Convertible top will not operate

I have replaced everything but the panel rocker switch and ebrake switch which i know is good because the cluster light comes on when brake is on. I know the motor works and will open and close the top because i hot wired it to test it. What am i missing? If anyone has any tips to help figure this out it would be much appreciated.

Might there have been any binding when completed? Could it have blown a fuse?

My light would come on with the parking brake, but the switch was bad anyway. That's usually the most common culprit when the top suddenly stops working.

Absolutely correct! I bypassed my switch when it went bad and would not allow me to operate my top. The bypass allows you to open/close roof while in motion.

By parking brake light still works when I use the parking brake.
