I have just repaired a similar problem on a 2003 F150 crewcab sunroof. It opened and would not close. Pressing the switch to open made a click(no bad fuse or breaker.) Pressing it to close made no noise. I checked the switch with a VOM, it was fine. I used jumper wires to reverse polarity on the motor leads (purple and blue) between plug from express open module (black box) and motor connector (excluding limit switch.) I was hoping just to close the roof until Monday. Pressing the switch made the roof closed perfectly both ways (no problem with regulator or motor.) I focused on the limit switch in side the gearcase on the motor. The grease was melted and had swamped the switch with oil. I cleaned the limit switch with electronic cleaner and reassembled the gearcase, paying close attention to the alignment of the sequencing cams (there's a window to check the marks.) With everything hooked up and the headliner back in place it seems to work perfect.
Thanks B

Sunroof will not close all the way


Maybe a bad switch. There is usually a manual operation for the sunroof which will let you know if your have other problems. (see owners manual) if that works, uspect bad switch

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.

Is there an emergency switch to get my sunroof closed for a 2000 ford expedition


check your fuses first if the motor is not working. if thats good you'll have to remove the cover where the switch is and you should be able to crank it closed manually with an allen key

Sunroof opened but wont close. Its not the switch


This vehicle sunroof can travel past its open point and gets stuck. you can lower the headliner and insert an hex key and crank the glass forward one inch then it will work again. Just don't let it go to far open or it can get stuck again. Also check the drain tray to make sure it is not out of place, if so you need new guides.

How to replace the sunroof on a 200 ford expedition


usually the only parts you can get is either the glass or module. even from a salvage yard. So knowing this look to replace the whole module. it can be expensive. the headliner must be dropped, wires disconnected drain tubes, and bolts removed. once new is installed it must be synced.
