I had the same problem for four years until I purchased a CD from Ebay titled "BMW E30 Convertible". I discovered, that I was opening the top up incorrectly. The top works fine. Unlatch the top from the windshield frame, then lift up the back half of the top, unlatch the top lid, rise it up and lower the top into the compartment, close and latch the soft top lid.
Hopes this helps.

ok sensor I is located at the right of the top side oil filter, and sensor II is located to the very front right corner of the engine, they should just turn out like a bolt, diconnect the wires first of course and then tunr them out and replace then, make sure to put anti seize on the threads when installing new ones, reconnect wires and test again.
I have this very same problem. When i try to start ot after it warms up i just get a wirling sound. After about 2 hours when it has cooled down it will start fine. The problem is the starter motor. The solinoids exspand when hot and lose contact because of the heat fom the engine. This is a classic starter motor problem when they are on their last legs. The only other thing it could be is the brushes loosing contact. Either way just replace the starter and it will be fine.
Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual. Good luck...i hope this helps,
