Check the microswitches (there are up to 6 on fully automatic top) - look here for reference and troubleshooting procedures:

How do I opened a fully automatic convertible top manually on a 1997 328i bmw


Most have a seperate crank to open and close top in case of an emergency ....If you have checked all fuses,relays,..etc..and know motor is broken you can remove the drive from the motor and raise it manually by hand with an assistant on the other side..

Electrical cut


ok there is a loose wire and when your rpms get to arround 5-6 im sure your motor starts to wiggle and jiggle a bit and they touch thats where your cut appears but at idle id think they are apart eanough to keep the electricity from jumping get it checked out at a mechanic or try and locate the wire yourself

1996 bmw 328i convertible top won't open


The top works with two circular motors in the trunk. The motors are similar to the ones that open and close the windows. The motors of the roof can be engaged and disengaged. One motor drives the roof lid the other one drives the roof itself. The trick to engage and disengage the motors so that they are correctly syncronized to opening and closing.
