How do you reset sunroof in a 2001 Monte Carlo with 3400 model I


check fuse and relay if good than possible motor ot track problem their should be a mechanical bypass that will let you close it if stuck open the following information is courtesy of monte carlo forum
To check the condition of your original sunroof guides:
  1. Gl*** in closed position.
  2. Locate & remove 3 torx bolts on each side of sunroof glass. Lift glass out of sunroof opening & set aside in a safe place.
  3. Locate "J" shaped cover plate at front of sunroof track assembly. Remove 2 torx bolts from each cover plate.
  4. Lift up bracket to remove.
  5. Inspect the plastic guides on each side. The sunroof cables attach to guides on front outer corner. Inspect this area closely for damage.
  6. Do not operate the sunroof with the J plates removed.
Troubleshooting:
If the sunroof guides are not broken & the glass is a uniform height along the rear edge your problem may be a stripped gear inside the motor. The motor has a manual override:
  1. Get access to the motor by removing the map light/switch console or lowering the front of the headliner.
  2. Insert a large standard screwdriver into the nylon bushing at the center of the motor hub. Push up & turn the screwdriver to manually move the sunroof glass. If the unit will fully open & close manually, you most likely only need a replacement motor.

If your sunroof is stuck in the open position follow these steps to get it closed:
  1. Remove the glass.
  2. Try to close the unit without the glass. Many times one side will still be operational and close correctly.
  3. Try to slide the inoperable lift arm forward. If it moves, slide it forward until it stops.
  4. You now need to slide the original plastic guide forward to lower the arm to the closed position. Using a standard screwdriver, push it forward. The lift arm should begin to lower.
  5. If the lift arm will still not fully lower, remove the J plate as explained above, sometimes the sunroof cable will need to be lifted up to allow the guide to fully slide forward.
  6. Reinstall glass.

I have a 2003 monte carlo ss sun roof wont close and making popping noise


Sounds like the gears are bad in one spot. You can try to guide it closed with someone helping you as you pull or push it into place. Otherwise: http://www.theautopartsshop.com/auto+car-usa+parts/chevrolet+monte-carlo+sunroof-motor.html

My 2001 Monte Carlo SS sunroof will open just a little bit and then I hear a popping noise, when I go to close it, it closes really slow and wont close all the way. Is it off track? How do I fix this?


Try lubrication the glass run tracks with silicone spray. Use caution and keep it off other surfaces especially plastic parts as it will discolor them.

My monte carlo 2000 ss sunroof will not open or close or lift, but you can hear the motor for the roof


There is a regulator that has cables that move the window. It is at best a pain in the buut to replace, but not impossible. You should get a manual for this as there are a lot of parts to remove and replace. Well worth the $25.00 to get it right.

My 2002 monte carlo ss sunroof won't go all tha


Sounds like it is going off track whenever it gets to the popping sound point. Or its catching against something, Check to see if anything could be in the tracks of the sunroof. Hope this helps, James Booth. Let me know what happens
