1996 Acura Sunroof closing problem

Hi, Thanks for responding. You asked if I was any good with a Multi Meter cause you thought it might be the switch. Good Call! I have a multi meter but I can't say I'm a veteran user. I can follow instructions. What you got?

Ok first thing I need you to do is pop the switch out of the dash. Then take a paper clip and slide it into the the back of the connector to check voltage from the power wire which would be the Green Wire.
You will get voltage from that. That is the power wire to the switch

Now do the same and back-probe the red/green wire. While pressing the switch to open measure the amount of voltage you are getting. It should be around 12v.

All this should check out and be ok.

Now back-probe the green/yellow wire. Press close on the switch and measure your voltage. Repeat this several times. If you arnt getting around 12v then the switch is your problem.

If you arnt getting around 12v back-probe the green wire agen and also the green/yellow wire. Switch you your multimeter to read ohams. Measure the resistance of the switch when it is open. It should be infianet resistance. Now press close and the switch should read .1-.3 ohams.

If the switch is good let me know.

I think the problem is in the switch. Built up resistance is the logical call and it is easy to check. If the switch is ok let me know.

Sunroof is stuck

If the tracks for the sunroof aren't cleaned and lubed regularly they can bind and sometimes, they'll come off track. It could also be that the regulator broke. Did you try to open it with the manual hand tool? If it opens smoothly with that then it is probably the motor. If it binds or is very noisy when using the hand crank it may be the cable (regulator). If you can get it open with the hand crank, spray the tracks and any linkage you can see with some WD-40 or silicone spray, then try the switch again.

My electric sunroof has stopped working on my vw golf 1999 1.4. It opened half way on its accord when I locked the car and stopped half way. Now it does not want to open nor close. Last week it worked fine...

Usually, when a part of car that is run by battery failed, first
thing to check is the FUSE from the main fuse box or
a fuse box somewhere under the hood. Next is to locate the
motor that drives the sunroof and have a qualified electrical
mechanic check the motor, If the fuse is Ok, and still
stopping, then check motor and you may find that only the
carbon is the problem. If still the carbon is ok and the
sunroof still stop, you may ask the mechanic to check and
test the "Stator" and "Rotor" that has failed and may require
rewinding of the coil wire.

Sunroof info

There should be a switch for the sunroof on the left end of the dashboard panel. Push it up to close it and down to open it. It's a 'rocker-type' switch that says ROOF on it.
