Angry Roof Fault

Hi there, New girl here. Got a problem with my Boxster roof. Car is in neutral and the handbrake on. unclip the roof catch and press the roof down button. The windows lower as they should but there is no movement from the roof. Any ideas??????

Welcome to the Forum!
Is the latch pulled back all the way? I know in my car, I have had the top do the same thing. The top wouldn't move because the latch was only pulled back part of the way.
It could also be something more complicated, but I am not sure.

Hi,
Does the parking brake light on the dash light up?
Also, check for blown fuses.
What year is your car?

Regards,
mike

Emergency brake light must be on.
Push the locking lever and swing it back all the way.
Ignition must be on. The engine can be running or off.

If these don't work, check fuse, and then switch.
