Inspect the folding linkage for the roof for damage or any obstructions

Also check for items/obstructions in the top storage area behind the back seat.

1)Truck might be open,if it's open the top will not go down. 2) IF you moved the seat while the top was going up or down. It made the top go in freeze mode. Put seat back to original position. It has a sensor some where between the back of the seat and end of the door. 3)Top can also be but down manually between the truck area and back seat. The little flap that goes up. GOOD LUCK. ;)
