Sunroof only goes up- not down

I'm pretty well-versed in the world of 123, but i'm trying to figure out 124. I love my 92 300te, but a few things are baffling.
When closing the sunroof (pushing switch forward), it closes, then pops up to vent. When i pull down on the switch to close it, it just continues to try to rise. When it's closed, i can either push up on the switch, or pull down on it. eith way, it rises. I'm having to close it by sliding it open, then sliding it closed and just letting go of the switch in that split-second when it's in between slide and vent.
i bought a switch from a boneyard, and it does the same thing- i was very let-down.
anyway, anybody had this problem? any chance at all that two switches could be malfunctioning in the same way? thanks-mick

wow-sounds easy- and there's one 300te in the junkyard. wonder where the relay is housed on sedans-there are plenty of those there? (assuming they have the same thing). While you're wearing your thinking cap... my other disappointment that day was that i got the dash switch for the rear interior lights out of that same car. mine will turn the lights on, both back seat and tailgate lights, but the setting for them to turn on when the rear doors or tailgate is opened does not work. you have to toggle them on from the dash. so, i got this seemingly precious switch out of the only te in the junkyard, and the same things happens. mean anything to you?
brilliant advice. just got around to doing this, and the sunroof works beautifully. this also means i can now make use of the key in the door to close the windows and sunroof (before, it would close the windows, but open the sunroof). thanks to you and the others. on to something else now!
