Hello everyone I'm new to the Mercedes world... I've been working on my project during this pandemic. I'm having a few minor issues I'm sure the group can help me resolve.

1st issue is the soft. I installed a new top and rebuilt all hydraulics the top worked perfectly fine with the rebuilt cylinders and the old top but now that I installed the new top the system will start to close until the top front section touches the front cylinders above the visors then stops and wont latch. I found out that if I bump the white switch quickly (in photo below) the top will lock in the front and finish completely. Opening the top it has no issues now I notice the buzzer going off for a few seconds and the light flashing non stop while driving.

2nd is the roll bar will activate during a hard acceleration or nasty bumps.

Thanks in advance for your input.

disconnect battery ,reconnect it , reset the windows and any abs lights then try the top and roll bar function. Also make sure the hydraulic fluid is clean and at max line
