Roof problems

I posted about this problem a few weeks ago but had no responses. Maybe I didnít post it correctly? I hadnít put the roof down on my SSR for a month or so, when I tried to put it down you could hear the motor running but the roof would not move. On my dashboard it said roof cycle timed out. Anybody know what my problem could be? Thanks for the help

Hi Susan,

Iíll walk you through a couple troubleshooting steps, without jumping to conclusions...... be patient, weíll get it.

When you hear the motor run, does it run long enough to unlock the lid on the roof storage compartment (also known as the tonneau cover)???? The unlocking of the tonneau cover is the first step in the process after the windows are down and is clearly heard as two ďsnapsĒ that come, one form each side, as the hydraulic actuators unlatch.

Regards,

Mike

My SSR:
My SSR is a 2004 silver one.
I had the same thing happen yesterday. I have already gone through the seal leaking, and repairs completed, so I thought I was done for a while. I tried to open the tonneau but only one side was unlocked, the pass. side. Then I tried to pull the cables behind the seat, but they didn't work either. They felt like they were disconnected. So, I don't know what to do. That tonneau needs to open to find the problem.

I have two SSR coming next Wed. to install rebuilt roof cylinders. Your welcome to come over, we will show you how to open with out using the cables. Much easier and more reliable.

One SSR is from Ocala.
