Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

There are quite a few things that could prevent the top from moving. If you hear nothing at all when pressing the switch then the issue is likely electrical. If the issue was hydraulic then you'd still hear the pump motor, if it was mechanical then you should see the top attempt to move or would have known there was a problem the last time the top was moved. An electrical problem with the system could be the switch, wiring, the module that controls the top, or a failed microswitch.

Have fuses been checked?
