Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1994 jeep grand cherokee sunroof is stuck open. Motor doesn't even work when button is switched on. Its going to start raining tonight and I need it closed. Any ideas how to manually shut it?

Also have several different intermittent electrical problems, The gear select light, reverse lights ( cannot get to work at all), information center display will work and out of no where either reset or go black, while driving it will feel like it drops a cylinder but if you push the overdrive off button it will stop momentarily. Do you think these are all related.

No
if 12v says at 12.6v key off and 13.3 to 15vd driving , power is good.
so no.
you can take the trim of the sun roof and disconnect linkage, and force it shut , or use bailing wire to keep it shut.

SOURCE: My sunroof has opened and now it won't close. Any clues?

You will have to remove the sunroof motor, and the sunroof glass. Then you can move the guide tracks seperately until they are in the closed position. Then you can put the glass and motor back in, remove the power source (fuse or disconnect wire harness) to prevent any accidental opening until you can get it fixed. Chances are that a guide track or cable is broken, this can be a costly fix. Do not take it to the dealership, they will only want to install a whole sunroof unit. Take it to a local shop that installs aftermarket sunroofs

hi sounds like a faulty sunroof relay keeping the motor running it may well have blown the fuse or burned the motor out if you connected it back up and it doesn,t work at all but should be able to turn the sunroof back manually look on the sunroof motor there should be sometthing like a slot for a large screwdriver or a bolt head of sorts just wind it back and then check the relays and fuses if your switch is a electronic one make a make shift one and try [simple switch]on and off as this is delicate circiutery and the slightest short can destroy it best of luck yates210456

Sounds like the ECM....the computer that controls all the electrical functions on the car is having some major issues or needs to be replaced. A auto repair or auto parts store should have a diagnostic machine that will tell you for sure or you can purchase one for between $50 and $150

SOURCE: My sunroof is stuck open on my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo? Would it be a fuse? If so, how do you change it?

Definitely, you'll have to take a look to see if any obstruction is visible. To check the fuses first you'll need to find them. The fuse block cover should illustrate what each fuse is for. You can visibly check the fuses, with a flashlight. Just take a look at the sunroof fuse and check that its not burned. That the metal inside goes from one side to the other and its not burned or broken. You can use a test light or a multimeter, a test-light will do. I usually check them visibly, its obvious when you have a blown fuse just by looking at it. Its better just to pull out the suspected fuse to check it.

I have a `99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a sunroof that won't close. It will open, but only close a few inches. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


Hi, as a general point on sunroofs I have known the white grease used on them to go hard after time and cause them to go tight. Flushing the Runners with a good penetrating oil whilst working the sunroof back and forward can help to free them off, sometimes giving the roof a hand will help to get them moving. jon

Check the fuses under the dash on the drivers side, next to the steering column. There should be a fuse puller on the fuse box door. Also a chart of which fuses at what so you can go to the proper fuse. Good luck, Please let me know if this is the solution to your problem.
