Flashing light of death

I have a 2005 Mini Cooper convertible non-s, my top will work half way. The sun roof retracts and the hooks come undone for the top to be read to retract . Instead I get the flashing read light. So I replaced the convertible top control module and the relays . Still red light. I also tryed bypassing the swith with a 12v battery straight to the motor to make sure the motor wasn't burnt up. It isn't, it works fine. Yes the parcel shelf and the locking latch for the trunk are both depressed. Any suggestions?!
