e36 98 m3 - convertible top resync procedure does not work

I had few issues with my convertible top and right now trying to do the re-sync procedure.

1. pulled the red lever (both motors got disengaged finally)
2. stowed the top and closed the lid
3. engaged both motors
4. Pressed the top close button for 15 seconds
5. Turned key to on position (dashboard lights on) and waited 45 seconds

no movement of the tonneu cover or top.
no cling cling sound either

I assume the tonneu cover motor is not working but how do I find that?

checked fuse #7 (5amp), #49 (20amp near battery) and both look good.

Please help
