2011 kia optima sunroof won't close

Just bought the car less than a week ago, so it is used but has less then 20k miles. Problem is that the sunroof closes mostly all the way and then reverses itself back to half open. from there everything else functions but if you try to close it again it just does the same thing. Not to familiar with how they are supposed to look but I did check out the tracks and everything seemed ok. anyone got any advice.

SOURCE: Sunroof won't close

clean the runners on the sunroof watching out for trapped debris. try lubricating the runners with a fine lubricant with a clothe, make sure no debris caught in motor also.

SOURCE: My sunroof has opened and now it won't close. Any clues?

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

SOURCE: sunroof will not close

When you press the button do you hear any noise coming from the sunroof? If not and you say you check the fuses then more the likely the motor burned out and you will have to replace it. But if you hear noise coming from the sunroof it may be that the sunroof came off track or is simply jammed for some reason.

SOURCE: 1992 Volvo 940 Gl Sunroof Problem

to find out if it is off its track you can remove the cover between the rearview and the sunroof that is the motor/drive assembly. there is a slotted pin in this assemply that you turn with a screwdriver to move the sunroof manually if it wont move manually then you have a bigger issue. sometimes thie drive assembly screws get loose, i believe there are two screws that hold it up,when those are loose you will get a grinding sound when the gears skip. good luck.

SOURCE: 1998 Audi A6 sunroof is will close only half way.

make it go back to the open position,look down the side of the tracks in the roof that the sun shade slides in and you will probable find the guides for the sunshade are jamming up the tracks. only way to replace them<4 one in each corner> is to remove the glass section and then close sunshade that will give access to the 4 guides which are available from dealer as a kit

I have a 2011 Kia Optima with 130000 miles on it. I go through 4 quarts of oil before my 3000 mile oil change. I was wounding if there is any kind of recall or what can you suggest.


As the engine wears out oil slips past rings and valve seals the oil becomes blowby and the engine just uses oil. It does not have to smoke to use oil.

Sunroof stuck open on 2004 kia optima. Where are fuses. Are there any inside?


Fuse should be labeled in fuse box under left side of dash board. If your main concern is getting it closed. Most Hyundai/Kias have a Spot to use a Allen wrench to open/close sunroof under the switch. First remove plastic bezel or sunglasse holder screw and panel should snap off. You should then see the Allen.
