usually the whole cruise control portion needs to be replaced. if changing the fuses didnt work its an electrical thing that the dealer can only mess with. sunroof are tricky, your gonna have to take it to a tint alarm place or someone who installs them. it maybe simple...or the motor is burned out on it. you can have tons of power to it but if the motor is burnt it will be dead as a door knob and wont open the roof.
CHECK SUNROOF FUSE.IF FUSE IS GOOD POWER GOING TO SUN ROOF MOTOR.THE MOTOR IS BAD OR SUNROOF IS BINDING NEED ADJUSTING.IF NO POWER GOING TO SUNROOF MOTOR FUSE IS GOOD.YOU GOT BROKE OR LOOSE WIRE FROM FUSE BOX TO SUNROOF SWITCH.OR BROKE WIRE OR LOOSE WIRE AT THE SWITCH.
I have built, repaired and installed sunroofs for 20 years. Its hard to tell what problem is, so many variations for motors with relays, cams, programed circuit boards. To get the roof closed you can drop motor usually 3 screws then pull glass forward as far as you can, then from inside of truck you will have to take a screw driver and finish sliding cable forward somehow. When sliding by hand watch on the inside to see what parts are moving so you can finish sliding forward. Hope this helps.
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.
Just got mine closed on 2001 expedition sunroof. After removing all Phillips and hex head screws and clips and unplugging the side and rear lights the headliner came right out. Yes it takes a bit of time but once clear I was able to take a hex head to the motor and begin to close it a bit and then tried it with the button and it closed. After trying it several times to make sure it was working I put everything back up and although now short one JC bar screw it is finished. I read that sometimes the motor goes back too far and locks itself out from going forward. Good luck and it is a wee bit cheaper than going to a dealership and pay someone to do it and pay their overhead/profits.
check your fuse in position 38 in the fuse box....this fuse is for the car's alarm system but also seems to work the sunroof, I have a problem with this fuse when its not blown the sunroof opens with no problems but when it blows the roof will not open I am not sure how they are tied in together but they are....so I would say that you have an electrical issue....do not replace the motor until you check this first
The motor is accessed after removing the interior roof light console. I have to warn you that Freelander sunroofs have a lot of problems. To change the motor, I think you will have to remove the roof lining as well with all that entails. The Land Rover Workshop manual has all the detail whereas the Haynes manual does not.

in all sun roofs on most vehicles there is a motor that operates the unit. now green wire can indicate a ground, however they can also indicate a power source like for a tail light green is used for the right turn signal circuit. to be sure use a test probe to check for voltage to that wire if it lights up it's a constant current circuit. if the light doesn't come on turn the ignition and check once more. if the light comes on than it's an auxillary circuit. if there is no fuse then there might be a relay for your sun roof circuit. check the power distribution box. your owners manual will show you exactly where that relay is located in the box under the hood. in most newer vehicles they do not use fuses for electric motors for functions in the car but a relay to protect the circuit. check all this first before connecting that green wire. if ther problem still persists then contact me again and i will help with other possiblities
