Can someone help yet? I am having this issue with my 2006 SL500. Can't put the top down because car thinks the trunk is open and it isnt.HELP!
My 500SL top won't go up because it thinks the trunk is open... Is there something (Battery...?) that I need to reset? I am getting a 'trunk open' message in the information center.
We tried that..lol..still a no go. So I can't put the top down and when I drives it tells me to close the trunk lid, its closed and latched though!Slam it shut! Mine was doing that.. So I just closed it hard a few times and the top worked fine hahaha. Make sure the red light on the door is off. It should work then. My soft close feature is also broken
Thank you! We tried some fuses..Ill make sure we try fuse 71 to make sure. This is sooo frustrating!You have a bad latch. It's likely leaking from cracks in the plastic housing where the pneumatic system operates. Sometimes what happens is the leak causes the PSE pump to run continuously so it shuts down the trunk circuit. If this happens, the mechanical part of the latch will work, but the pneumatic pull-down won't function. You may be able to get it working by pulling the fuse for the PSE pump to reset it. It's fuse 71 on the rear panel. If that does get it working, you need to replace of fix the latch. If you want to DIY, you can seal it with epoxy. Also, if the diaphragm is leaking, it can be sealed with epoxy or you may be able to fashion zip ties to hold it together as I did (ignore the bailing wire and solder - that fixes another issue):
