You may have something binding or stuck. Sometimes the track will get out of place or jammed and this can break a piece of plastic off and cause problems. Perhaps the motor has failed.

You will not be able to move it manually, unless you can access the moonroof motor, by lowering the headliner. Using a 5/32" allenwrench, you should be able to close the sunrrof, but if you force it may do more damage. If the motor is inop, this may work for you.

Try looking into the tracks of the sunroof with a flashlight, see if anything is laying in the channel or looks obviously out of place. Good luck

Here's a description the sun roof
Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof module
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor, with 2 hall effect sensors and limit switch
• Sunroof window
• Sunroof sunshade panel
• Power supply for the sunroof module: RAP 25 A
• Ground G402

The override function is used when needing to force a closing of the sunroof window. To override the system:
Turn ignition to ON.
Rotate the sunroof switch to the close position.
Press upward.
The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. As long as the sunroof module sees this input, it will continue to slide the sunroof window to close, regardless of the other sunroof switch data circuits inputs.

Ford escape 2014 power moon roof barely tilts open

This is normal. The reason it raises higher is due to the design of the sliding arms in the moon roof. without going into too much detail, the reason it raises before closing is to "unlock" itself from from the "Locked" open Position in order to get to the "Locked" closed position. Its a fancy way of making it seal well when closed and not rattle when open

2009 F-150 moon roof stuck open/motor works

There should be some way to manually close it. Look at the owners manual for help. All Power roofs that I have seen, has a small trim cover hiding a bolt or something like that. All it takes is an Allen wench or socket to crank on and close it. For more details

My wifes electric sunroof on her 2001 Ford expedition will not close. How do i fix this?

it has no emergency closing procedure. It could be the switch, the motor or the module. The latter 2 are on the moon roof and you have to lower the headliner for access.

Try to by pass the switch. Before you do anything, check the fuse.

check 30 amp green maxi fuse in fuse box under hood. just above 2 rows of 4 fuses in middle.
