This sounds like it may still be the top lock switch itself at fault here.Even if it fully opens and then closed when you manually release it when it isnt manually released the lock switch may be showing the top is unlatched with the top is closed all the way and can disable the automatic release and open of the roof.Then when you manually release it the other switch/sensors send signals that the top is released as when you manually release it most likely another switch/sensor sends this signal.Then the top operates properly from there.I have seen this occur before and usually it is the top lock switch itself that needs replaced in most cases for this issue here even though it seems to be o.k.
