My car was losing battery power without any warning got out of the car with the sunroof still all the way open, started raining got back into car and needed to shut it and it wouldnt go bc of the battery power being low.....it went to the final position before it seals and the back end would not close, so i had to push it closed to save my interior from being soaked! needless to say the motor seems to still work but when i push the button to open it the back half opens, but it will not slide back making a clicking noise....what should i do? do you think that the gears are just out of alignment or do you think the entire motor is no good??? let me know what you think! thanks!

A control module is used to operate the sunroof an if a alternative power supply isn't used so modules don't lose there memory they can go dead . The only way in most cases to get it working again is a trip to the dealer where they have factory scan tool to communicate with it ! Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems
On Rovers, if the battery is disconnected or the truck otherwise looses power, the windows have to be opened and closed completely to allow the computer to learn the normal travel of each. Sunroof too if equipped. Should be in your owners manual which is a must have.
find the wires to the sunroof and strip them and find another power source perferaby the cars battery it would work but once closed leave it closed, you have a bad relay and no power going to the sunroof motor, this usally happens when used vigorously
first the easy problem is the blower. it has a faulty resistor. it works on 4 because 4 bypasses the resistor to give you full power.
the sunroof sounds like you've got a shorted wire somewhere. the open power wire has to be shorted to a 12v power sorce. there should be a sunroof fuse. check the owners manual for it's location. but if the wire is shorted it may open without it. you may have to remove the headliner to unplug the sunroof motor itself.
Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof.
If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows.
If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker.
If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual.
If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.
You will have to remove the sunroof motor, and the sunroof glass. Then you can move the guide tracks seperately until they are in the closed position. Then you can put the glass and motor back in, remove the power source (fuse or disconnect wire harness) to prevent any accidental opening until you can get it fixed. Chances are that a guide track or cable is broken, this can be a costly fix. Do not take it to the dealership, they will only want to install a whole sunroof unit. Take it to a local shop that installs aftermarket sunroofs
