Have you tried a convertible top installation co?

Did you check; the switches, fuses, is the luggage cover pulled out?

What is wrong with it?

Did you do a search here? This is a common topic.

What code did you get? Post it.

Thanks STU,
during my endeless search on the internet, i came across a guy called Frenchie,based in Fulham (frenchman) He specailises on softop problems, I drove there this morning and left the car with him, he has the BOSCH diagnostic thingymagicggy, even though i left with a copy of the one merc gave me, he insist on running his machine on my car. He is quite tied up now so he will call me next week hopefully with good news. By the way today is my Birthday and it would have been nice to go out tonight, but i guess not! so am stuck home. Anyways

Designo Copper I believe. A friend who sold me my Bahama Blue car got a Designo Copper Brabus shortly after. Looks the same color. That's an expensive body color btw as it is rare [;)]

Happy birthday

Hi Mark !!
First of all, happy birthday !! sadly i don't have internet access over the weekend, so have only just seen your post. I was actually in central London on Saturday night having a few beers, so you could have joined. Lets hope the Frenchman can solve your roof problem. I believe the offical name for the colour of your SLK is "Firemist"... or so i've been told. I'm gonna be in Cardiff next weekend, (FA Cup semi-final), have a ticket for the game !! but we should meet up soon.

RE: Happy birthday

Thanks Blue BEnz,
I am still awaiting a response from the Electrician, but he told me he is making good progress, so my fingers are still tightly crossed
