1. Are your alternator belt lose???
2. Sound like your alternator is not putting enough amp out at idle. Have someone check your alternator out.

SOURCE: 2003 kia sorento: sunroof stuck

remove the sun roof motor drive and close the sunroof manually, then reinstall motor, which by the way is the most likely part to cause this.

SOURCE: sunroof does not close

I can't tell you how to close it manually but I think you should do a couple of other things first.
Remember I am not there to help you and I am only trying to help so be kind with your rating of me if my ideas fail,
Check the fuses first. It may say sun roof on the diagram on the cover of thefuse box which is probably under the dash.
If it does not say sun roof i don't know what else it would be called.
Just check all the fuses one by one if the diagram doesn't help. You will be looking for a burnt fuse. there is a wire on the inside that will look melted oe burnt. replace it with the same amp type that came out of it. Keep checking the rest of the fuses even if you find a bad one. Sometimes more then one blows at the sametime. If all the fuses are good or your replaced a bad one and it still doesn't work then I will have you check the switch. Yo7u can take the switch out and pull the two wires off remembering where they went. There may be three wires but only pull two off at a time. You want to touch two together using different combinations until the roof closes or trys to move. if this works then it is your switch. Be sure to have the key on in the on position while testing this. it will not shock you so don't worry. If the ends of the switch wires are coverd then you will need to get a wire that you can bend and put in to the two ends conncting them to make a good circuit. The must touch metal to metal. If all the combinations fail then it may be a bad motor after all.
So these are my ideas, I hope I got lucky and saved you tons of cash, Raz

How do we disable the door ajar chime? My driver side KIA Spectra 2002 door won't fully close following a recent collision and between now and repairs, I'd like to disable the annoying chime or...

You have to pull the door panel off. Then there are a couple of plugs that go to the door latch mounted on the jam. One of the plugs is for the chime. Pull it, but you might have to put a jumper wire in the plug. I work on a lot of different cars and seen them work both ways. So I am not entirely sure how yours works. Unplug it and if it goes off your done. if it doesn't, use a jumper wire in the plug.
