Hello, welcome to the .org; sorry to hear you are having problems with your convertible top. Things can be fixed; it is a matter of diagnosing the problem correctly and replacing the offending parts. Many here; have had specific switches fail, that tell the computer the position of the top, thus it will not work.
Diagnosing, these type of issues; requires, a Volkswagen compatible scanner/code reader. The codes; can point you in the right direction, as to what has failed.
Let us know; if you want to attempt this repair yourself or have someone else, do the work for you. Maybe, someone from your area, can point you in the right direct of a VW independant shop, that can fix it for you (if that is the route; you want to go). We will do our best to help! Post up some pics; we would love to see your new beetle cabrio!
