Good possibility they might be right but it could be a number of things going on that's not letting your roof work. Do you have a hydraulic leak, low on fluid, dirty switches, loose wire, etc etc. Look at Dicktators Library he just about covers everything for these trucks.
I suggest you tell us just whats going on when you try and put the roof down from start to finish this might help to narrow down your problem and someone will chime in and tell you what it might be.

Uli @Spargeltarzan, zuerst möchte ich dir sagen, Willkommen im Forum; Ihre SSR ist absolut schön! Bitte folgen Sie den obigen Links (post #5) zur Dicktator-Bibliothek. Dort finden Sie viele Antworten auf Ihre Fragen. Sobald Ihre SSR zu 100% zurück ist, müssen Sie @Ruckzuck kontaktieren, um herauszufinden, wann das nächste Treffen der SSR-Eigentümer in Deutschland stattfinden wird. Hoffe, die Informationen werden helfen. Freut mich, dich in der Familie zu haben !!

Hmm... Asparagus Tarzan, cool name.:cheers
Not questioning the ability of your mechanics, but I wonder if the RDM (roof door module) is not putting out the right instructions because it’s not receiving the right signals.

Dicktator’s collection of instructions has several pieces on the roof operation.

Here is the basics of the operation.

This will show you many threads from people who had trouble with the roof and how it was solved.

I'd strongly suggest you contact Dinerman and get the ultimate drive.

Good luck and please be sure to keep us posted on what you find and how you fixed it.

Hello Uli,

I am happy to welcome you here with the fanatics. You will learn everything about your truck here.
Your SSR has a great paint Job. I founded a group in Germany with a few other friends.( meanwhile 34 Chevy SSR friends ) We are in regular contact via whats app. At the start of the season we held the biggest SSR meeting in Germany so far. You can find a post among canada and other countries I wish you a big Permagrin on all your rides.

Hallo Uli,

Ich freue mich, dich hier mit den Fanatikern begrüßen zu dürfen. Hier erfährst du alles über deinen Truck.
Dein SSR hat eine tolle Lackierung. Ich habe mit ein paar anderen Entusiasten eine Gruppe in Deutschland gegründet (mittlerweile 34 Chevy SSR-Freunde). Wir stehen über Whats App in regelmäßigem Kontakt. Zu Beginn der Saison haben wir das bisher größte SSR-Treffen in Deutschland abgehalten. du kannst einen Beitrag unter Kanada und anderen Ländern finden. Ich wünsche dir ein großes Permagrin ( Dauergrinsen ) auf all deinen Fahrten.


Roman

Welcome too the Group, from Friendswood, Texas. Love the colors of Your R, it looks pretty good. Like everyone says, best bet is too read up on the Forum and also contact Dinerman about the Ultimate Drive. It has the Manuals for the 03-06 models, and loads of information too assist in trouble shooting your problems. I am sure Others on here will jump in that have more Technical abilities on Our rides and help work You through Your issues. Again, Welcome .

Hey, welcome to our forum

This is going to sound very weird but I have an issue with "The Fatherland"
To me, this was Hitler's interpretation of his perfect Germany

I am not Jewish, not that that should matter - it was our worst time in the past century.

I'm just not sure where "the Fatherland suits your avatar

I am probably going to catch some hell over this but what the heck!
I catch crap all the time! HaHa!

Cash, the translation from Deutschland (Germany) to English is "the fatherland". "Tarzan", welcome from Springfield MO. Very important for the truck to be on level ground for the switches to detect present location of the top, windows, covers, tailgate,etc.
