Convertible top stopped working

I am a new member and have been loving my S2K since I bought it in 2004.

My rear plastic window broke last year and I retracted the soft-top and have been driving with my hardtop. A few months later, I took the hardtop off and tried to raise the soft top, but it wouldn't budge. There was no electric motor noise either, so I figure there is something wrong with the electrical connection. After all, how does a motor die when the top is not in use?

I want to replace the convertible top this summer. Anyone have any advise for me as to how I can deal with this problem before ordering the new top?

try pulling the emergency brake up. If that doesn't work, check the interlock switch that is actuated by pulling the emergency brake up. If that doesn't work (the thing you really should have done first) is check the relay and fuses, but you've already done that, right?

I've had mechanics supposedly look at it, so you would think that they would look at the relay and fuses. The car is in the shop right now, so tomorrow, I'll ask them to look at that. Thanks for the tip, Mr. KGF!

Unless they know and work on S2k's, I wouldn't assume anythiing.
