Hello Guys,

I've lost my connections to this SSR bible, with miracle i recover my connection today !!! :smile2:

Could someone helps me to solve my trouble !!

I have a leak on roof system and wasn't able to open the cover to check which parts of the roof system is leaking.

Is it a specific maneuver to be done in order to open this cover ??

Thanks for your help

What happens when you try?
Does nothing move then it times out with a message on the DIC?
Can you hear it trying before the timeout?
If the cover tries to move but can't, have some one try to manually lift the cover while you push the button with your foot on the brake.

If that doesn't work read this thread.

Does pump motor run? I am sure it does.

My guess, leaking lift cylinder or reservoir, out of oil.

Push "Down" button, get out, one person on each side, lift roof cover and flipper S-L-O-W-L-Y!.

With flash light driver side, look at reservoir, oil should be to GREEN DOT. Check for oil on floor.

Cylinders are 14yrs OLD!

Only designed for 10 years. Need to get rebuilt, NEW ones are NOT available.

On How to Library gives Address closes place to send them, two days turn around. Instructions on how to remove.

Thanks for your answers

xoxoxoBruce, unfortunately i have a hydraulic fluid leakage, and the first sign was that i was only able to open it with manually help. But now i've lost all the hydraulic fluid and wasn't able to open.

Dicktator, always the best to help us to solve our little SSRs problem. I'll try next week-end to open the roof compartment cover with your solution.

Oldxr, if you travel in France, no problem to meet you and took a glass of wine (or many if you prefer !!)

I'll give you results of my search.

Trouble shootin outline By Ed Borland

ROOF SWITCH FAILURE SYMPTOMS
by Ed Borland

Normal Roof Open Cycle
Ignition in “Run” or Engine Running, with the truck stopped.
Brake pressed down
Console ”Open” button pressed
The windows start to go down
The roof storage compartment cover unlatches (when the windows are down past the Indent Position).
The windows go down fully
The roof storage compartment cover opens
The roof storage compartment extension extends
The roof unlatches from the header
The roof retracts into the storage compartment
The roof storage compartment cover closes and latches
Two “Dings” indicate the open cycle is complete.

Normal Roof Close Cycle
Ignition in “Run” or Engine Running, with the truck stopped.
Brake pressed down
Console ”Close” button is pressed
The windows go down (if not already down)
The roof storage compartment unlatches
The roof storage compartment cover opens
The roof rises to the closed position
The roof is latched to the header
The roof storage compartment cover extension retracts
The roof storage compartment covers closes and latches.
Two “Dings” indicate the open cycle is complete.

Roof Switch Descriptions:
The roof system has 6 switches:
1- console switch
2 - Roof “Outer Latch Actuator” micro switches, located in the center of the windshield header.
1 - “Striker” SPDT switch, located on the left side of the windshield header.
2 - Storage Compartment latch micro switches, located in the latch assembly on each side of the storage compartment.

Open circuit tests were performed on the switches to determine the roof operation symptoms if a switch failed to close as designed.

Roof Operation Failure - Symptoms and Causes

Symptom 1. Starting with the roof closed.
The roof open cycle operates normally until the roof unlatches and the roof stops operating.
The roof does not separate from the header.
The console switch will re-close the roof fully.
DIC indication - none
Cause - Outer Latch Actuator “Latched” micro switch circuit failure.
See photo 1

Symptom 2. Starting with the roof closed.
The roof open cycle operates normally until the roof is unlatched, the roof opens a few inches and the roof stops operating.
The console switch will re-close the roof fully.
DIC indication - Roof Cycle Timeout
Cause - Striker switch “Over Center” contact circuit failure - See photo 2

Symptom 3. Starting with the roof open or closed. The storage compartment unlatches and the roof stops operating.
Cause - Storage Compartment Latch micro switch circuit failure
See photos 3 & 4

Symptom 4. Starting with the roof open.
The roof will close normally until the roof latches and the roof stops operating, leaving the roof storage compartment open.
DIC indication - Roof cycle timeout
The console switch will re-open the roof fully
Cause - Outer Latch Actuator “Released” micro switch circuit failure
See photo 1

Symptom 5. Starting with the roof open. The storage compartment is unlatched and the roof stops operating.
The console switch will re-open the roof fully.
DIC indication - none
Cause - Outer Latch Actuator “Latched” micro switch failure - See photo 1

Note: 1. Symptom 5 is the same as Symptom 3. The much more frequent cause of the failure would be symptom 3, the Storage Compartment Latch micro switch. The micro switch operating rod hangs up in the “pushed in” mode. See Photo 4
