Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brakes lights and shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push the switches with your finger. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector.

Did you ever solve this issue? My Audi has the same problem on the driver's side part of the sunroof, but after spending some time on it, I discovered the exact problem. There are many parts responsible for the retraction/closing of the sunroof, but the main part is the pulling mechanism that pulls the wheel mechanism along the track that in turn pulls the levers and window. On my Audi, the pulling mechanism has broken off from the wheel mechanism. Thus, even if you manually operate the sunroof with the allen wrench, it still won't close. I have not yet decided whether this must be fixed by a professional mechanic, or if I can simply superglue the two pieces back together.

If this occured after trying to close the shade while the moonroof was opening, it is possible that the plastic tab that locks into the vent (and subsequently the rest of the moonroof) has been bent. I was having a similar problem where my vent would only go up on one side and stay closed on the other (and it would sometimes get stuck open). It would also prevent the rest of the moonroof from opening up. If this is the case, from what I can tell, there is no easy fix for this. Upon researching this problem, you are the only other person asking about it and zero fixes. For the time being, the vent can be closed by lifting up on one side to "unlock" the stuck tab and you should be able to put it down. After that, you should look up instructions to remove your moonroof glass to see if you can inspect the affected area to determine the cause. Here is a link that shows you how to remove the moonroof glass, but does not address the exact issue you describe.
