The flashing red light o'death was the hardtop install kit missing. I unfortunately sold it before knowing my car was coded to require it, so the CVM was complaining the sensor that detects the hardtop is installed was malfunctioning. The hardtop kit is $140, yet I really only needed the sensor. I found out the hall sensors are all the same, and only $23: http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/61318378940/ES168252/

With the sensor hard wired in the top finally came to life... only to stop after unlocking from the wiindshield, so I must have broken a wire in the harness when replacing the main lift cylinders. Probably when trying to force the stupid gas strut back on.

Also installed the rebuilt storage lid cylinders Klaus rebuilt for me! Thanks Klaus! Re-installation took about 30 mins.
