Help! Damsel in distress here... Bear with me, please.
2009, Dual Panel. The shade functions normal, however without warning or any previous issues, the window failed to Vent or Slide.
Swapped fuse out with matched amp (wipers)... All good.
Questioning if switch or motor. ??

Followed the initialization instructions in hopes cheapest/simplest first... Have no clue if I did it properly since instructions, frankly, suck.
Out of habit I attempted opening yesterday and it didn't Slide, but it Vented! Yay Me! But party is over, now it's stuck open.
Perhaps it is just the switch then? I'm attempting to remove/replace but not sure how to do so without damaging the map light housing console. Ironically, I had what I thought was a LH map light out.... Discovered I must have a short since applying pressure to the backside of the white plastic housing (closest to the windshield) with a screwdriver, the bulb illuminates. Could this possibly correlate with the sunroof switch malfunctioning???
Please advise. Baffled here and trying to avoid unnecessary dealer bill. If I can replace the $176 adaptive headlight bulb last weekend on my own (Thanks Ford for your piss poor design to have to remove bumper cover and entire headlight assembly for a bulb. Ingenious.)...I'm somewhat confident I can also conquer this. :)

How did things ever work out for you with your sunroof?

LOL that was a while back. He probably has bought a new car since then. And I have to agree with him on that headlight design. It cost me a pretty penny trying to change that bulb myself.  Lincoln should have kept it simple for the do-It-yourselfers.
