This could be a simple overload. Look for a red handled T-key above the fuses . Use this key in a hole at the head of the roof and turn it to lock the roof closed. Similar hole between the rear seats to lock the rear cover closed.

Should reset and work ok , this is in the owners manual.

SOURCE: cabriolet roof stopped halfway through opening

Make sure the car is on level ground. I had the same problem several times. Finally figured out in talking with the Audi service adivsor that if the car is on a hill (like my driveway) internal sensors can't tell the position of the top so it stops.

The owners manual has procedures for manually closing/locking the top.

SOURCE: locating central locking pump

I think it is very likely that it sits at the same place as in my car, which is a 92' model. Anyway, in my car it is located beneath a round cover under the carpet in the right front of the trunk.
Hope this was of any help:)

if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille which should give you access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lever aside to release the hood
Hope this helps

1994 audi cabrio roof will not open pump is working maybe low in fluid

In mine the wiring in the trunk was bad. At the right hinge of the trunk there is a wiring harness for the top. After alot of opening and closing the wires break.

Where is the manual overide for a powerhood on a 1998 audi cabrio

The answer is in the manual but, failing that, look under the passenger side sun visor where you will find a little ****. Push the ignition key into it and this will release the roof. Push back the hood until you can see the two panels, one on each side behind the seatbelts on the back shelf. These can be lifted and the mechanism inside will allow you to open the boot to pack away the hood. Good luck!

Where is the catch??

the button is in the drivers door frame when the door is open there should be a button next to the locking catch. if this does not work the two flaps either side of the hood cover can be lifted up and a hex head allen key can be used to unlock the catches either side of the cover. i've had a problem with the button not working due to electrical problems locking the boot as the cover will not lift with the button if the boot is not locked to prevent damage.

Hydraulic pump automatic roof

I've done it 2 ways:
1st - loosen the pump assy - nuts on either end, then unscrew the plastic bottle. This is a pain unless your hands are the size of a baby's!
2nd - undo the nut on the side of the pump assy. (looks brass, from memory and is about a 13mm) and this uncovers a hole which leads into the top of the bottle. Then use a small hose and syringe to refill. This can get messy but was slightly easier than the first method.

A4 cabriolet hood stuck

I'm not sure about that. I'm assuming that you've checked the fuse. There may be a circuit breaker for the top operation as well, and that may have blown (those are under the hood usually, or under the dash on the driver's side). Have you tried cycling the ignition a few times, or maybe a 30 minute disconnect on the battery? That usually puts the car's computers into relearn mode. I'm just throwing out ideas here since I've never dealt with this before, but they're worth trying.
