Sounds to me like either the switch went bad or it is stuck in the position where it opens the sunroof. the clicking sound you hear is probably the motor that opens the sunroof has power to it yet and the plastic gears are jumping across each other. See if the switch is stuck in the open position.

Check if the sunroof sliding mechanism is ok and that there is nothing blocking. Could be a sand particle that prevents it from smooth slide.
Failing this, check with a mechanic.

SOURCE: Hi there, My 1997 Toyota

hi this could be a couple of things, first thing i would look at is the relay for the sunroof, locate the relay either in the fuse box, or around where the sunroof button is, and replace it, this should be very cheap, some cars have an emergency hand winding system if the sunroof gets stuck open, its normally under a cover on the roof lining in the front, just use that to close it, and then it might actually work after as this might just be a stuck cable, but if its a broken cable this could work out expensive to get repaired...but check out the first two things and see how you get on...hope this helps

SOURCE: sunroof will not close

If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.

Is there any debris in the track of the window especially towards the front. Thew clicking sound you are hearing may be worn gears in the drivve assembly of the window/power roof mechanism. Is there a limit switch for the sunroof? This may be bad also. Check the easy stuff first and get back with me.

KA sunroof won't open


sunroofs are a total pain to work on and are very delicate as to moving parts and adjustments. if you are not really mechanically inclined I would not mess with it. take it to a technician if you can afford it. If you think you can work on an intricate and sensitive mechanism and realize that once you get into it it may not close anymore then go ahead. If it is closed now I would just act like you don't have a sunroof anymore and leave it alone, lucky it is not locked in the open position. If you insist on working on it yourself you can remove the glass easily enough by looking into the opening from the inside and remove screws, should be four, 2 each side front and back. after removing the screws you can see most everything from the roof side and tell if something is out of place or debris is interrupting operation. good luck, you are going to need it.

My sunroof won't close


Some sunroofs have a open switch like the drivers window. You push it and the window will open automaticly. The button on your sunroof could be jammed so even though you can close it as soon as you release it, it will auto open on it's own.

Sunroof won't close


Hey Paul, there are limit switches integrated into the motor on your sunroof, usually if it stops completely its because it detected a restriction, such as leaves, or dirt, if there are no visual sign then with the key on hold the switch to the full open position for 10-12 sec then hold it in the close position for the same, cycle the key and see if it reset. The motor can fail as well but it's not very common.. Do u hear any clicking from the motor area when this occurs, also check all fuses to be safe as well,..

most of the time on those sun roofs when you hear the clicking noise coming from the headliner when trying to open or close your sunroof and you have to help it move that clicking is the gear in the motor skipping ,I just fixed one on an infinity the other day that was doing the same thing ,the plastic gear gets worn down and will not grab any longer ,hope this helps!

Sunroof will not close


When you press the button do you hear any noise coming from the sunroof? If not and you say you check the fuses then more the likely the motor burned out and you will have to replace it. But if you hear noise coming from the sunroof it may be that the sunroof came off track or is simply jammed for some reason.
