If it was my car, I would get myself access to Lexia or Diagbox from ebay to get a better read of the codes that are missing a description and for the ones with a description, read the suggested testing and fault finding procedure suggested by lexia.

Tips of reading codes it to read them fully (description and code), record them (for future reference) and then delete any non permanent codes.

Try to start (it may even start with some codes cleared), and record any new codes generated from a new read with lexia.

Its only these latest and updated codes that are worth spending time diagnosing. Often the description can guide you where to look, sometimes not, other times the lexia system can give you more information on how to proceed.

You need to fault find the faults, for example
P0264... PERMANENT FAULT INJECTOR 2 CONTROL SHORT CIRCUIT TO EARTH
Indicates there is a permanent short circuit on an injector or the injector loom or the engine ECU.....

If it was ok before changing the roof, and fitting a roof caused the fault, its probably something to do with the roof? Have you checked all the fuses?

There is a list of fuse boxes here including the hidden ones, which may have something to do with the roof.
