Default Anybody local good with electrical?

I have an 2000 RS coupe. Over the past winter I went to open the sunroof and smelled a burning smell. After that the sunroof and power windows stopped working. I've checked fuses replaced the window relay as well as the circuit breaker. I currently have the door panel and headliner down. Looking to pay either a local member or if anyone can recommend a fair mechanic to track down the short that's good with electrical in the Billerica Lowell area.

Depending on if you are willing to take a short ride to Woburn, Alberto at Motive Autoworks is good with Subarus and general repairs. Electrical issues shouldn't be a problem

Where was the smell coming from? If you trace the wires you'll probably find some melted wires somewhere. You can also buy a cheap multimeter and start checking where you lose power and eliminate sections of wiring as the issue. Find a wiring diagram and see what those circuits connect to and work from there.

Thanks for the suggestion I stopped by Motive today I think I'm going to drop it off next week. The smell was coming from above the headliner when it happened but I wasn't able to track it down and have just lost patience trying to figure this out myself
