Where is the trunk wiring harness access for the oem trunk mounted cd changer?

I turned on the car and the battery light came on. As I drove down the street, the car would not shift. After 10 of the car being on, the light went off & then the car drove fine. Confusing...

I just replaced the hydraulic lock mechanism for soft top . Put it all back together the way it was before .

Wiper fluid spraying out of headlights. Then a loud screeching sound started but when headlights turned off stopped. Screeched when turned back on. Just happened so not sure how to handle.

my soft top won't go down when I pull the button back and my right window stopped working at the same time, is there a common fuse that they have and would they be related?

I replaced the batteries in the key farb (or whatever it is called). Occassionally when I press the button the lights go on Red or Green on the door. However it is not consistent. Is there anyone that has a solution that I can try. It is not the end of the world but I would like to use the security system in the car. Thank you for any suggestions.

Would a fuse cause this problem? Do you think a battery reset would work?

the rollbar is stuck in the up position is there a way to manually lower it

battery went dead I syncronized they window work the first time every thing was fine till my wife left the lights and the new battery went dead again now the windows drop just a tiny bit as you open the door. like they are supposed too but the rollbar and top I can get to work again. I did not jump start the car I put a charger on it for about an hour. any ideas how the fix it.. thanks for any suggestions

light is out on the radio display how do I put a new bulb in

Also the radio needs a code start and the power windows used to adjust slightly when the car shut off.

driving away from the body shop every time I used my turn signal the instrument cluster would light up with error codes.
I took the car back immediately and was told the wiring under the passenger seat was fried? Is this just a coincidence or did the body shop do something to the car? They had to remove the hardtop to install the window.

I never had an issues with the instrument cluster prior to this.

I just purchased this low mileage(~49,000 miles)SL320 and noticed that the top control button was on and the soft top, roll bar, radio did not work. The dealer told me they would look into it and what they found was some "codes that had to be reset"; this seemed to take care of the problems. The car sat in my garage for two days and when I tried to start it everything was dead. Figuring it was a dead battery, I jumped it, started the car and noticed that the same problems, as I found at the dealership, had returned: the radio, the top button is lit, the roll bar does not work. Is this typical when a battery is jumped or changed? Am I doing something wrong? I have the code for the radio but, I have no idea what to do for the top, roll bar and any other functions that might be nonfunctional. Thank you for your time.
