power windows/sunroof problems

Has anyone else had a problem where Both windows (2 door) and the sunroof start glitching up progressively getting worse? they go down fine but not up. and the sunroof is super glitchy. did they all go 'cuz theyre all on the same circuit where one switch fails, so in turn they all do? I wanna know a bit before i start screwing it up. ANY advise would help. thanks.

Sounds like a ground or power issue, but I don't know where the ground point is. I say this because they require a lot more current to go up than down. If you ground is poor, then the poor connection can't sustain enough current to smoothly operate the motor. Warning that a bad connection can get really hot and that's not something you want to have happen inside a wire harness, or other place with fabric / wire sheath.

I'm surprised that the sunroof AND windows have a common ground actually, but they do have a common power line, so maybe a poor connection there somewhere. Pull any associated fuses, make sure they're clean. After that, I dunno. :/
