Hello there,

There are many reasons for roof not operating in TS Astra.

I've fixed many customers cars with this issue working for Holden.

Could be the any of the following: front catches, roof bow tension cables, rear lid catch cables, hydraulic hoses failure, pump failure, relays, etc etc.

Preferably needs diagnosis by a Holden dealer tech.
