S15 Varietta roof problem

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

 

I need some advices on my friends Varietta. The roof won´t open, there´s just a flashing roof light when pressing the switch.

Are there any fuses to check? Any sensors? Where can I find them?

Maybe a wiring diagram?

 

Thanks in advance!

There's like 3 limit switches in the boot area. Best start pulling all the rear interior out.

Never worked on a varietta before but would like to think it works on a simalar principal as a lot of other convertibles.

First thing first is check fuses in car

Next try and open the boot normally if you can as some cars won't let you

Once in the boot they normally have a hydrolic oil resovoir. Check that that's not empty or low

There will usually be 4-6 switches in the boot inspect these to make sure the plugs are on the back still and if you know how, do a continuity test of the switch

In saying all this the last vert problem I had to fix was a coil Spring and a pin had come off on the passenger side mechanism and was causing the roof to only release on one side. That was why we had the flashing light last time

Hope your able to use some of this info

 

Just a pm away if you need anything else

Thanks guys!

 

I found the fuse, it´s ok.

Also found the 3 limit switches.

Measured them, normally closed contacts, they are working properly.
