Dear colleagues,
I am currently experiencing an irritating malfunction of my convertible roof.

The problem is as follows:
The buttons for manual operation are not working at all and there are two saved errors in the fault memory (see below)

The automatic operation does work, but the top stops approximately in the middle of operation. I have checked all the microswitches and they seem to work fine.
Do you have any idea where to start solving the issue? Which hook is meant here - and does the timeout suggest that it is not connected at all?

Best
Mariusz

They refuse to send outside of the UK though, if that would be relevant.
I got one from 'Lorenz-6mt' at the Maseratilife forum, at a higher cost.

To test if it was the problem, I just used a short bungee cord between the two bars. This confirmed the problem till I remembered a similar problem with a MGF. I would think that it would not be hard to get some Velcro elastic webbing made up If if you cannot get the MG ones.
