My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. This is usually due to an electrical fault with a limit/roof position switch itself sending an incorrect signal on what position the roof is in.I have seen these fail before needing replaced for this fault here.If you have not had the fault codes checked and the switch signals checked using a compatible scan tool plugged into your model at all this needs done.Once this is done the faulty switch is located and replaced in most cases to correct this issue here. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete
