02 Nissan Altima Sunroof won't work

Never had a problembefore. Sunroof will not open. I tried to reset according to Nissan manual without any luck. I change the battery in the car over the winter. Owner's Manual says this may require resetting the sunroof by holding the switch down in the close position continouesly, but I have had no success. Checked all fuses under dash & engine compartment and all are OK. Suspect possible switch is dead but have no way to test switch. Any Ideas ????

    Are there any power modules or anything else that might control power to the sunroof in the fuse block that is located in the engine compartment. There are no fuses in either location that are labeled for the sunroof.

My dome light dosen't turn on when my doors open, but I can turn it on manually. Altima has as sunroof.

The door switch isn't making a ground necessary to make the bulb work. If it's just one door, look at replacing the door switch. If none of the doors will work the light, then look at the body control module.

Nissan altima sunroof wont close all the way. It closes, but the rear of the window doesnt lift to create the seal at the back of the window. Any suggestions?

With the car OFF and sunroof OPEN inspect all around the sunroof's frame. If nothing found that might be in the way (rocks, twigs, etc.), turn on the car CLOSE the sunroof and see if you can push it UP while closing to 'help it'. If it works, I'd just leave it closed 'til you can take it to the dealer/shop to fix it.
