1996 328I convertible top problems. Please Help.

I have reset the engaging motors in the trunk of the 1996 328I but now the motors aren't turning when I try to reset the top. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have figured out my problem after e-mailing another member. There is a fuse in the trunk of the car next to the battery that controls the motor for the top. This is often the answer if the motors will not re-sync and lift the top.
