It's that time of year! I took the bimmer out yesterday, and there seams to be no power going to the roof. It used to work fine...The dash lights start dimming when I attempt to use the power roof?? where do I start? I am no expert! thanks!

If all the fuses and circuit breakers are okay, maybe the motor(s) have gone bad.

Like witeshark said, check your fuses, if fuses check ok, to check for a bad motor,unplug motor & with a 12volt test light check for power at the motor plug connector......
