ok i have bought a 1998 323i convertible recently shrotly afterwards the hood stopped working, no power no nothing, fuses all appear ok, sometimes i have noticed there is power but it creates a massive current draw. the vehicle is trying to operate the roof but its as if its stuck!

Then other times it goes back to no power, im suspecting the boot/trunk lid lock is involved, does anyone any pointers its weird it just didnt work one day but the intermittant power thing is strange, its a massive power drain that dims lighting and actually effects the revs as it tries to operate, yet doesnt blow any fuses!

then the next minute no power!

help please! thanks

Hood equals tonneau cover? Do you hear anything is the front motor over the windshield making noise and the latches unlatching and lifting up? I need a lot more info regarding exactly what you tried and what you heard and observed.
Most times the cause is a bumped microswitch that stops the top from operating right.
Standing by for more information...
