I found this on a MB forum, maybe it will help..........."my mechanic found out that the resistor in the speedometer cluster went bad and what that does is it will not allow you to raise or lower the top and the light would just blink. I put it in and the top goes up and down with no problems."

do you know the value of the resister and where this resister fits in the speedometer cluster?

1996 SL320R no movement in the soft top result, the mechanic discovered that ABS/ASR LRear wires were damaged, rewired black/red and the fault signal immediately disappeared, the soft top is functional once again.
