I don't think YOU can fix it- could be a switch, could be a motor, could be a relay, could be a cable, could be something hung up- take it to the dealer- these things are amazingly complicated and the dealer should know them better than anyone else- what a luxury, a power top- enjoy the freedom when your top comes down-

When I had problems with my top going down it turned out to be I needed new hinges.

This worked: turned ignition key to ON position (not all the way to start engine, just to where radio can be turned on). Turned back off. Ignition back to On. Raised the windows. Turned ignition back to off. Turned key all the way to ignition and started engine. Pushed the Close button and the top functioned as expected. Saved a trip to the shop. This from another guys answer and question. Hope it helps hottie..
