Default Window and Sunroof Module Reset - Driver's Window Won't Roll Down/Sunroof Won't Open

I've done reading across a few different posts and I cannot find a definitive solution. What is causing the module to be reset (power loss at some point) where the driver's window won't go down and the sunroof won't stay open? Multiple hard resets only lasts for so long. The battery is pretty new in the car. The battery is not getting drained when parked as the car will start after sitting for long periods over multiple weeks without issue. I'm going to replace the fuse just to ensure there isn't something suspect, but are control module failures common? Can they be fixed if you have some electronics experience?

Default hard reset

try another hard reset hold negative cable to positive for at least 15 seconds this seems to reset everything. I only used to hold it for 5 seconds then would have to do it again after a month or so worth a try jrb53

Is this the latch mating to the B pillar?
