Ok usually when you operate the top you keep holding the button until everything stops moving including the windows and then the light will come on solid when done. Is it possible you are stopping activation once you think the roof is fully opened or closed ?

You typically hold the switch until the pump stops buzzing and the windows stop moving , some customers have been known to not fully complete the process and the warning goes off once you start to drive off.

it still buzzes and light flashes no matter how long you hold button

Ok there is a switch that is not working properly. Do you work on the car yourself ?
