I had the same problem. One day I opened the hydraulic resevoir under the spare tire to check the level of the hydraulic fluid and voila' the top started to work fine. It opened and closed perfectly. It has worked fine now since July. The only thing I did was open the resevoir. Perhaps there was some kind of air block!

My window goes back down to half way when i wind up with the auto fuction

what kind of vehicle? Usually when that happens either the window glass it rubbing against the stops or stabilizers and the window thinks there is something in the way and is stopping. Sometimes the auto function is out of sequence. Try pushing the up button and holding it for a few seconds and then auto it down. That might solve the sequence problem.

Won't blow hot air, engine heats up at high speed

If your radiator is full of water, then its probably the thermostat sticking. The thermostat is located on top of the engine, under the housing that the radiator hose goes to

05 audi a4 convertible top goes half way up and stops. Won't go farther or back down

Happened to me while parking on a slight incline...moving to flat surface alleviated problem. However, my top stuck in down position so dealer replaced the module for $750...probably should be a recall item.
