I see no mention in your remarks of what message appears in your Driver Information Center (DIC) when you are trying to open the top and it stops. That information will be very helpful in diagnosis of your issue. What does it say?
It says roof cycle time out . the pump runs & unlocks the back cover than stops. I have checked both micro switches & they both work . just found a chafed wire under one of the clips .fixed it the result is the same pump runs unlocks back lid & stops
Thanks for the help on my SSR . Found a chaffed wire & connector that wasn`t all the way in .Broke the plastic tabs off the motor it the header. took a mending plate cut it down to fit inside the clip .bent the end over clip slightly .use a bolt 5mm longer & done . Thanks again Drew
