Hi, this is an ongoing project, I have the soft top sort of working.
With the roof down, if I push the button to close it the windows, roll bar all operate, then the rear compartment opens fine, But the main roof does not move, if I lift it up manually and bring the rear window part up vertical the roof starts operating again, and finishes the cycle.

Any help is appreciated

When you say the roll bar operates I'm guessing you mean it lowers from the raised position?

Yes mate, it operates fine on both buttons, it's just the roof won't lift out of the back compartment. I'm thinking one of the micro switches, after the rear cover lifts.

Probably the switch for the tonneau itself. It's waiting for it to open and never gets the signal.

Do you know what switch it is, or where it is.

That's very helpful my friend, I will print them out and keep them, I will need to get my mechanic to check these.
