Convertible Top failure

I went to put my top down today, and got nuthin'. No motor sound, no movement, just a sad face (that was me). Anybody have any experience or advice with this issue? It worked fine yesterday... guess I'm glad the top is up since winter is coming......

Sounds to me like a micro switch issue to me.
I had the same issue and bypassed the problem by installing a Comfort Top module.
