Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet

Open Question

2003 audi a4 cabriolet - top won't work.

I have a 2003 Audi a4 3.0 cabriolet. It has 65,000 miles. Yesterday while retracting the top (top down) the system stopped working when it was about 80% complete through the cycle. I followed the owners manual and manually finished retracting the roof system to get home. It won't work anymore. When I press the roof button to "close" the roof - the roof light flashes in the dashboard but nothing happens. No noises, no movement. Help!

Opening/closing soft top with remote control key: To open, press button e and briefly turn the key to the right in the driver’s door lock. Then, within 2 seconds, turn the key to the right again and hold it in this position (RHD vehicles). To close, briefly turn the key to the left in the driver’s door lock. Then, within 2 seconds, turn the key to the left again and hold it in this position (RHD vehicles).Opening the soft top Pull up and hold the switch until the soft top is fully open. Closing the soft top Press and hold the switch until the soft top is completely closed. Notes: If the control switch is released during the opening/closing operation, the soft top will stop moving. The soft top is com pletely open/closed when the warning lamp in the instrument cluster goes out. The soft top can only be opened or closed when the ignition is switched on. For information on how to open/close the soft top manually please refer to the Owner’s Manual. It says:-- The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle.Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle.
If nothing is working then check the switch which you depress to open/close the roof.remove the switch and check the voltage.If its no voltage then the switch is faulty and that needs to be replaced.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

If you are having trouble w/ the top. Check to make sure the central locking system is working properly. Also as on my Cabri, try locking the trunk 1st. Hope this helps

The retractible roof wont retract.


Try locking your trunk lock with the key and try the top again. The top is interlocked with the trunk latch and sometimes locking the ltrunk will clear the troible.

Rear lid (houses top), opens only 1/4, stops, hums, and prevents roof from retracting in storage beneath lid.


As noted in one of the earlier questions on the topic, it appears (will verify for certain after the pump is removed) the plastic resevoir tank has cracked and the hydraulic fluid was lost. Leakage was visible in trunk once spare tire removed.
Audi also noted this is not unusual for a vehicle this age, and the replacement tank is a $100 kit.

How to replace a dipstick funnel on a 2003 Audi A4


There's a metal bracket that the plastic tube clips to at the top. The 2 little tabs on each side clip it to the bracket. once u unclip it, it "should" pull straight up. The one I did yesterday broke into a bunch of pieces. I had to break it off and pry the last bit off with a prybar. the new one snaps right down on.
