That is exactly what I was after, thanks millions.
Any ideas as to the cause.
The car was just painted, which involved removing just about everything.
The entire sunroof was out, as well as the lock boxes.
Everything was ok prior to all this work, something must set it off.
Any clues as to where I should start looking, lock boxes or sunroof switches
