Mein Auto: 330 ci convertable
roof stopped mid flight

Hi All,
I was in the middle of closing my roof on my 330 ci 2003 & my wife got out of the car & opened the boot/trunk,it stopped immediately & I could not get it to close after this.
I told a friend of mine & he told me that when you open something when the roof is engaged it cuts out the motor out & it needs to be re-engaged.
Is this true & if not how do I get my roof to close
thanks

Probably yes, but resetting that stuff is better than having the roof open....
