Hi there.. same for me.. roof opend 5 cm then nothing more.. I bought an obd2 reader on the internet (20)... no error at all from neiser cvm or other...

HI there..
sio I tested continuity, ans it turns out I have no continuity on 13-14 AND on 4-5....
opened the harnest in each curve: cables are fine...
would that mean the my S145 sensor is dead... I'm not comfortable in opening the top roof front case looks like though to correctly close afterwards..
