Ah well, I knew it would happen eventually.
99 clk roof sometimes refuses to shut, red lamp flashes seemingly indicating boot is open or luggage cover is not in place...but both are ok. Anyway, if I spend enough time messing around with things open/close this or that it eventually wakes up. So I guess there is a problem with a switch somewhere, can anyone point me to where they are or make any other suggestions?

Thanks
Jon

When the flap opens to allow the roof to fold in there is a loom that runs in the right hand side hinge. Its common for the wires to break over time. Well worth a look!

Agh, it's a lot more serious........
Driving along I thought ....'I wonder if the qheadrests in the back have anything to do with it' so i raised them using the switch thou...'hmm that's a funny Grau Ching noise' . Now they won't go back down and when I look around the back of the roof see that the 'side bits' xthat go up and down when raising/lowering the roof are stuck in the wrong place burried inside the boot.
Now nothing moves or flashes at all....
Suggestions please?.....guess it's off the the local indie...
