Does it operate at all?
Is the deck lid open?
Is the e-brake light coming on?
Whats it saying on the instrument cluster ?Is the cab top light just flashing?

Does it operate with the door lock? Is the parking brake indicator light on?

Here's more info....
The parking brake in on and light is lit.
The top can be moved manually-top and lid.
The top indicator light is lit for open top after engine is started.
That light remains light after the hard top is installed and secured.
The deck lid is secured.

thanks for the replies..

Default Top issues

Porsche cabriolet tops goes down fine top comes up it latches then release and latches and release with no locking and rear windows dont roll up correct ? Well on the car side of the latching mech there is a mico switch that pushes in use a small screwdriver and push it it while the lock is engaged . If it locks then release and that is it . If swith is damaged then the unit needs to be replaced but if this repairs the issue there is a quick fix cut a piece of plastic use some epoxy glue and glue it to the plastic patel that attivate the micro switch
