A4 Cabriolet smartTOP Remote roof top control
So I've finally connected the smartTOP module to my car. And it works exactly as described without and glitches. :) Basically I can control the roof up or down by the original Audi remote - as well as just controlling all the windows (or a combination of the two!).
I can operate the roof up to 25mph!!! (not 5mph) But have only dared to at 18mph so far.
I don't have to hold the buton to operate the roof - I can just press it once.
I can start the roof to close - then stop the engine, get out, and leave it to close and lock up while I walk away!
It was a about a week ago - there wasn't a cloud in the sky so I thought it would be a good time to have the roof down for a short time to install. Started at 2.30pm & by 3.30pm it started to spit with rain! Typical! Managed to finish off 15 mins later - just as I got the roof back up and closed it, poured down!
For anyone who may be interested in the mod:
The instructions are quite thorough. The tricky part was getting the side panel off, (it would help to have someone help at this point to just hold the back seat away from the side panel while you remove it).
Locating the coloured wires and fitting to the connectors was quite clear (if you take your time).
Once connected - all went back together and can be custom set via the roof button and indicators.
