Hi crockettfishound, I believe you manually open the top. Make sure both the lid motor and top motors are engaged into their transmissions. Open both the lid and top. Press the open conv't button and turn the key to position 1 and continue holding until 15 seconds after the convertible top lid has fully closed. If this does not work you would best be served to take it into your local dealership. Hope this helps!
