and love my little "Hans". He's been a wonderful car and I hope to keep him rolling forever.
Yesterday without warning a couple issues arose and I have no idea why.
first when I went to turn on the radio it read Code EJ. Being that I have no disconnected the battery, I can't imagine why the radio would suddenly require the code.
Then when I came home in the evening, the top would not come up. I turned off the engine and then turned the key back on and the top came up normally. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Xmas

Welcome to Benzworld, have your battery and charging circuit tested, if the battery drops below 12v at any time it will cause all sorts of electrical gremlins and set a lot of fault codes on the computers. When you turned the ignition off and on again you probably cleared the roof fault code which reset the system.

Thanks

Thanks Eric that helps better explain the randomness of the electrical issues. I'm getting tested today.
Cheers all!
