Have you had your door wiring harness recalled or replaced yet? Pop the rubber cover off between the door and body and see if there are any cracked/broken wires. There was a recall on this part because the wires they provided were too short and would crack after X number of opening/closings. Unsure about the sunroof... good 'ol vw electrical gremlins!

Found the problem with trunk, trim around the latch pin was holding trunk lid. Taking to pick a part next week get a couple of dome light-sunroof assemblies and try that

Sunroof switch has a ghost in it sometimes. I took mine apart, gave it a deoxit blast, and reseated everything, been ok for 6 months now. Reminds me I am driving a vw....

I will check that. I see you fixed a door switch, driver's door? How did you fix it?

Put in another sunroof switch, nothing! I checked the wiring at the switch no power! I checked the fuses first so ?

Do a search of 3 dollar door switch fix, tons of info. Replaced switch and its held in place with JB weld. No power to sunroof is different than most I have seen....
