Roof stopped going up or down

For no reason, my roof stopped moving. The red light is flashing. no sound to the motor that I can hear.

Also - pass side seat is stuck in reclining position - seat moves front to back but the back of seat is stuck down.

Thanks for any help.

Be careful

I was having problems with my roof it was opening when it wanted even if I was going down the free way

anyway I kept messing with it and the fabric ended up hitting the rear deck no biggie right! well after a diagnosis that cost $127 now it needs a $750
lifting motor that some how I ended up stipping out the teeth

moral of the story is I am a capable mechanic but the tops are very complex take it in and spend the 127 at the BMW dealer to findout whats wrong before you cause more problems

just my 02 worth take it or leave it
