Is this a sign of a faulty SmartTop?
A member came by yesterday from San Diego to have the SmartTop v.3.xx installed. The install was routine usiing OEM fuseholder; the InstallAid LED blinked 1 per second, and the roof operated fine the first time. A few moments later, roof error message came up on the MFD and the InstallAid LED was not flashing. LED remained off even aftur turning key to position 1 or 2.
Connections were rechecked, removed the ground connection and LED lighted 1 per second. Roof operated fine again using remote key, but after that, the module stopped working and the LED light was off again. It seems like something in the module turning off afte the first complete cycle -- close and then retract the roof.
SmartTop was removed and I tried supplying external power using a 12V DC source, the LED flashed once and then remained off.
Any thoughts or comments welcome.
The SmartTop was removed and the I asked the member to email Stefan at mods4cars or maybe get an exchange from SLKstore. I've asked him to return anytime for another attempt at SmartTop install, at least he knows the steps involved.
