No Power to Windows or sunroofs

Hello everyone,
I have a 2001 OB limited auto 2.5. I put in a remote starter into the car and acquired an issue in the process.This starter/alarm does not deal with the windows or roofs in any way.There was one single issue in the install, the starter side of the unit on the IGN 2 was dropping voltage completely at startup using it to start, the IGN 1 wire did not (after much frustration, then realizing this) I in turn switched them and I have no issues.
In buttoning things back up I noticed I have no power to all glass, I started this project yesterday, no issue, this morning no issue and after the resolve during midday I noticed this, all bus fuses were checked and are ok in both boxes, and the 30 amp fuse to the main box under the hood I checked with an ohm meter , its fine...theres no power to any of them (all doors seperatly and drivers door) , so my question is what component do they all share and where is this as the pdfs of the manual that I have are not specific to what Im looking for to resolve this, all other electronics are ok in the car and no fuses or issues surfaced other than that mentioned, if anyone can help Id be very appreciative....thanks.

I have something similar going on with a 02' outback. The power windows work but the sunroof doesn't have any power. I checked the fuses you mentioned and they all seem good. There is also no error lights on at the dash panel at all

Do the vanity lights (in the sun visor mirrors) work?
Does the room light (ceiling light) work?
Do the map lights work?

These are all powered through the same 6-pin connector as the sunroof. If these work, then it suggests that the connector is probably intact.

Have you checked for power to the sunroof control?
Yeah all those other things you me mentioned all work, does this mean it could be the sunroof motor? Is there one motor or two?

Or ever a bad connection?

Partially solved the caper.

The seat heaters harnesses were just unplugged.

The sunroof harness was also unplugged and now when I open it just the back one opens and not the front. The back one functions perfectly fine but the front doesn't move. Anyone know why?
