Welcome to Just Answer!!!
When you try to operate the top does the light on the overhead display blink ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes it,s blinks whether you operate top or not.top was working with light blinking and I have felt inside right windshield opening for sensor and don,t feel one there.wife bought car about a month ago and light was blinking then but top worked.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 1 year ago.
The light blinking indicates there are trouble codes stored in the top control module. You will need a capable Volkswagen scan tool to check these faults and see what trouble codes do you have stored in there. There are about 12 different Micro switches that make the top work you need these trouble codes to see which one has failed. Please do not forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided we as experts rely on this for our families

we don,t have a local vw dealer so I will have to find someone that can read codes then I will get back to you.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 1 year ago.
No problem
They have to use a Vw capable scan tool a generic will not work
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I haven,t had a chance to get car to dealer to read codes and can,t rate your service since no repairs have been made.I hope to get cat to dealer next week and will be in touch as soon as i have codes.
