Hello and welcome

You need to be not moving for the roof to work in an SLK (or slow slow as to be effectively stopped).
Sounds like you have a fault with a speed sensor of the car thinks it’s moving so won’t open the roof.

The abs,esp and esp off lights are on on the cash would this affect the opening and closing of the roof cheers Arnie.
