Disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 mins. Then connect it and start the car and see if the roof returns to normal operation.

Let me know how you make out..

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Didn't work. I guess I will just try to get dealership or rent a car or something.
Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

If the convertible top is stuck half way, it will need to be towed or driven slowly to the dealer if it's close.

How far if your local dealer?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Over 30 minutes. A friend is going to help me on Monday.

these tops you can only operate manually with a scanner. Some times a hard reset will get them to work again.
