For some reason the thing will not stay closed....for instance when you shut the vehicle off, it is suppose to full shut(and seal itself form water leaks) but mine closes, raises up shut tight, the lowers about a half inch or so, so water can leak in the back side of it.... while the vehicle is running and i shut it, it shuts completely tight, but if i roll down other windows it does the same thing...lower about a half inch.... so my question is.... is this a serious electricl problem through the car, or just a bad motor?

Re: 2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems
Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof.
If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows.
If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker.
If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual.
If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

Changing the sparkplugs has nothing to do with these lights, the trac control and stabilock would not be affected with just replacing sparkplugs, i assume the check engine light is not on since theres no mention of it , if the engine light were to be on then there may be a connection, the computer will turn off these systems if it turns on the check engine light for any reason, when the engine is not running as its suppose to the computer shuts down these systems because they can not operate correctly with a engine light on.

I have the same problem. I brought it to the local chevy dealer to run a test. The following is quoted from the chevy dealer. "The tech found that the circuit for speed#1 in the resistor was open and removed blower motor and found internal damage-will fail soon. Vehicle needs new blower motor and resistor parts and labor - $414.28." It makes sence but the lady in front of me was complaining about a $800 bill for a diagnostic that did not fix her problem. They where now asking for another $500 to take another shot at it.
Same problem on 06 Chevy equinox lt, Dealer said sunroof needed to get adjusted, its raining right now in San Diego and now the car wont start. water is in the same places, under the dash and floor mats. there is a bulletin posted for these cars about water leaking through several places, copy and paste the numbers along with the sign onto Google and its the first post. its a water leak guide for GM dealerships on the Equinox. hope it helps.
Equinox/Torrent body vehicles have a common ign cylinder problem. The repair is supposed to be to remove the cylinder , clean and coat end with PTE grease. This seldom works. The best way to fix a non turning cylinder is to replace it.
