The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.
Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.
There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)
The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.
If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.
This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.
Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.
To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.
3 bolts hold the motor up.
With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.
Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.
Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

Can't say for sure about this particular model, but most vehicles with sunroofs have a manual crank for situations like this. Generally it is located forward of the sunroof on the roof of the interior of the car, sometimes under a panel or interior light. This at least will get the roof closed until the problem can be fixed. It may also allow the sun roof to realign itself and help the electric crank to start working again.

Sounds like sunroof is stuck, motor can't overcome load. Cheap test: car off, interior light turned on try to move sunroof, does light dim? If yes motor is trying to move but can't. If light does not dim then motor not getting power.
