Over the weekend I bought a 1999 slk230 sport. I pulled back on the console switch and the quarter windows went down and nothing else happened. Then the vario top did not operate and the console switch either stayed on if the car was running or it would blink slowly. I do not know if the trunk lid was lartched or not or if it released when the windows went down. I took out the inside trunk covers and found two switches that were not in place. I replaced them and put on a touch of silicon to hold them there and re-assembled everything. The trunk latches are still not actuating. I assume they are spring loaded for closure and mechanically released for opening. The latches seem to be held open. The manual cables are slack. What gives?
