Could be many things from a fuse, to bad conection, to faulty motor etc. If you've already checked the correct fuse.

Check the relay for the sunroof is working. If you bought the car from a garage take it back for them to fix, if not goto a scrap yard, behind the ceiling light, get the motor out for the sunroof and you'll see a black relay IIRC. Take this out of a few cars incase the one you removed from the first car was dud and swap it with yours. If you want take a motor aswell incase yours has packed in.

If your good with a multimeter test the switch is working, power is getting to the motor etc etc.

Re: got it

When I took my Brava on the test drive, they let me go out on my own, so I pulled it into a layby and had a good luck round it and noticed the sunroof didnt work then. When I got back to the garage I said yes I'll have the car and can you look at the sunroof as it doesnt work, It's probably just a fuse or something.

When I went to collect it the following week, It turned out they couldnt get it to work, So they sent it to a Fiat dealer who changed the whole sunroof mechanism, electrics, glass and all, and gave the garage a nice bill for 490 pound for their troubles.

I was waiting for them to say they wanted me to pay for it, but they didnt.

Re: got it

if it worked and then stopped again it suggests the motor isnt the problem, more likely to be the relay or a wiring fault. do a quick test by giving the motor a direct live and earth with it removed to see if it works ok, thats better than buying a motor you dont need.
