give it a slap on the roof where it locks into the windscreen. From what I've read there's a sensor or switch or something where the foof pin locks and they sometimes stop making contact, telling the car that the roof isn't secured.

Unfortunately, when this happened to mine it resulted in a costly replacement of the front hydraulics. Hope yours is something less costly.
