You are prescisely correct. The proximity sensors are now out of sync. Best to take this one to me or a dealer. The me part was a joke.
Make sure the repairman checks the condition of thr driver cable, sounds likt or the gears are worn.

1997 LandRover Discovery sun roofs will not open. Both motors run but will not engage.

It is probable that the linkages between the motor and its actuating mechanism and the roof panel are detached. If you push the retract button as far as it will go and then push the roof panel back you should be able to reconnect the actuator mechanism and the roof panel. Had the same problem on an old renault , both wheels had become detached, reconnected them ensuring the roof panel was square, i.e. in the same position on both sides, then reattach. I was able to push steel panel pins in to the wheels and that secured it for years.

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.

caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

Hi, if it's an electric one, if you take out the interior light to gain access to the motor you should see an Allen key slot in the motor. By winding it the correct way it will lower your sunroof back into the closed position.

Sun roof not closing on renault espace. when i move the switch to the closed position the sunroof closes then opens at the end

Had this problem with a laguna II 1.8 . Found the solution on the net as far as I can remember was to turn the switch all the way to the left and press the switch hold for 10 secs then turn the switch all the way to the right press and hold . the sunroof does a little dance and then closes. if it does not work try going right first

85 Toyota Cressida. The Sun roof is stuck open!

I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!
