The roof itself has plastic gear type guides they may be worn at this point or something is obstructing its way try moving it back and forth with the switch and see if it wont dislodge you may always help it along by having someone work the switch as you from both sides as one hand inside on the roof and the other on the outside of it to help it close

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.

You must remove the electric drive motor located at the front of the sunroof under a plastic cover, then close the glass and reinstall the motor drive.

2003 mitsubishi outlander sunroof will not close.


Hi

could be a few things, firstly the fuse for the sunroof, secondly some have a small relay next to the motor near the sunroof. if the switch for the sunroof is on the roof pop it out of the trim or unscre it if it is fixed with screws, check the wiring looks right if still wont close then simply unplug the wires off the back of the switch, tel me how many wires you have and the colours, you can attach 2 toghether and this will close the sunroof if the switch is the part that has failed, Always check fuses first!

If your stuck still get back to me for more info

Regards

My sunroof on my 2003 Grand am wont close. What can I do?


Check the fuse in the fuse box. If that is good then you might want to look into getting a new sunroof motor. The gears in the motor are plastic so one of them may have some broken or missing teeth. If you can hear the motor run then replace the motor. Also, maybe the switch is bad. Check all of the connections and make sure that they are seated right.

Had a smiilar problem with my 2000 Freelander, the runners on the sunroof have plastice teeth which snap off, if you remove the plastic strips on the inside of the sunroof you can unscrew the glass take it out force the sunroof into the closed position and reattahch the sunroof, then never use it again

Sunroof stuck


First off, you should leave it closed. At least you can drive it that way. The grinding could be the motor itself, or a gear inside that has rounded or broken teeth. Another possibility is that it has slipped out of a channel or track. Unless you're pretty handy this sounds like a professional repair job.
