After reading djsilver's and fmzip's posts under "Convertible top electrical troubleshooting tools", I suspected it is a storage compartment cover motor hall sensor (S700). It is. You can see the sensor I found, sitting next to the one in the car.

Not sure why I have an extra one. Apparently, they don't go bad. If anyone needs one, PM me and I'll send it to you.
