Default 2001 PT Stuck Sunroof

Hello all. I've been all over the forum looking for an answer to my problem and have found more questions than answers.

My issue is that 2001 touring pt sunroof is stuck open. Not just open as normal but fully open further back then it does normally.

No, the fuse is not blown
Yes, I can hear the motor engaging when I push the button to close or open
No, I can not pull the sunroof back out it is really in there
No, there is nothing blocking the track

I have tried:
Having someone push the close button while I pull on the sunroof

Disconnecting the battery in hopes of resetting the sunroof module

Holding down the close button and open button for extended time to help the sunroof learn where it is

I tested the sunroof switch and it does work properly

My questions are:
Where is the sunroof module located?

Has anyone successfully hot-wired their stuck sunroof into closing or knows how to?

Does anyone have the schematic info for the sunroof system, all of my manuals seem to be lacking that info

Does anyone have the service information for a 2001 PT Touring Sunroof?

Do I really have to go to the dealer to get this fixed?

Please suggest away, I would like to avoid taking out the headliner if possible and I hate going to the dealers cause they always make you pay too much. Especially out here, they always quote me four times more than what it cost for me to do the repairs my self. My suspicion is that the sunroof module has gone bad and I have to replace it.
