United-States New Member!! Bought an 05 convertible

Found the forum to get some help. I just bought my daughter an 05 convertible for her birthday. We are very pleased with the car. It's GREAT!!! Our bad news is we can't get the top past the sunroof stage. "flashing red light of death" ? Any ideas on where to start to fix the problem will be greatly appreciated.

I have the same issue. Did you get advice to get it fixed? If not, the shelf in the trunk has to be down and the left latch in the trunk need to be engaged. There are 2 switches on the left side that can only be engaged if the shelf is down and the latch is secure. I checked and double checked both switches in my trunk and they are both fine. But the top will still not go past the sunroof position. I'm broke and was going to be selling it this week till this happened. Ugh! Did anyone give you other ideas of how to fix this?
