Asked by Nov 07, 2014 at 06:56 PM about the 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK 320 Convertible

Had a friend borrow my car and didn't know he had to release lever before trying to put down top. Now the power windows will go down when attempting to put down top, but once windows go down the convertible top switch flashes and nothing happens...Any ideas ?

Check fuse,s,,and it is possible,that when your friend,did not unlatch the top,he damaged the motor.

Try having it reset,,,, If it does not do anything, maybe ur friend might have burned the motor that lifts the top !

try doing it again w/ the right sequence on how to kift up the top, it might reset by itself ! U need to open wide all doors, windows down before u release it thru your latch then try lifting up switch ! I know it does not broke (motor) easily ! Who knows, u might get lucky ! Thats wat happened w/ mine ! Good luck !

Was able to get it repaired by reversing the procedure of manually putting the top down. When doing so heard a double click that was for rear hatch cover locking back into place. Works perfect now...Appreciate all the ideas and input.

Thank you for the info I just save myself 1,400.00 because Mercedes wanted to replace the switch. I told the mechanic to put the top down manually until it Clicks and there you go it works.
