Default My Sunroof has a mind of its own!

Well Im back, I searched all over the forums and tech. pages but found nohting about the problem Ive been having with my power sunroof. It no longer shuts to the right spot any more when i shut the car off, what I mean is when i have the sunroof open and shut the car off the sunroof will start to close and then remain half way open. I have had this problem for about six months now. Also, when I hit a big bump the sunroof will just start opening and closing for about five minutes and then finally stop. Sometimes when I push the buttons to open it they dont even work at all. It seems to me I have either an electrical problem or some sort of bad sensor, anyone had any experience with these problems?

My guess would be a short, if a hot wire is loose, it may incorrectly open/close the sunroof, thinking that somebody is hitting the switch!

Unfortunately I don't have any idea on how to address it, and I'm not that familiar with the wiring for the sunroof.

To stop the annoyance, I'd suggest removing the fuse for the sunroof, so it'* just inoperative, and doesn't open when it'* raining!

Hope that helps...
