My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This type of fault here is usually caused by an internal electrical fault with one of the top micro switches that sends signals on what positions components of the top are in.If one or more of these have failed internally this causes this issue..What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes checked/read out with a fully compatible scan tool that can plug in and communicate with all computers to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set need diagnosed to help locate and repair this issue here.In allot of cases the same scan tool is used to monitor the switch signals to locate any at fault needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
