SOURCE: How to lower soft top manually on 1995 SL500?

It depends how much hydraulic pressure you have in the system. Take your softop tool and unlock the rear locks via trunk. see if you can raise the rear of the top (do not force because you will damage a ram). Next unlock your compartment lid and then the front of the top. You may be able to then retract it into it's storage compartment. The manual should also tell you how to release the hydraulic pressure via your pump in the trunk by your spare. hopefully I have been helpful

SOURCE: Recently started having problems with convertible

hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections

you could try resetting the system also as this may help

if its still the same after this post back and ill try and help again.

SOURCE: My 1994 Mercedes Benz SL500 radio display turns on, but no sound?

I had same problem with my 1994 SL600. Also when this happens you will lose your interior door lights when you open the doors. My problem was solved by taking out the, A-white 40 amp 12V Relay and cleaning off the 6-prongs and reinstalling. It is located in the box underhood ahead of the main fuse box. Just need a phillips screwdriver. It is the fartherest relay in back left. I had to pull the one out in front of it to be able to remove the white one. You can hear it click when you push in dooropen switch. When working right you do not hear it. Hope this helps.

Car must be on a level surface. Make sure hydraulic system is full and pistons dont leak and go from there.

I have a 2000 Mercedes SL500. Cluster is flashing 'start error' and I have a P1570 code. Engine cranks but won't start. Starter has an abbreviated spin time too


code p1570 refers to ignition switch control module/ECM-attempted theft/data bus/not compatible ===causes --wiring--connections--trouble codes stored in other system--ignition switch control module---ECM
If this is a recent problem I would suggest that the ignition switch module be checked/replaced.

2003 sl500 the right side line is leaking hydronic fluid and the top won't open


your problem is the fluid is low and doesn't have enough fluid in the pump to operate. you can add fluid at the rear underneath your spare tire. the fluid is a special blend only at mercedes benz dealer. anything else will cause the top cylinders to fail and it is very costly to repair. the fluid is about $20. It leaks because you have a leaking seal in the top cylinder. Mercedes knew this would happen this is why it leaks right in front of your face hard to ignore that huh.

Can you hear the convertible pump running at all when you hit the button. Most are hydronic. It might be low on fluid. Either that or check the relay

Rag top / convertible top motor/pump won't work. Needs fluid or motor?


most soft tops are operated with an electric wiper motor could be just a rust problem, check behind the seat or in the boot of the car, these are normally behind a panel, a little Q20 should sort it out

WHY WON'T THE CONVERTIBLE TOP MOTOR ENGAGE. WHILE DRIVING TOP BUTTON BLINKS RAPIDLY.


The top should not work above a certain speed or at all if the vehicle is moving. The top can easily rip from the wind if deployed at too fast a speed and even make the car unstabile while rolling.

Most tops will raise above the windshield height when they deploy and can fail to clear carports or drive-thru facilities. The tops can catch low hanging light fixtures or even garage door openings.
