I had that problem with my 900 Conv. The electrical servo failed once and they replaced it with one from Mercedes Benz, no more problems. However the little sensors in the windscreen frame (where the locating pins sit) tend to get stock every so often and gave that warning. A little WD40 sorted that problem. I have a 9-3 Conv now and that has pneumatic mechanism. No problems yet.
