Hi, sorry for the long wait on this question. For this problem the first thing I would do is check the fluid level in the hydraulic pump for the roof. The pump is located underneath the spare tire. Remove the tire and the black cover to access the pump. I would also inspect or replace all of the fuses in the fuse box in the trunk. I'd also try resetting the roll bar by pressing and holding the top of the roll bar switch to raise the roll bar for at least 10 seconds until you hear the roll bar latch.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
