"Retractable roof operation only at standstill" error message

I am receiving a "Retractable roof operation only at standstill" error message in the message window while my 2008 SLK350 is sitting in the garage! At the same time my ABS light lite up on the dash. I have replaced the front left (driver's side) wheel speed sensor to no avail. Any ideas?

Yes . . . over an hour yesterday. Would unhooking the battery help?

Yes, the trunk luggage cover is signaling closed from the iCarSoft MB II scanner. What I did notice from the scanner is that the 'Hydraulic "CLOSE" won't register ACTUATED when the button to open/close the top is pushed forward to close the roof. Even in the top down position the 'Hydraulic "OPEN" registers ACTUATED when it is pushed down to open the roof even though the roof is in the open position. Does that make sense?

There is the problem to all. The system can not tell if the car is moving or not so it will not let the roof open. You may have other wheel speed sensors not working. Do you have access to the Star SDS system. It will drill down much deeper than the iCarSoft system can. Once the wheel sensor is replaced the fult may need to be cleared and sometime that will require the Star SDS system to clear it.

I don't have access to a Star SDS system, only the iCarSoft MBII. Having said that, is the Mercedes dealer my only other option?

Independents with a focus on MB should have it also. Call and ask what they use. Does your scanner show any faults for the wheel sensor(s)?

I found a description online for C1100 Left Front Axle Vehicle Speed Sensor Circuit Fault but couldn't clear it with the iCarSoft MB II because it said it wasn't found in the data base.

I think you are going to need a shop that has Star to dig into it.

Can your scanner examine the actual values from the traction control module? If so, have each wheel up and spin it by hand and see what values are shown for wheel speed.

I believe the scanner shows me 0 mph per wheel on the read out but I'll go back in and check. I'll try the 'spinning wheel' tip to see if values change.

I disconnected the negative terminal from the battery for 45 minutes with no change in errors. Battery is showing 12.45 V cold and 14.19 V when running. I turned on the headlights and fan on high and it only dipped to 14.12 so I believe the battery is doing its job.

IIRC, the actual values in the *roof module* will also show you what the roof module has learned about the speed via CAN. That might be helpful. In fact, it would be a good idea to post all the actual values from your roof module here. This is the first time on this site I've seen this message, It's possible that something was lost in translation in MB-land.
