My sunroof has opened and now it won't close. Any clues?
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4x4, 6 cyl, with a sunroof. A few months ago, I thought the motor died on it as I could not longer open it.Well, today, after the battery had been disconnected for a while doing somework on it, we hooked the battery back up and all the sudden, the sun roofopened. the motor continued running as if the sunroof was not yet all the way opened. We finally had to disconnect the battery again for bit to get themotor to go off. Now, the motor is no longer running but the sunroof is STUCK in the OPEN position. Can someone help us on how to get it shut???

You will have to remove the sunroof motor, and the sunroof glass. Then you can move the guide tracks seperately until they are in the closed position. Then you can put the glass and motor back in, remove the power source (fuse or disconnect wire harness) to prevent any accidental opening until you can get it fixed. Chances are that a guide track or cable is broken, this can be a costly fix. Do not take it to the dealership, they will only want to install a whole sunroof unit. Take it to a local shop that installs aftermarket sunroofs

Hi, as a general point on sunroofs I have known the white grease used on them to go hard after time and cause them to go tight. Flushing the Runners with a good penetrating oil whilst working the sunroof back and forward can help to free them off, sometimes giving the roof a hand will help to get them moving. jon

Definitely, you'll have to take a look to see if any obstruction is visible. To check the fuses first you'll need to find them. The fuse block cover shouldillustrate what each fuse is for. You can visibly check the fuses, with a flashlight. Just take a look at the sunroof fuse and check that its not burned. That the metal inside goes from one side to the other and its not burned or broken. You can use a test light or a multimeter, a test-light will do. I usually check them visibly, its obvious when you have a blown fuse just by looking at it. Its better just to pull out the suspected fuse to check it.
adding If you are getting correct pulses to the injectors, you can try 3oz of acetone and 1oz of marvel oil to each 10 gal of gas your fuel for the next few fill-ups...this will safely clean injector nozzles, providing they aren't worn out or internally binding.Your injectors are triggered by the computer, so check the plugs and wiring to make sure nothing is loose or shorting. There is much more to this, but it's a good place to begin.
hi sounds like a faulty sunroof relay keeping the motor running it may well have blown the fuse or burned the motor out if you connected it back up and it doesn,t work at all but should be able to turn the sunroof back manually look on the sunroof motor there should be sometthing like a slot for a large screwdriver or a bolt head of sorts just wind it back and then check the relays and fuses if your switch is a electronic one make a make shift one and try [simple switch]on and off as this is delicate circiutery and the slightest short can destroy it best of luck yates210456
