W123 Sliding roof/sunroof troubleshooting
The electric sunroof on my 1980 280CE coupe recently stopped working and I was hoping for some troubleshooting tips from member's experience. Everything was fine until it wasn't, but there were no obvious issues or hideous noises. I just arrived home with the roof open and nothing happened when I went to close it - I had to manually shut the roof from the trunk.
Before jumping to the motor I was wondering if it is likely to be a fuse or switch. I checked the fusebox, but had a hard time telling if the fuse or contacts were bad. I woud appreciate instructions or tips for checking switches as well.
