97 328 convertible top fully to semi?

Hi. I've just brought a 328 convertible and the top is fully automatic but has obviously had some issues and now is working manually with a latched top at the front instead of self locking and some wires cut in the tonneau cover latch. It's not working and everything is still there and I've read lots of posts on top issues etc but couldn't find an answer. Are you able to change it from fully automatic to semi automatic or does this require a new computer? The red light just flashes on the console button, the tonneau cover doesn't sit properly because it doesn't have the manual latch. I have also have some other issues but are still reading earlier posts relating to those to see if I can sort them. Thanks in advance I kind of want the top working again.
