SOURCE: the roof on my vw
This problem could be caused by a sensor being trapped or a fuse has blown, check your fuse box under the hood Identify the one for the roof system it may also be the same one for the boot lock.
the roof system is quite complex and has about 8 pumps or somthing to make it work.
if it is some other malfunction of the roof system I would recommend taking it to the dealership as any forcement of the roof may cause damage and become more costly than what VW will charge you on repair. if there is a large cost due to pump or other defect ask them to manually close the roof, at least you will not get wet and you can still drive your car. until you can get the repair made.

i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.
however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)
