    roof not opening

    HI THERE, Summer has arrived in Glasgow!!!!! guess what my roof has decided not to work!!!! i now have an A4 nonvertible sorry convertible. i used the roof the day before and everything was fine,however this morning i jumped in to the car sun shining pressed the roof button.... no lights on dash or anything (is the switch broken). I used the tool to manually open the roof pushed it open and the roof will close automatically using the switch. Any ideas / suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks for reading.

    The weather forecast is for rain tomorrow i believe so no rush

    Spot on! Used a voltage meter to check the switch for continuity. I then worked out what wires were what then bridged the wires with a staple hey presto the roof opened. I then stripped the switch and one of the metal contacts had moved, re-aligned them refitted all parts and now works fine up and down. Quote for new switch was 35+ so im well chuffed . If it breaks again i will use the staple permanently HA HA . Thanks. SUN IS SHINING, ROOF DOWN AND HOPE TO GET STUCK IN TRAFIC TO TOP UP THE TAN
