Just got 98 se turbo convertible with 80,000 miles two weeks ago, love the car but trying to figure out the roof, got it for $2000 because roof didnt funtion but seller told me it could be done manually but come to find out thats not totally true. At first it didnt do anything changed some fuses,put reinforcement kit,changed 5th bow motor and have it to where it will lower itself but slows down when doing final step and when raising tonneau opens,5th bow raises and when soft top raises it goes up about 20 inches then get soft top message and it goes back down. I live about 4 hours from a saab dealer,so would like to trouble shoot as much as possible before i make the trip,please,please help someone must know whats wrong and i need to get my wife of my back.

Hey guys u2 seem to know quite alot about this stuff,well today spent 10 hours going to ron carter saab in houston,one of the latches was loose so got message the whole way there but figured i would let them fix it.well after 3 hours dealer called said mechanic needed to talk to me,he said needed a new ecm he couldnt communicate with it,with tech2. When talking to him he never even knew what the tonneau motor was called yet mgr said hes been working on saab for 23 years.do u think he could be right if ecm was bad would i still get error messages.What made me upset was he never looked at one mechanism not even the ecm,what yall think please help next closest saab dealer is 4 hours away thanks.

thanks for reply i have tried that,quick question does the tonneau motor only control the tonneau or is it involved in the rest of the roof movement.
