There may be something obstructing the path. Possibly the wind deflector? It's also possible that the sunroof knob is out of sync with the sunroof itself. Try putting your key in the drivers door lock, turning and holding that position while the sunroof closes. (not sure which way you have to turn) You can also close it manually with a hand crank (which is actually an allen wrench)

My sunroof won't close


Some sunroofs have a open switch like the drivers window. You push it and the window will open automaticly. The button on your sunroof could be jammed so even though you can close it as soon as you release it, it will auto open on it's own.

2011 kia optima sunroof won't close


I found the web reference below at a different fix-it site ... for your exact year & model Kia
So if the phonebook method does not work you might try this:

"It's reopening because of obstacle detection. When sunroof motor current draw goes high the module will reverse the motor because it thinks it has hit something.
The issue may be calibration, the motor, a damaged guide, foreign debris preventing proper movement, or it could be the module itself. Depending on what the issue is you may or may not be able to get it closed until the problem is repaired.
First disconnect the battery to clear the module's memory. Once the battery is reconnected turn the key on, press and hold the sunroof open button. Continue holding the button for ten seconds after it is full open.
Then press and hold the close button and see if it will go full closed. If it does close continue to hold the button again for ten seconds.
If this doesn't work then the problem is going to need to be repaired for it to close."

Helpful?
Good luck on your troubleshooting

To reset the motor on you sun roof use the switch to fully open and hold the switch for a few seconds in the fully open position then do the same in the closing position. Worth a try.

My sunroof will not close and stay closed. When the knob is in off postion it goes to close and reopens itself. It seems that the knob/motor is confused and thinks its always on open. How do I fix this?


I also have a 2003 GTI, and my sunroof recently started doing the exact same thing! Wish I could help you. I found your post while trying to find some info about this problem online. If I find anything, I'll post a link for you here. Good luck!

You need to start with checking the fuses, sounds like they are blown. Fuse panel is on side of drivers dash, you need to remove panel, just pulls off.

Open sunroof that will not close.


you can open and close you sunroof "manually" remove the plastic cover next to your sunroof and dome light buttons (above your rearview mirror) there is an allen wrench stored inside... insert the wrench into the corresponding hole and you can close or open you sunroof by turning the wrench
