The relay is double acting. Pull the cover off and watch the armature while a buddy functions the switch. Then go buy a new relay.

That will happen if the up/down push button in the tombstone is unplugged.

Then I suggest you read the dozens of threads on miata.net and elsewhere discussing this problem.

Did you play with anything else and either: forget to plug something back in, or cut any wires/grounds?
