Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

97 Camry Sunroof will tilt, does not close all the way, will not

Today I tried to open my sunroof and it made a kind of thump noise, then I noticed that it will not open all the way, it will open to the tilt, then close most of the way. It looks like it isn't lined up right, it is kind of crooked. Any ideas? Is this a big or small problem?

The side steel mechanism maybe jammed or worn, or possible foreign object jammed within the mechanism. Ii will require taking the sunroof apart, unless you can free it. Possible sunroof mechanism replacement. Hopefully this helps

How do fix a sunroof on a 2000 alero that is stuck open and only makes a clicking sound


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.

Sun roof does not work


Dear cz50001: there are only a few things that you, a weekend warrior can do to diagnose and/or fix the problem on your car.
Unfortunately the newer cars get, the more complex they get.
Unfortunately, your car is one which falls in the more complex category. Your car is designed with a "BODY CONTROL MODULE". This little gem gets input from nearly every electrical component in the car including the sunroof. In terms of what you can do to check it out: The fuse box inside the car has roughly 24 fuses positioned vertically 12x12. The fuse located at the lower left side of the box is a 10A "red in color" is for the sunroof. Remove it and look through it to see if it has been burned through the center. If it has, replace it and try the sun roof. If the fuse blows again, you have a short and it would be best left to a professional.
There is another set of circumstances which can occur that will render the sunroof inoperable. If the battery is disconnected or if the sunroof motor had been disconnected, the sunroof will stop operating. To reset the sunroof memory, with the key in the on position, push and hold the sunroof tilt switch in the forward (up) position until the sunroof is fully vented (tilted up) position. It should at that point operate normally. Should those two suggestions not solve your problem, it requires either a dealership with a specialized tool called CONSULT-11 to communicate with the BCM. There are some specialty shops such as mine equipped to deal with your car as well. However, most can not address this type of problem without this diagnostic tool. Good luck.
