convertible won't work

Sat over the winter. Battery died. Replacing shocks. Access under boot lid. Dropped top half way to access shock tower nuts. Upon closing top battery died. The top touched the windshield frame but did not latch. Bought new battery and replaced. Now top won't move...up or down. Manually latched top to close completely. Still no open. The fuse box is in German. My questions are...Which # fuse is for the pump motor. Where is the motor/pump. Is there a reset (breaker) on the motor. And yes, my trunk is closed, my boot storage is down and nothing is in the boot storage area. No yellow flashing light. Yes, red flashing light for 30 seconds then gone. Please, serious posts only. TIA

OK. My fuse legend is in German. So I went to the Wiki on this forum. Got fuse legend in English...duh. It was #46..."Verdeck Automatisch"...20amp. And yes, it was burned out. Works fine now. Wasted a days work and numerous phone calls to my BMW guy. I think he let me panick a bit. Hope someone can benefit from it. Always the simple stuff first!
