The vehicle went I for a service recently, following the service the operation of the roof failed at the point of closing the roof cover, the mechanic kept the car for two further trying to diagnose the problem but failed. So I still have a car where the roof will not operate correctly and am now at the end of my tether. The roof starts opening normally but once the roof folds into the roof space it stop slightly short and the roof top will not close and lock; after 30 secs or so I can lift the roof out about half way over the car and then close it fully, this happens every time. Please help.
Sometimes the car will not start and a message appeared that "anti-theft device needs a service". I have tried both keys and eventually the key is recognised and the car will start

Car is not running rough idling or accelerating. Hearing a slight tap noise when idling but doesn't sound like it's in the motor. Car doesn't stall at any speed.
I really like this car and I enjoyed doing repairs on it. But I am moving and I cannot keep it. It has a few issues that I am sure can be fixed. It is most certainly good for parts. The body is in good condition and except for the driver seat the interior is good also. Its kind of loud and leaks coolant and reverse does not work. I started to replace the brakes but I had leave it to deal with other life issues. I hate to send to the junkyard when it could, at least, be a donor.
Sid displays steering wheel lock engaged. The key stays in the locked position.
My tachometer doesn’t work it just goes wherever it wants. My speedometer doesn’t go lower than 7 mph even when the car is stopped and in park and my turbo meter only goes about a quarter of the way down. Could it be an electrical issue and if so which fuse controls these? Also the lock button on the inside of the drivers door only works when the door is closed.
Only when the A/C is turned on, is there a squeak under the hood. Is it possible the squeak is from a belt? Not sure but it is coming from the middle of the engine area near the belts. What needs to be done to stop the squeak?
The squeak just started a couple days ago. It is coming from the center of the engine area under the hood. Is there an A/C belt that might be the problem? How soon should the squeak be fixed?

I am getting a steering lock malfuntion when it put the key in the ignition and it will not turn at all. I have replaced the ignition switch the battery and the key fob battery with no results. I also disconnected the fuse and reconnected it because i read that would reset it but again no results. What could it be?
