I can get it to go off by re-closing roof but it will start going off again. Replaced top lock motor and assembly.

Did this start happening after you replaced it or before? It sounds like one of the top position switches is out. Here is a guide to help you test them and the top wiring diagrams so you can see how it works:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

This happened before replacing top lock motor and assembly. Dealer diagnosed it wrong. Where do I find top position switches and can I replace them?
