I do not believe you can pull the soft top code with one of those cheap scanners.
Go to peachparts.com, and to the sl section. Do a search for my user id - waybomb. Somewhere in there, about three years ago, I had a problem with my soft top. Somebody posted very detailed instructions on how to pull codes off of a different plug, not the 38 pin, using a wire or two and watching the soft top button to flash out codes (you'll need two people - one to jumper, one to watch and record the codes, and how to reset after you fix whatever the issue is. It may simply need resetting, as mine did after the battery died.
