I am in desperate need of your assistance. I found the forum where you described using the hose-clamp/dowels for the convertible top motor. I diagnosed the same problem, and did the same thing and was able to get the top down with no problem. I even got the red light to stop flash (I pressed both the up/down buttons for 5 seconds and it stopped flashing/reset) (I think). However, now it will not go up at all, it does not even try. I am not sure if I have to reset something?
What part is used to lift the top in the beginning? You can email me direct at email@example.com or call at 310-619-6708. I need to sell the car to pay for some debt (just graduated) and I can not afford to bring it to a shop.
