    I still have no reset key to give that a go but am trying to track one down.

    I have plugged the diagnostics prog in today (trial version) and after clearing the codes, there is only one code that re-appears 1 Fault Found: 01997 - Convertible Top Locking Motor (V223)
    011 - Open Circuit
    I've also noticed that when I operate the hood button, that there is a low purring/arcing sound which is coming from behind the o/s speaker panel area? It only sounds for a second and I also get the flashing light on the dash, but no message.

    Any help would be appreciated, i guess the first place to start is to try a reset and if that fails then look into a failed roof motor. As another clue, the windows don't drop in readiness :(

    I may be telling you somthing you already know but the handle is hidden away inside the dash. In the hand book it shows the handle behind the left side pannel but on the uk cars it is behind the right had side pannel. It is red and you turn it clockwise to release it. again you may have already looked here but just incase....

    That person selling the tool on ebay has really bumped the price up, the one I bought from him was £25 including £10 postage rip-off!
