OK. Here is the section in the owners manual that has instructions for closing the top manually. You may only need to get it to move enough to secure the cargo divider, if not you need to move it all the way up. Good luck and please ask if I can help you more.
If your vehicle has a power loss, such as a dead battery, you can still raise the top manually by doing the following:
Find the hydraulic pump under the carpet on the rear driver's side of the trunk. Open the valve by turning it counterclockwise with your hand until it stops.
Notice: Pressing the retractable hardtop button when the hydraulic pump valve is open could damage the pump. Always close the hydraulic pump valve after the retractable hardtop has been closed manually.
While holding the rear of the top down, insert the wrench into the bolt in the plug opening in the headliner. Turn the wrench counterclockwise until it stops to fully open the latch jaws around the pins.
If the vehicle has lost battery power, you can still open the trunk using the key.
The key cylinder is located behind a cover on the lower rear fascia on the driver's side of the vehicle. Use the key to pry open the door to access the key cylinder.
