Really need a better, more complete and detailed description of the problem.

Be specific and complete.

I understand the OP perfectly ... ................. if your car is a 355 ............... the first thing to check would be the fluid level located at the rear of the console, under the cube shaped cover. That would cause limited or intermittent travel of the top.

........... F355 ...........

+1 on the fluid level. Check the fuses as well. Also sometimes the frame will get bent and that will throw the whole mechanism off.
