Angry M3 Convertible top not working

Manually lowered fully automatic 1998 convertible top down and re-engaged both motors in the trunk again. Then i go to hold the button and turn the key twice and wait for a minute and still nothing happens

Someone else said to check a fuse on the left side of the battery
after having trouble even finding it there was only one red wire connected to it while he showed me a picture of his 1999 having two red wires going into the fuse. on top of that it looks to be melted not sure if it could have done any damage but still unable to open/close the top
need this sorted asap

Well, first check that fused circuit for any shorts.

Does the light on the switch blink? Have you checked the micro switches?
