I had the same problem with the sunroof controls, but eliminated the erradic behavior by accident when I disconnected and reconnected the battery for another problem. Maybe this will work for you too.

Your motor for the sunroof is out of time. needs to re retimed. There is a procedure to retime it, but I don't remember exactly as to how its done. Would need to look into it as to how EXACTLY its done. I know that the motor needs to be completely taken off the sunroof track and that you need to push the buttons in certian sequence to retime it and I don't have the sequence in my head, but thats the problem. The motor is out of time.

Had this problem all you have to do is actually open sunroof with tilt button all the way and then close it with tilt button to reset, then it should work with open switch. If you disconnect battery this happens and you have to reset it this way

2003 maxima sunroof won't close

Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.
