Soft top flap not lifted

Dears, hi

I've faced with some problem with my cabriolet.

First of all, i don'd have problems with 'closing' only with "opening"

My roof doesn't go further to the "trunk" and system gives something like "error" and everything stops.
That section where is roof rear glass stops in the middle of the process, like this:
(sorry for big image. that's just for preview)


Yesterday was kind of miracle, because we suddenly had open roof and it worked properly (?!) In this case we noticed that this is not hydraulic problem.
Then we close roof again and after that, roof again did not want to work properly.

Also i have this error - Soft top flap not lifted - 96 (attached photo)


Anyone can help with this?
As i understand, this is electronic problem (sensor probably?)

You could try the relay first, really easy to get to and cheap to replace, the relay part is 54347025596, or you can test it with a freind relay
afyer that with the pump. The solenoid that controls the storage lid cylinders is attached to the pump as well
