reset rollbar/powertop/windows sl500

I had to jumpstart my 98 sl500 after it went dead and now have to following problems: the rollbar malfunction indicator light on the dash is on, the rollbar up/down switch on the console is lit up with both up and down, the power top switch on the console is lit up, neither window will roll up or down. In addition the radio won't work. There must be a way to reset this. Please HELP! Thanks.

It sounds like you have some blown fuses. Be sure to replace all of the fuse! They corrode on a Mercedes and will fail over time. You should find the ones in the trunk as well.

The radio probably says "CODE" in the display, or not? If it does, you need to enter the security code, you should have a radio manual with the car to help you through this, and a gray plastic card with the 5 (?) digit security code, you'll need that to do it.
The windows probably just need to be synchronized, do they move at all? Look in the regular owners manual to do this. I don't believe the top will start to work until the windows are all the way down.
Worst case scenario is that the RST control module (under the false floor in the right storage well behind the passengers seat) may need to be disconnected and plugged back in (all 3 connectors).
The car was just jump-started with another car, right? These gas-powered jump start units that are on some tow trucks can really fry control modules.
Let us know how you're doing.
