It could be the top's microswitch or the hydraulic pump. Take it for a drive and then try putting the top down. If it works, probably the pump, as it's not coming up to pressure quickly enough without driving it.

Does (did) it make any noise?

Mom’s ‘06 had a gear in the left roof transmission split, and caused a pushrod on the right to break at the cap.
