Default Convertible Top Works Intermitently

Been a Saab owner for years. Just bought my first 9-3 Conv for my son. The top will engage but stops. If I hold the top in the position that it stops to keep it from falling, turn the key off and immdiately back on, I can hit the close/open switch and it will continue to open or close. It will do this about three to four times, but completes a full open or close.

What is happening that turning the ignition switch off and on again would reset the top to continue to operate? I have read several posts about the sensors or switches. Also, I have noticed that the hydralics reservoir is almost full to the top. Could that be the problem, is it to full?

Someone point me in the right direction please! Thanks!!
