Default Volvo 850 1996 sunroof problem

Hello all. I have a volvo 850 1996 with a electric sunroof. I was having problem with opening and closing the sunroof, it was the motor and some other things. I had to take it all out. Now it`s back in the car and it`s working again. But, it`s acting funny when I close it. When I push the button the roof closes but goes all the way up by it self, it`s not stoping at the roof line. I have to adjust it with the button when I close it to have it on the roof line. Have I done something wrong when I asebled it? or is this normal? can the control module be broken?

Thank you for any help.

Programming is off. I'd close it, drop the motor, run it closed until it stops, the install the motor and see if that helps.
