Vario-Top stops with Windows down?

Does anyone know where to start, front/ back windows go down completely. Then all I hear is a clicking in the trunk when switch is blinking red. Pump is full of hydralic and no visible leaks so far. Can all of the electrical switchs be test in place or do they have to be removed. What should the switchs test out at? I am going to check the relay switch next to the pump tonight. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks everyone for help with the K40 relay, soldier joints fixed and running like a champ. Just need to get the top down, its summer.

Vario top

Thanks for the list, had not seen this one! It should give me a good place to start troubleshooting. It looks like the front latchs release after all the windows are down, then the trunk lid. Mine stops when all of the windows are down.
Thanks,
Jon
