There is a top reset procedure however here is the short version
[Starting with the top in the down position]
1-Confirm the motors are popped in their locations (the trunk has two motors, one controlls the top, and one controls the tonneau cover).
2-With the ignition off hold the top control in the open position for 30 seconds
3-switch the ignition to the on (not start) position holding the top control button. LED light should flash and the top will start to re-synch
4-After resynch is finished top should operate as designed.
(I have read a version of the resynch that says hold the button in the closed position however the instructions I read said to hold it as if you were opening it.
My top motor that controls the tonneau has a bent frame so I get grinding sounds. Working to fix now.
try this video- good luck
