I did more checking and tested all the connections at the cvm plug as per another thread here. All tested good continuity. I did find the casing on the green/white wire was split so I spliced it just for good measure. I adjusted the bowden cables in and out with no result. If I manually put the top down and lock the cowl with the allen key it will go all the way up automatically but it will not lock to the front window frame. After I turn off the car and remove the key I can hear a clicking from the driver's side mechanism. It clicks 2 or 3 times then stops. I wonder if the cowl is trying to lock itself down. This is the same side I saw the broken spring. I took some pics of the broken piece. I could not tell where this piece might attach. Maybe someone could look at their's and find out? Thanks.
