It is extremely hard to find part if you do the RDM is going to be around $3000. I would get a second opinion before I spend that kind of money. What does the DIC say when you try operating the roof?

I no longer trust any dealership to properly diagnose an RDM. Generally speaking, the GM dealers no longer have the ability or desire to troubleshoot that system on the SSR.

Here are some key RDM Questions that you need to answer:
1) Do the windows operate?
2) Does the cargo cover open?
3) Do the door locks work?
4) Does the air conditioning work?

If all four of the above are problematic with a non-working top, you may have a bad RDM. There are technical troubleshooting steps that can be followed after this, but I’m not gonna get into the weeds in messaging on the forum.

If key questions 1-4 are NOT problematic, you need to give us the symptoms…… what does the display in the instrument cluster display when you try to transition the top?

Door Locks ----- I may be mistaken but i don't think they are connected to the RDM and thus they will function properly without a functioning RDM.
Looking at the door lock function from the console switch versus the key fob - will indicate a console switch issue.

It's a couple hundred miles south from you, but the Cincinnatti fanatic crew can probably help you with your roof problem. I think they are even getting together the 26th to work on one so you could catch them together then.
What about it @Firetruck ?
We can definitely check the physical part of the roof but it looks like some other questions need answered first. But bring it down Sunday and we can certainly help diagnose.

The Door Locks were the only item that functioned on that list when I purchased my truck. The seller told me the guy he bought it from said it needed to have a relay replaced, and... I believed him. That relay turned out to be an RDM.

Watch out for that Cincinnati crew they fix things well but they've been known to use bad language and sometimes go as far as consuming alcohol at the end.
