SOURCE: 85 Toyota Cressida. The Sun roof is stuck open!

I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!

SOURCE: Sun Roof won't open

There may be a way to open the sunroof manually by turning the motor with a tool. The motor could be broken and "free spinning" or it could be off track or something is stuck in the track. You just need to take it apart starting with the interior trim the rest should be pretty self explanitory. You may also be able to find a diagram on www.autozone.com.

SOURCE: 2002 pt cruiser sunroof wont open.

sound to me that you are having a short in the dash with the radio and sun roof . check the relay see if it gets hot when you open the roof. trase the lines and make sure the two are not wired together.

Power moonroof won t open


i presume it is electrical , have you checked the fuse if ok in the hand book will be a section saying how to open manually.do this very carefully as if roof not been opened for a while the control wires to and from motor can be corroded if you get roof slightly open spray something like WD 40 along the runners at each side leave to soak for a few mins and repeat process when roof can be wound open/shut smoothly try the motor again ,i know this is a bit labourious but beter than a blown motor or damaged mechanisn

Sounds like the motor is worn out try applying some finger pressure on the sun roof and actuate the closer button and it should close it until you can pull your roof panneling back to expose the motor to be change

Manually close sienna moonroof


not sure if a manual close is possible

if weather is an immediate problem some perspex and duct tape is a good solution

best locate the motor and remove the motor or get 12 volts to it
see if it moves

the motor ( 14 ) is towards the front of the sunroof up behind the plastic roof moulding

In order to find out what's causing the problem, the headliner must be dropped (removed) to access the sunroof motor so it can be inspected and removed to inspect the slide cables up inside the sunroof/moonroof assy. Until that's done, there's not much more I can do to help except speculate.

My 2002 toyota sequia sun roof won't open. I hear relay click when I push button. But roof won't move. The fuse is good, I checked it and also replaced it.


Hello.
It sounds like you may have a bad motor, often when a motor is weak you will hear clicking.

Good luck!

I opened my moonroof on my 1995 Honda Civic EX and now, when I push the button to close it, I hear the system revving, trying to close it, but it won't close.


Either it' has not been used in some time and needs to be cleaned and lubricated or the motor for the moon roof is gone .....you can also check the side of the moon roofs motor to see if you can turn it up some to make it go faster ....hope it helps you out ...if not ...change the moon roofs motor

Moon roof is not closing properly


you are having a problem with either your power switch which opens and closes the moonroof. or either you may in fact have a motor problem with moonroof. check to see if you may have an electrical short in your system. also you also may have something wrong with your moonroof sliding armature.

My escort power hood stopped working


If you hear the motor then you can almost certainly rule out electrical issues, it souonds more likely that the roof panel or drive mechanism is jammed or stuck, If the roof is closed then push up on the rear of the sunroof and see if it "pops up" a bit then while still pushing up hit the button to open.If it is anywhere in between open and closed try pushing it open or pulling it closed while you are pushing the button,if it moves inspect the tracks and lubricate
