I own a 2006 DTS and I needed to replace the Sunroof. I bought one that came out of 2009. The sunroof
fit well and the plug/wiring seemed to be fined but roof will not function and I know the 2009 roof worked fine.
Apparently they changed the supplier of the roof so 2006-2008 had one model of sunroof and 2009-2011 and different
model. Does anyone know what can be done to make the 2009 roof operate in the 2006 DTS?

Why did you have to replace the original sunroof? Have you checked the switch?

The old roof worked, just very poorly, the track was messed up...you could hear the motor running though so I do not believe the switch is a factor.

Over time the screws loosen up check and see if a screw fell out and is in the track.

Yep - check the four side rail bolts (# 2) that adjust/retain the glass. Those 4 bolts work loose over time, the glass shifts position and jams the slider.

The glass should be level with the roofline in front, level to +0.5mm at the rear.
