Sorry for the language confusion and late reply, I forget that lots of people who speak English don't actually speak 'The Queens English'... Lol!
So, where were we? I have been trying to fix the 'convertible top' on my E36, so far I have tested the two motors in the boot (trunk) and they work, as does the switch, this is what happens, when I go through the standard procedure of pulling the lever under the back seat, lower the 'top' manually, hold the horseshoe down to open the boot, reset the two motors, then hold the roof switch in the 'up' position and twist the key to position 1 and hold for 12 seconds ( there is a tutorial online that I followed), once all of that is done (with the roof switch still being held in the up position) the horseshoe lowers into place as it should but does not come back up after a few seconds and raise the roof. Does anyone have any ideas? Where should I look next for the fault?
