Default Sunroof not working

Hi,
Out of nowhere my sunroof stopped working. I verified that the fuse was good. I got as far as pulling down the top cover by the sunroof switch. I hear absolutely nothing when I push the switch.
I am thinking that the motor is not getting 12v or ground as I would think that the motor would make some noise otherwise.

While I investigate a bit more (until the sun goes down) I was hoping that I could get some advise as what to do next.

I just looked more closely at the motor and I can't see any wires going to it unless I pull the motor. So I am wondering if someone can tell me which are the motor wires.
I think I found where to manually open/close the sunroof. The thing is that I can only raise and lower the rear of the sunroof but it will not move horizontally (open/close). Is this the way the cranking should be working?

I have posted the TSBs for the sliding roof on this forum and Gus has them on his site.

The X308 sliding roofs and parts are exactly the same so this gives you more used parts to chose from if you need parts.

I was wondering how I could test the switch? If that is ok, then I would test the SRCM.

Hi,

I know see that the sunroof switch is part of the circuit board. I confirmed that it is working. I then pulled the motor and bench checked it and it failed. I opened up the motor but was unable to fix it. I purchased a used motor from ebay for $20 (yes, $20) and received it today. I put in the motor and the sunroof opened and closed.

I thought that was an easy fix until I tried to open the sunroof again and it would not work. Bad motor? I pulled the motor and tested it and it worked. I put it back in the car and the sunroof opened and closed. Maybe I did not plug things in well. Job completed. Well, not really as the sunroof will not work all the time. It seems (from just a few tries) that if I pull the plug on the srcm and plug it back in then it operates correctly. I will look more into this tomorrow.

Does this sound like a bad control module? Could that have killed the 1st motor?
