Try lowering all of the windows and opening and closing the trunk. They are all tied into the roof with sensors. Mine sometimes gets out of sinc and this seems to help

Did you raise the convertible top storage shelf in the trunk?

Until you lower the shelf (by pulling on the lever), the top won't activate.

Did you search the forum for an answer? You should always search before you ask questions. Try fuse #46 labled Verdeck Automatisch - 20 amp. And remember, always cycle the top motor by opening all the way and then closing all the way.
