Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can prevent the top from working. The problem may be mechanical damage, it could be electrical such as a bad microswitch, it may be a hydraulic issue such as a failed pump or a leak.

When pressing the top button does the instrument cluster say top in operation or does it say top malfunction?
