Re: 70 XL Roof
I don't know anything about the convertible roof, but extech's suggestion makes sense to me and sounds like a good place to start. Some circuit breakers are self resetting, so it makes sense that it may act up some times and work fine the others. If the relay is overheating and tripping there may be some poor electrical connections that are causing the intermittent operation. Clean the connections and use some dialectric grease to help keep them clean and dry. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to go deeper. Are the roof actuators hydraulic, or electric?
