investigating I found wires cut overhead for sunroof and no
motor I have since bought motor with wiring and wired still
no action out of any windows an sunroof still doesn't have
power to switch any help been working on this for a week

wires can break at driver door hinge area from open ,close too often, consider window safety lockout button will kill three of them , pull door panel and test with test light for switch working proper ,rainwater usually plays hell with the driver door switch
