2000 slk230 roof problem

Hi My name is Marcel de Man and I'm a newbie on this forum.
Hope someone can help me with the roof problem I'm having. If I try to open the roof the red light starts blinking. When I reset the computer(disconnect the battery) I can open the roof. Then when I want to close it the same thing happens. Again I have to reset the computer to get it working.

Any suggestions.

Thanks
Marcel

Had an interesting development with my roof not working. Last week my car just quit while waiting for a traffic light. Engine light and triangular light came on. Couldn't start the car for about 10 minutes. When I finally got home I got the error codes. I did a search on this forum and was directed to the K40 relay problem. Fixed the relay and the car runs great after this and further i don't understand why but as a bonus my roof problem went away as well.

I love this forum,
Thanks all of you sharing your problems and solutions.

Marcel
