I had the same problem with my 2004 after I had completed a Bluetooth installation...basically I had drained the battery to the point that it did not have the umph to open my top....albeit everything else worked fine.

So, a short drive down the road ( a mile or so) I pulled over and tried again...worked like a charm. The battery just needed some rejuvination from the alternator.

Give it a shot....hope it works!

Yes, it does...good point (I was going too far down the troublshooting tree).

As stated above...You may first want to ensure the convertable top stowage divider is in the correct position in the trunk....!!!

If you never come back and tell us what the problem was, we'll assume it was simply the divider (and you are forgiven... )

Top won't open

I jammed some stuff in my trunk and it pushed the space enhancer bar thing up and when I emptied the trunk it stayed up and that will not allow the top to open. Took some owners manualing to figure that one out.
