can I drive the car if the soft time not secure message comes on after the battery died ? got AAA out to give me a jump and the soft top not secure light came on and keeps on beeping if I drive over 3 miles an hour. IS it safe to drive ? just a electrical glitch?

www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PyELMOy1dw --- there are several different sensors on your top and they may need to be reset. This video shows how one guy reset his. Different model car than yours but it may help. Also have you tried to open your top? It might just need cycling so all the sensors read its position properly. Hope this helps.
