2001 BMW Z3 Repair Question
Convertable top not working. How do I reset the drive and what does that mean?
might be position sensor switch in top?It is located on the driver's side top bow near the 1st hinge (from the windshield) behind the cover that has two screws. The wires from it run to a connector that is located just aft of the driver's door, under/beneath the rubber padding that hides the mounting points/pivot for the top frame. If you open the driver's door, stand beside the seat, facing rearward, look at rear sill (where the door lock catch is) follow that up until you find the rubber cover, remove the rubber cover and there is the top connector. If you unplug the connector and put a jumper in it, and your top works it's your top switch. be very careful if you decide to leave the jumper in place.
have you operated it manually since it quit?
was the top up or down when it decided not to work?
If I can be of any help, let me know.
