Power windows won't go up 97 Boxter

I have a1997 Boxter and the power windows won't go up with the top up, work fine with top down or if I un-plug the micro switch in the B pillar then they will work but it disengages the power top.Any ideas anyone.

Stick your finger in the hook hole in the middle by the dome lights on your BoxSter to actuate the worn pressure sensor. That microswitch goes out and the windows are disabled.

Installed a new switch and tried manualy pushing it in and it does not solve the problem. Also I have replaced the micro switch in the B pillar.

Just to clarify, you replaced the microswitch that is in the top center of the windscreen frame? Part number 98661379502? Also, the windows won't go up at all, or will only go about 3/4 of the way up?
