I had that problem last year. I bought a new starter but it was not the correct one for my car. For the 98 there are two different starters. I bought the wrong one the first time. My step father started to put it one and realized it was not the same as the one he just pulled off. Ending up taking it with us when we returned the orginial one I bought. The orginial one I bought was about $70 the correct one was $400. The auto store did not have the correct one listed as a replacement part. Until the number off of the part was keyed into the system and found out that it was just not the common replacement part.

IT MAY HAVE GOTTEN STUCK TO THE RUBBER INSULATION AND DRAWN TOO MUCH AMPERAGE RESULTING IN A BLOWN FUSE. TWO MOST COMMON LOCATIONS FOR THE FUSES ARE UNDER THE HOOD IN A RECTANGULAR SHAPED BLACK BOX. THE OTHER IS UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL OR ON THE LEFT PART OF THE DASH WHERE THE DRIVERS' DOOR HINGE IS. HOPE THIS HELPS OUT. LET ME KNOW PLEASE. BEST OF LUCK.

Tips for a great answer:
If this occured after trying to close the shade while the moonroof was opening, it is possible that the plastic tab that locks into the vent (and subsequently the rest of the moonroof) has been bent. I was having a similar problem where my vent would only go up on one side and stay closed on the other (and it would sometimes get stuck open). It would also prevent the rest of the moonroof from opening up. If this is the case, from what I can tell, there is no easy fix for this. Upon researching this problem, you are the only other person asking about it and zero fixes. For the time being, the vent can be closed by lifting up on one side to "unlock" the stuck tab and you should be able to put it down. After that, you should look up instructions to remove your moonroof glass to see if you can inspect the affected area to determine the cause. Here is a link that shows you how to remove the moonroof glass, but does not address the exact issue you describe.
