Dear customer, I think it would be good to start with the most basic thing which is check both relays, the one for the central locking system and the one for the roof, go to the fuse and relay box under the dash and when you activate both the central locking system and the roof you are going to hear a click from the relays that are being activated, with your hand you will detect which of these is the one that is activated and proceed to replace them. This is the first step.

Second, it is very similar but you are going to try another battery because the battery you have may not have enough energy to move the roof, you can test the battery of the other vehicle that fits without having to buy a new one.

It starts with this, which is the most basic thing.
