Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're seeing a top malfunction message it's because the power top control module is seeing a problem in the system and stopping operation to prevent damage. The problem could be mechanical but is more likely to be wiring or a bad microswitch.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see what fault codes are setting in the PTCM. Do you have a scan tool capable of communication with it?

I hooked up my scanner an it did not have any codes in it it said I have to take it to the dealer to get what was wrong with it

The reason you're seeing the warning is because fault codes have set. What did you use to look for codes?
