Question about Nissan Pathfinder
First, remove the sunroof switch and test it out with a multimeter for continuity. If you are not getting power to the sunroof switch then replace the switch with a new one (do this first) Next, remove the drivers panel under the steering wheel and above the fuse block you will see three relays, and above those you will see three more relays. The round one in the middle is a circuit breaker for the sunroof. It should be round and have a hole in the center of it that you can stick a toothpick in to reset it. After you reset it and the sunroof is not working then you need to replace that relay with a new one (try this second) After you replace it and it still does not work then you will have to access the electric sunroof motor and check the motor power wire with a multimeter. If you are not getting power to the positive red wire then you will need to replace the sunroof motor (try this last)

Circuits just have to be traced with a test light.
You need to see if there is power going into the switch, coming out of the switch only when it is on, and if it arrives at the motor. The motor also needs a good ground.

Easy way to test if the switch is working is to keep the interior light on and work the switch open/closed position and see if the interior light dims a little...if it does the switch is working, the power sunroof motor is culprit, go to auto barn and ask if they have a blow up of the motor as well as a price to buy one.
If the switch doesn't dim the lights the switch is either burnt out or the power sunroof relay is bad, should be located in the engine compartments plastic realy/fuse box rectangular shaped, unclip the top and the inside of the lid cover should have everything listed.... as far as a DIY repair on the motor or switch ...I don't recommend it but if you do you may find repair manuals in AllData.com or the public library and a photo copy of the repair pages.
