2003 Kia sorento sunroof- my sunroof is stuck in tilt mode.when I press any of the buttons,it makes a very loud rattling noise. I read somewhere to hold button down for 30 seconds,now its not making loud...

I had this problem and began looking into the solution above, instead we noticed that the motor was really loose. All it needed was to be tightened. We removed the light cover and the entire electronics box to see the motor, which was just two screws then it popped off. Then tightened the two sunroof motor screws, and it worked like new.

2006 honda ridgeline sunroof is stuck, will nor close tightly

Most common problem for sunroofs is debris like acorns, twigs, ect stuck in the track on the sunroof. Also, check for bent warped, or other out of place things causing the sunroof to reach it's limit causing it to shut down before closed completely. Remember, power windows, sunroofs, back glasses, nearly everything powered by an electric motor has a limit switch to protect if from damage.

Bougth an 08 Sonata new with sunroof.... from day 1 sunroof rattles with slider open. Hyundai has treid to fix it twice but can't. Meeting dist. mgr next month.... have spent over 2 yrs. with this...

First you wouldn't sell it, unless you own it outright,don't like it or want to spend cash on another vehicle,so you can start watching it depreciate from day one.

Have you asked the dealer to bring in a factory field rep to work on it or assist the dealer techs?

Have they considered getting authorization to just replace the entire sunroof? Not eveyone with that vehicle could be having the same issues.

In the end you will be figuring it out yourself,after the warrantee expires. Been there. That is why I have done all my own repairs since 1963. 47 years

My sunroof will not open. It will pop up and down but will not slide back. Someone told me there is a fuse for the sunroof, but I cannot find one.

if it pops open then its not a fuse,its getting power if it pops open, the common problem with these maximas is that the retract arm that opens sunroof breaks and the only way to repair this is to replace the sunroof track.

Sunroofs open unexpectedly on their own.

All power windows and sunroofs are controlled through a central module located behind the glovebox. The window problem is very common and is the result of a bad solder joint within the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The sunroof problem is tied to the same unit, commonly caused by water intrusion into the unit. Is your passenger side footwell carpet wet?
