Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
I replaced the sunroof motor and tried to open it well it open to a tilt the stop. Now it won't close or open and just makes a clicking noise when I try to open or close it
I'm not familiar with this particular model but it sounds like you ran the motor past the track limits. You will have to take it apart again and reset the motor onto the track, as well as reestablish the track limits for raising and lowering the sunroof. I'm not sure how familiar you are with doing this kind of work, but you would do well to get a factory shop manual in order to do it correctly.
It's not a particularly brilliant system. When you hit the switch, the motor will keep running until it hits the contact on the track that cuts the power. If it doesn't, or the contact is in the wrong place, it will run off the track and then just spin. This true for both directions. Did you notice either of these when you replaced the motor? The shop manual should be able to tell you how to set them correctly.

HAVE SAME PROBLEM ON MY ALERO , WOULD CLOSE TO VENT POSITION ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS WORKED FINE. TALKED TO A MECH. FRIEND AND FOUND A WAY TO CLOSE MANUALLY BUT YOU DO HAVE TO DROP FRONT LEFT CORNER OF HEADLINER.
THE MOTOR IS UNDER SUNVISOR AREA AND YOU'LL NEED AN ALLEN(SPELLING)SOCKET TO CLOSE ROOF
