There is a switch located just above the left rear brake light, peal bake the trunk liner and you will see it. It says manual/auto, switch it back to auto and the top should work. You probably just bumped it as my brother in law did, no convertible for over a year...good thing he lives in Seattle.

Sorry, but there's no easy fix for this.
From experience I'm confident that one of the microswitches or relays which control the roof folding sequence has failed. If you're really unlucky then it's the electric motor (rare) or one of the parts attached to the motor assembly (not so rare). Microswitches and solenoids are relatively cheap, but it's a laborious process even for a pro to isolate which component has failed and often a real job to get to the offending part and replace it.
As a basic guide though, first check the fuse. If it's failed then DON'T just replace it without further investigation: fuses do not wear out, they fail because there's a fault somewhere which has caused too much current to pass through and the fuse is sacrificed to prevent fire or other serious damage. A simple tip is to listen to the solenoid for a click when activated. If there is none then check to confirm power is reaching the solenoid; if there is then give it a sharp tap when operating the roof. This sometimes causes a dodgy solenoid to operate but it will still need to be replaced. If the solenoid appears to be OK then you'll need to trace and isolate each component in the circuit to test them individually. If they all check out OK then you'll need to carefully check they wiring loom, especially where it passes through bodywork.
To do all of this you'll need time, patience, some basic automotive electrical tools and it's vital that you obtain both a circuit diagram and a physical wiring schematic (the first shows how the circuit works, the second shows how it relates to the actual wiring). A Haynes manual is usually essential for this and will pay for itself with the first repair you use it for.
Although this kind of job may seem daunting you can usually narrow down where the fault may lie or even identify what's wrong which will save a lot of labour costs if you choose to get the repair done professionally.
Good luck, and fingers crossed for a fast and obvious fault-finding.

check the parcel shelf has been refitted correctly as there is a micro switch on the left hand side that stops the second stage of the roof from opening

One of the best ways to bleed these systems is to have 2 people, one inside, one at the wheels. DO NOT PUMP THE PEDAL. Have the inside guy push the pedal slowly down, while you loosen the bleeder screw and as soon as he says that the pedal is all of the way down, close the bleeder screw. Repeat this about 6-7 times starting at the right rear, left rear, right front, left front. When it feels like the pedal is rock solid, trun the vehicle on and pump the pedal to allow the ABS to actuate through self test and check for pedal heigth. Test drive and see where the pedal activates. If these are brand new pads, please do not panic stop. A good test drive and normal stopping with such a heavy car will tell you if there is anything else going on. One thing to consider while putting these pads on, is to open the bleeder while pushing the piston back into the caliper. Run a vacuum hose from the bleeder to a plastic bottle to avoid a mess. With pressure still on the piston, than close the bleeder. Let me know if you need anything else.
