Hi to all, I hope somebody can help me as this is driving me mad!!
I have recently bought an e36 convertible with fully automatic roof, brilliant but the roof doesnt work at all!!. I have checked the motors 1 by 1 to see if they operate if i put power to them and they are all fine. I have checked the micro switches which all seem fine too!!!!. I have done the reset procedure which when that is done all I get is a clicking noise from n/s/f behind glovebox (no motor operation) and all the windows go down in stages but no motor noise what-so-ever, the rear tourneau cover doesnt even lock down as it says in the manual that has been posted before??? I have today checked the wiring that I could find and didnt see any obvious damage, I have taken the roof control module appart to check the circuit board and have found that a little black box on the circuit board has burnt out and opened up...... Does anyone know what the box is for and whether it is going to be the root of the problem or is it just an aftermath. I dont want to buy another control module only to burn another one out. I appreciate all your help
