    “after reconnecting the roll bar? came up of its own volition
    Can you explain the above?

    Is your key like the one in picture?
    What lights are flashing?...Red & Green on the mirror or outside hazard / indicator lights?
    Are the lights flashing ALTERNATLEY or TOGEATHER?

    Also check the car battery cable connections and any small cables at the Positive+ terminal, ensure all are clean and tight.

    All I can suggest is disconnecting the battery and going through all the fuses methodically replacing any you have blown. If you are very lucky you have got away with a few blown fuses- Unfortunately you may have damaged some of the car's electronic units- hard to tell. You can then try reconnecting the battery the correct way round and see what still works. If you still have problems after that its a question of finding a good mechanic/auto electrician familiar with your model of car. This is important many modern MB dealers wont have the necessary experience on these older modelssuch as the R129.
