2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Top Repair Pick Up

April 11, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

By now we all know that a couple of little cables let go on the convertible top mechanism and we had them repaired at no cost. That was a first. It just so happened that when I went to pick it up, there was a slight problem: Dead battery, but this was not a first.

Way back here, we found out what happens when you leave the map light on. So what happened this time?

The technician who brought this big, yellow jump-starter over said somebody had left the ignition on, perhaps in the accessory position. After he cleared the codes, he told me I should drive the car for at least 15 minutes before shutting it off. Tough job, but somebody had to do it.
