Brought car in for oil change and front brake job. Was told it needed 60k engine which it didn’t. Car has 50k miles on it and I’ve had no problems. When I picked up car the convertible top was not working, Making noise and and light will not go off and all of sudden I was told one of hydraulics doesn’t work. Could this have been caused during maintenance service that wasn’t needed in the first place?
What should I tell them?
I managed to open the hood as per instruction. I tried to jump start my car but failed . ( using jumper cable connect to a infinity G37x) No clicking at all, just dead.
Also status showing steering wheel locked.
I think I need a new battery but why there is no Clicking sound when I jump start the car?

dead battery. followed manual directions for using jumper cables to power up the small interior switch to open front hood. Problem: when hook cables to fuse box connection and striker plate the alarm goes off. Followed manual for turning off alarm, by manually locking and then unlocking the driver door, but it is failing to turn off alarm. So alarm is sounding off and the electrical release switch is not responding since car is technically still "locked". Any ideas? thanks. John
Trying to remove dash panels to get to headlight wire. Procedure showed removing ignition trim and nut. Nut was stuck, so damaged when trying to remove. Gives ignition fault now. If I order new switch, what happens with keys? Do I have to get them recoded by the dealer to work on new ignotion switch?
