Same problem for me. Check if when the hand brake is on, that the light indicating so is also on in the dashboard. If not, there is a switch under the hand brake lever that needs to be replaced.
Try sitting in the car, power on and just move the hand brake up and down, quickly, slowly, partially etc. Keep watching the dashboard - if the brake light comes on, then you can move the top up or down. It will at least work for that one time. The car thinks the hand brake is not engaged, so the top won't work.
I have the switch on order. Will change it when it shows up. Hopefully today.

Just changed the ebrake sensor. Was not that difficult. Now it's fine.
You know it's that if the "brake" light does NOT come on on the dashboard.

My 98 base has a similar top issue, last time I closed it in the last bit of travel I heard a "pop". From that point on any attempt to move the top electrically resulted in nothing but dimming lights, no motor sound. I'm attempting to disengage the mechanism to convert to manual operation, got the 19mm bolt out of the drivers side but the passenger side is a bugger!
Going to work on it more tomorrow, any suggestions?

Thanks
