Okay, few questions. Is the red light the one on the center console? If so that is for the roof. If so, it could be one of the micro switches have failed. Can you raise and lower the top? Shoot us some answers and we can go a little farther down the diagnostic tree.

Just to be sure we are talking alarm and not roof.


The roof switch is by the handbrake. Flashing means a roof error.


If it is the alarm, is it only flashing whilst moving?

I gotta say, this is a little tiresome. OP (usually a new member) posts a question. People respond in an attempt to help. OP goes silent.
