Can anyone out there help please, I cannot open roof storage lid on my daughters KA Convertible, normally I would press the button on the driver’s side door frame and that would open the lid to store the roof, but now when I press that button it does not open.
I can open the lid manually from inside the boot, so mechanically everything works, but if you store the roof it blocks access to the mechanism, so you can't open the lid to get the roof back up.
I think it’s either the switch itself or the switch mounted under the lid which moves the locking mechanism (see attachment).
Anyone else had the same issue or knows how to fix the problem?

I've not had any experience with the Ka but it's likely to be either the actuator (motor), or as you said the switches.
Are you able to test if any power reaches the actuator when the button is pressed?

Is the cable plugged into the socket on the tonneau cover release? This need to be disconnected when putting on the hard top to prevent the switch behind the driver's seat from working.
