There is a relay thats conected to the pump in the boot if this goes it doesent open also if the relay has gone it could be because its putting the relay under strain causing it to blow this could be due to a faulty pump or lack of fluid or leaking in the system

Get a can of WD 40 spray lubricant at any auto parts store and carefully lubricate all of the moving parts of the roof system. This will likely solve your problem.

Sounds like maybe some pin switches for interlocks have gone bad. Open your trunk and look for the rubber booted switches and try holding them or shorting them, if you make the top move it shows you which ones are bad.

SOURCE: electric windows are fine the roof gets half way

If the top is half way down that means that the trunk is open and should be touching the trunk switch to continue the process. The switch must be bad and it is inside the rear right fender close the the stop light

My roof on my slk 320 doesnt shut all the way and the bad thing is it doesnt open either. its closed on the top but my back windows are still open and my trunk is not completely shut where the roof goes in...


the most common problem with those retractable hard tops are leaking hydraulic cylinders. check the insides of your trunk where the top down cylinders are located if there's a leak,and also check the level of the hydraulic fluid situated near the right brake lights.
in your slk manual, there are instructions on how to manually close the roof when the hydraulics fail.

It could be an in-line fuse, which you would need to search for, out with the fuse box. Follow the wiring as it enters the driver area, then along to towards the motor for the roof.

This symptom almost always points to a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to be lubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions and photos:

Sticking joints are the most common culprit to intermittent raising and lowering problems. Once those have been lubricated and that has been checked off the list, then consider looking into electrical issues.

The moisture from the rain may be helping to lubricate these joints and that might be why it works fine in the rain...
