This looks like a power issue at the switches..need to check fuses and circuit breakers first and then see if there is power to the switches. if not you may be able to remove the switch setup out of the car door and if possible power it up with a battery charger strong enough to close the window..(motor buzzing will tell you if the charger will work or not) if you dont think you can do that, check with a custom car shop who may assist you in closing the window(let them know it may be an electrical switch issue) good luck

SOURCE: sunroof will not close

If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.

How do i close the sunroof on my 1999 toyota camry? it is stuck open with the bottom shade stuck.


you may have to strip out the roof lining to gain access to the sunroof component if you cant pull the sun visor free , dont keep pressing the power button as could at the least blow the fuse , at worst burn out the motor

Okay....the sunrood will open but will not close. Do I need a new switch or part?


I have a 1992 4 runner that had the same problem. I had completely stripped out the manual close screw because friends kept opening it thinking it was the light switch.
There is a safety switch you have to push to make the sunroof open. Mine had broken inside and the plastic piece was keeping the close switch from completing the circuit. A relatively easy fix for an incredibly annoying problem.

Sun Roof won't open


There may be a way to open the sunroof manually by turning the motor with a tool. The motor could be broken and "free spinning" or it could be off track or something is stuck in the track. You just need to take it apart starting with the interior trim the rest should be pretty self explanitory. You may also be able to find a diagram on www.autozone.com.
