Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem may be mechanical or electrical. If the trunk or tonneau will not physically move due to a mechanical failure then obviously it's not going to move, but the power top control module may be stopping operation due to an incorrect input from a microswitch. A scan tool will be needed to accurately diagnose the problem if a physical issue cannot be found visually.

What message do you see on the instrument cluster when trying to close the top?
