Hello, there is no easy and quick fix for this. I am guessing that the Top Button in the vehicle is flashing as well. Good thing is that if you can get someone to help you, both of you can get on each side of the vehicle and pull it out of the trunk and possibly get it to close. It is hydraulically operated so it will be difficult but possible. As you do this watch to see if there is any binding to make sure the top panels are not bent. The dealer may be able to recalibrate the top, but it may have a sensor, pinched wiring in the top or hydraulic ram issue and may need replacement. If you move the top and at times try to use the button in the vehicle to close the top. As the top goes through movement some of the sensors will change their readings and may allow for the top to close.
