Convertible top won't open

I suspect the top switch by the rearview mirror is at fault. Brake lights do come on. What is the best way to bypass this switch for testing purposes? Thank you. (Boxster 98)
... the handbrake light to be on in the instrument cluster, not your brake lights.
If when you pull the handbrake the light is off most likely it's a dirty microswitch at the base of the handbrake.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
