E-Brake cable broke with the top down

Hello all, as the title says, my emergency brake cable broke with the top down (of course) and I cannot get the top up because I cannot activate the parking brake sensor. Does anybody have any tricks to get the top up until I can get it replaced?

Jumping E-brake switch?

Remove the side piece next to the ebrake and see if u can get a finger or screwdriver to depress the switch. That should be all it takes
