Couple of things you might want to check first before you go spending money! 1) Have you checked that the 'tightness' of the latches inside your car is good? When slack, the roof often isn't 'secure' and the latches often pick this up as they are quite sensitive. My latches tend to loosen up, and I need to shorten them in order for the clamping down action, to be sufficient tight. It should be quite a firm effort to release/secure the roof.... 2) Have you got anything in your boot which is obstructing the area where the roof folds into? These two areas will often result in the error message below disappearing.
