Hi there,

 

My Del sol is Japanese built registered in May 1992, I have owned the car for 8years.

 

The problem has just occurred - unable to open the boot or the roof, both of which are electrically controlled.

OK try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes both terminals then reconnect them and see if the electric roof control unit resets.Let me know.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Tried disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes, still unable to open the boot or the roof.

 

If the roof motor has failed will this prevent the boot being opened/

 

Thanks
