If it is stuck you can remove the rear seat bottom and there is a button to press and a fitting for an allen wrench. With these you can release pressure from the system as well as unlock the storage cover so that the top can be manually moved to a closed postion. You need to first remove the console, then lift up the seat to find it. Once you do that, you will manually let the convertible top down, store it in the storage compartment and secure the compartment. From there, the manual switch should work to release the top back up and then down once again. From there the convertible should be reset. Make sure if you are trying to stow the top that the trunk compartment stowage panel is in the down position. Let me know if you have any more questions. If so make sure that you make sure you lock me in as your expert. Thanks for using FixYa!

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.
