|Power Top Broke (archive)|

Today, while trying to put the top down, the motor kept running, even when I took my foot off the brake and stopped pressing the button. The only time it stopped was when I held down the brake and the "up" button.
I was able to throw everything out of the trunk (which was of course full), open the compartment disconnect the motor from the top and also pull the power connector. Whenever I re-attach the power, the motor starts again.
I tried pulling the fuse and putting it back, but that didn't help. Any ideas?
I can take it to my dealer, but that will take a week to get an appointment and take 2 hours or so (the dealer is ~1 hour away) and I'm hourly paid of course... so I loose that income... I'm actually quite upset... shouldn't a NEW car that cost 40k+ not have so many problems?
