There are two more microswitches in the assembly and these too have been reported to stick, though not as frequently.

The 1st is located at the driver side 'B' pillar and is easily checked. The 2nd is located at the motor itself located on-center on the rear wall of the top compartment - you'd need to put the top in the Service position to access it. This can be done manually if you check your owners manual.

Of course, there is also a fuse (B6) and the top control relay (the only double-sized relay) in the Driver kick panel above the fusebox. Check the fuse, and remove/replace the relay to make sue it is properly seated and not corroded.
