So, here's how it went. I started the car and let it idle for a few minutes. Then I pulled up on the switch and I hear the pump running. I let it run for 15 seconds. No movement. I checked the fluid level. It's gone down a bit but still between the arrows. I then let it rest for 1 minute and pulled the switch again for 15 seconds and the pump runs again. Still no movement. The fluid level is now below the arrows so I put enough in to get it between the arrows. I let it rest for another minute. Pulled the switch again and after 8 seconds, the roof starts moving and I run it through the entire process. WOO HOO!! It works! I run to get my wife and then all of a sudden I hear what sounds like a high pressure hose letting loose. I run back to the car and fluid is shooting out from behind the drivers front wheel area. WTF??? I shut the car off. It appears something with the ABC is now broken. But that goes in a different thread. Back to the top.
I check the fluid level again and it is at the bottom arrow. I put more in to bring it up to between the arrows. I then turned the ignition switch to the on position and attempt to close the roof. Nothing. No pump noise, top moving, nothing. Hmmm. I check all the fuses associated with the roof (f62, f63, f69, f73 and f74) and all are good. I have not checked for any codes. I do not have SDS and I have to figure out how to manually move the flaps back so I can manually close the top. I have pulled the relay and I'm gonna see if I can figure out how to test it (any help on this would be appreciated).
UPDATE: The relay is good. Thanks YouTube!
UPDATE: Found the process to close the flaps ... Will try this in the morning. Thanks BenzBits!!
Any ideas where I should be looking for the problem?
Again, Thanks for any tips, tricks and even replies!
