Rollbar light???

Rollbar light???
I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I read all of the case and seems that my case is a little unique and help would be appreciated.

Problem :

rollbar light in dash always ON.
rollbar switch flashing all the time.

the drama :

It all started my top would stop working , and then it would work again when I recycle the key (off and on without starting), due to low battery I think (from reading this forums), finally it stopped responding at all, so I went to the dealer, they hooked up the computer erase codes the usual stuff everything is fine,top works it's all good, my mechanic noticed the battery is not crancking very well , he advised changing it, so we got a new battery (mercedes) changed the battery.
As I was taking off he suggested I try the top again to make sure everything is ok. top stopped in the middle of closing, oops so I pulled back in.

we spent the whole after noon checking fuses and connections, cause the codes refused to erase. He didn't think of manually closing the roof before doing it.

So we did close the roof , hooked it up again to the laptop cleared the errors , everything works fine except now the roll bar light in the dashboard is on and the roll bar switch is falshing at all times in all roll bar positions. please note roll bar works fine via switche, havent's tested the real sensors yet.

He is suggesting the ECU is bad, I have a feeling it's not, don't wanna spend the big bucks ifd I can save my ECU.
Any ideas???


everything works fine, roll bar goes up and down via switch no problems, soft top wroks fine, windows work fine up to spec they crack down when you open the door.
I'm going again to see him this weekend, and I would like to take some suggestions for him to try, before I decide to change the ECU .

thank you.

PS: posted this also in the sl forum if it's against the rules my apology and mods feel free to delete the inappropriate one.
