Thanks for the reply.
Things are good.
Haven't done a recent resting draw reading but last i did as explained, the reading was more like 0.07-0.08 versus 0.05.
So he mentioned checking with that relay pulled out, yet I'm not certain where the relay is or what else it affects if I pull it.

Yep, it is not likely the PM DC motor itself is bad...

What I was suggesting as book said, was that if sunroof module off line in grid, theft module will stay awake. So that needs to be checked out. If it is not getting a feedback to theft module, amd draw will stay awake and never go to sleep cuz antitheft module is checking that out on mux line

8W 10 16. for accessory relay.

8w 10 16. Think of a car manual as a road map, 8w references to section of car, middle # is for subsection, last digit for gps of test point. I hope that made sense.
