You have error codes stored in the soft top controller. Do a forum search for info on how to clear the error codes and find possible causes for the errors.

You also have the usual fuel accumulator starting problem. Again, use the forum search tool to find info.

Both of these issues are very common and have been written up numerous times.

The soft top controller isn't receiving confirmation that the windows are fully lowered. The signals come from a limit switch located in the bottom of each door. Reading codes or checking inputs to the controller (both easy) would positively identify in which door the problem is located.
