Mein Auto: 98 M3
e36 98 m3 convertible top problem

I searched around but did not find the exact steps to diagonize a convertible top problem.

I have a 98 m3 convertible and the top stopped working suddenly. I did not try using it after last summer and now that the weather is improving, tried to press the button and it does not work. Oops!

1. The red led does not blink when pressing the button
2. No motor sound
2. Windows does not automatically go down

Here is what I tried so far:
1. Replaced fuse 7 under the hood
2. Replaced fuse 49 in the trunk next to battery

Both did not help.

Another problem: the previous owner broke something in the center on the top which is used to manually operate the top when closed. Now I don't know how to manually reset the motor (if that will help)

Please help.
