Sliding/tilt sunroof Anti-trap Malfunction

About a month ago, my sunroof and shade stopped working. They are both currently in the closed position. No matter what I've tried, nothing is working. I've tried to reset the module by holding the tilt button for over 2 minutes but nothing happen. I hear a little whirring sound but nothing happens. Even the shade does not work. On the idrive, I see both the "deactivated" and "malfunction" error. Besides take her to the stealership, does anyone have any idea what else I can try? Thank you.

The problem with my sunroof goes back to when the car came off the assembly line. The passenger side drain plug was never connected to the drain hole. It was still tied up to the frame of the roof. I went to a certified BMW specialty shop and they fixed the issue for $130.00. The good thing is that the previous owner used the car as his vacation vehicle for 7 years only drove 8k miles and the car stayed in the garage a good portion of its life.
