Wow.. Yeah I hear ya. But when it comes to these convertibles, when you are working on them, you need a scanner to actuate operations and do a convertible top relearn once you can get it all operating. This is for sure not a do it yourself type job.
Just to give you a idea on what I mean. I have a video where a convertible top wasn't working. When it looses it's hydraulic state that only means that it lost it's time. So I had to manually operate the top to get it up. Then once up, I performed a hard reset to get the top working. Once the top was back into operation, then I was able to perform a convertible top relearn which times all the moving parts to the proper sequence. Then the top will work as designed.
I know this won't be the answer you want to hear. But I am afraid is your answer. These tops are very advanced and computer controlled.
