If the roof is stucked up pull at the rubber lining around the inside of the sunroof (the one that seems like its just for looks) near the control button. then pull down on the inner roof cover and you'll see the back of the control button. there is an electrical connection there. see if it has come apart,. also check out if the motor of the roof control is spinning.if it is not spinning then replace the motor to make it work.

How can i close the sunroof on a 2002 chevy

check the 25 A breaker (PWR WDO) in fuse block I/P
if the driver power window is working your breaker is ok
check terminal B of the connector 2( pink wire) of the sunroof control module for 12 volts. check terminal D connector 2 of the sunroof control module(black wire) for a good ground. If the sunroof does not work with the switch you could jumper the power to the motor. You could try jumping terminal B to terminal A ( dark green wire) and jumping terminal D to terminal C (dark blue). If the sunroof goes the wrong way, change terminal B to terminal C and terminal D to terminal A. If it doesnot work the motor is dead.

1998 golf gti vr6 power sunroof doesn't close when i turn key at the door

Check your wires and fuses, I am having a similar problem myself as the windows open, but not the sunroof and this is a feature that VW had on most of these models with power locks, even my 96 Gti did it. I will repost with what fixed it ASAP.

Where is the fuse box located in/on a 1998 chevy calvalier?

Sir: I have a 1998 Cavalier. The fuses are located at the end of the dash on the drivers side, where the driver's door goes up against the dash when you close it. The plastic panel has a little notch to pull it open. Its molded into the plastic... "Fuses". Glad to be of help.

When I start my 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier the dome light goes on & will not shut off while the car is on, when you stop & shut the motor off it goes off after about 5 minutes. Any ideas on how to...

Sounds like your door switch is acting up, in most cases it is the drivers door that is doing it, do you have a light on the dash that says the door is open, some cars have it and some don't. i have seen the switches wear out after alot of use.

What size tires should you put on a 98 cavalier

If you open your drivers door and inspect the side of it or the door-jam in that location it should tell you on a white label about 4" by 4"
If not, typically is if 4-door 195 70 14 or 195 65 15's for the 2-door as is a heavier car.
Something like that.
