I am using the VCDS package and following the notes... The top goes down with all the proper locks and status bits switching (based on the directions here: VW Beetle (1Y) Roof Electronics - Ross-Tech Wiki ).

Once the top goes down, I can drive with no error messages, etc.

When I try to get the top to go up, the lock motors run and it unlocks and the status bits go to: 00 001 001001 like the wiki says, but the hydraulic motor never engages and everything stops.

I get, on the diagnostic codes, a Switch for Stowed Canopy F171 Implausible signal error, even though the status codes above match what they should be AND I just replaced the F171 switch with a brand new one from VW dealer.

Any ideas?
