The automatic roof works on a motor which uses power to operate. Something as simple as a blown fuse can stunt the operation. The components can also bind, which will surely bring operation to a halt and the roof can become stuck until an experienced mechanic can get inside and free it. The automatic roof often comes under a body work category where the vehicle dealer or a body/collision center must be consulted.
