Need some help with w208 top problem

Hi there
Long time bW member , first time in the w208 forum

I have two clk convertibles a 2002 and 2003. My 2003 was a one owner car iin mint condition but the 2002 needs some help . It wasn’t driven for years and had all kinds of electrical faults when starting it , I’ve tried to do all the “resets “ I know about such as holding window switches and ESP etc but maybe I haven’t reset everything to make the top work properly .

First problem I’d like to tackle is the convertible top, which isn’t doing anything - the red light on the top switch doesn’t even flash . I can heAr something clicking in the rear If I depress the top button downward . I hear nothing if pulling up on it .

When I manually unlatch the Top from the windshield , the 4 side windows will go down automatically , but then they will not function any more - until i turn off the car and turn it back on.

Any help appreciated ! I don’t have SDS but I do have icarsoft mbii if that helps any

Obvious thing to check would be the switch itself as it's not lighting up. I'd check the connections behind the trim panel.

Another easy check would be the sensor switch for the luggage cover in the trunk.

If it was me I'd consider switching some parts over from the good car because you know all of those are functioning correctly.
