I would start at the basics first. Have you checked the fuses?
Have the codes been checked?

Hi, thanks for the prompt reply. I checked the fuses in the trunk panel there are two 20's that look like they are fine. Apologies for not understanding, which codes are you referring to?

THere are codes stored in the pcm that will give DTC or Diagnostic Trouble Codes. A scanner is required to get them out of the pcm. However we may be able to get through this otherwise.
Check these fuses:
They are located on the passenger side.
In the #1 jusnction block.

Also check all of these in the trunk:

All those seem to be good as well.

There are 55 different trouble codes associated with this system as it is complex:
These are the vairious components. The trouble codes give a start to diagnosing this system and after looking at this, I need to know them.
Maybe autozone can read them, as they do this for free or may need a special scanner for the Lexus, not sure on this. But without codes the field is too large to go after.

I found somthing that may help. I found a technical service bulletin that mentions that if a request is made to open the luggage door while the hardtop is in operation, the operation will be cancelled. IT will be then necessary to manually finish the started operation. I would try to manually do this and see if it resets the system. After it is fully opened and closed it should then be enabled.
