Customer: its just up like it normally would be for the roof to go in it but the roof wouldn't retract

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you continue to hear the pump run but the top does not move then the issue is either hydraulic or mechanical binding. If you hear no noise then most likely the module that controls the top has seen a problem and stopped operation to prevent damage. If the pump doesn't run then some electrical testing is going to be necessary to diagnose the issue.

Do you hear the pump run when trying to move the top?
