3 mph if I remember right. Its slow.

Somebody was thinking, can you imagine that thing opening at 50?

Not sure if the SLK behaves like the SL, but the car is smart enough to know what events are occuring at that speed.

For example, slowing down to 3mph from driving speed? No way! It requires you to stop first...then it will allow top operation at stop or proceeding very slowly.

Can do in reverse too...

Tech Help post in a few years; Please help, I accidentially pushed my top-down button on the expressway last night and the safety apparently failed because it opened. Do I have a bad relay?? Also see my post in the 'Parts' forum under 'parts wanted'.
