Here is a video I made when I installed the smarttop.
I did this install too. I did manage to snap one of the little metal things inside the connector and had to escalate the procedure to using a soldering iron... All is well now but I was sweating for a whileWithout boring you with a long story, suffice it say that you should be very careful to prevent any exposed wire from grounding and shorting. Control modules don't like that.
This doesn't surprise me. A lot of cars seem to cut power to just about everything but the starter motor when starting a car. That probably interrupts the module and leaves it having no idea what it was just doing.I've had my smart top for 18 months now. It works great and the reliability is perfect. No glitches and I like the comfort windows. One interesting point is that if you open up the top and then start the engine the top stops moving and gets stuck in mid-position. Until you push the button again. Kinda weird but not a big deal.
