Royal screw up

Mea culpa.

Today, I tried to install a Smarttop. I struggled for quite a while to tear apart the car to get at the top controller as per the directions. Finally, got it installed and the top won't work at all. The red LED is flashing and neither button does anything. Removed the Smarttop and it still doesn't work, plus the window switches don't work either! I was able to put the top up manually, except for the rear window which wouldn't budge no matter how much pressure I put on the Allen wrench. Being that this is Florida and could rain at any time and I don't have a garage, I left the car in my brother's garage and borrowed his car for the night. Tomorrow, I will bring it into the dealer and pray that I didn't fry any electronics.

Any ideas on what the fix might entail, besides a lot of money changing hands?

I'm getting, no I am, too old for this crap! No more do it yourself.
