I suspect there may be an issue with the hall sensor that signals the computer when the top is all the way down in the folded position. This sensor gets energized only when the top is all the way down.

When you say 'lock down' - are you saying it won't complete the open process, or is your top not closing all the way?

Not sure if I can help, but please clarify.
