Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

My sunroof will not close all the way on a 2001 Sunfire

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire with an automatic sunroof. The moter still works and everything, but it will not close entirely anymore. it stays open about an inch or two. I just want to get it so that it is closed all the way. I don't even care if I can still use it. Nothing appears to be blocking the sunroof to keep it from closing all the way or opening all the way. So any information on this would be helpful. Thank you.

    Ok I am care illiterate and don't know where to look for either one of those things. I don't see any teeth on the track. It just slides back and forth over a greased track. As for the motor, I have no idea where it is let alone what a limiter switch looks like. So I would need a little more info on what to go on.

Check the track to see if there are any damaged or worn teeth that made it jump out just a bit if so replace, also look for the limiter switch on the motor to make sure it didn't get bent a bent switchwill stop it prematurely if not you can re adjust it. if helpful please rate

More than likely you have a defective electric sun roof drive motor. remove the cover on the motor and tap it with hammer handle, if it starts working you need to replace it.

You are going to have to tear it apart, chances are something in the operating mechanism is broken and until that is fixed you are stuck.
