hi bunkeyh, try helping the top when it stops by continuing the movement in the open direction. if it continues operation you probably have bad convertible top straps. another tell-tell sign is if the rear section slams down on the cover or does not hold position. you should be able to reach your hands under the canvas and between the liner at the second bar of the top frame from the windshield to check for sagging or weak straps. in anycase the straps will need to be replaced.

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,
