i would pull the window switches up and test for power if you have power pull the front passenger side switch out and attach it to the rear connector if that still doesnt work i would pull off the door panel and look to see if the window motor arms are not connected if not your window motor may be damaged did the windows show any signs of going bad before it went bad like moving pretty slow or alot of movent forward and back while going up and down

I have the same problem on my car and took it to the dealership to get it checked, they said that the 2001 is the one of the only years that doesn't have a manual close function. They told me my motor was completely dead and the only way to close it is to replace the motor. My only problem is knowing where the motor is. I would have yours checked if you haven't already.

Loose wire or bad switch. If the switch is loose or floppy at all it's bad. Can you make it happen by tapping or banging the switch with your hand? Or does it happen on rough roads?

in all sun roofs on most vehicles there is a motor that operates the unit. now green wire can indicate a ground, however they can also indicate a power source like for a tail light green is used for the right turn signal circuit. to be sure use a test probe to check for voltage to that wire if it lights up it's a constant current circuit. if the light doesn't come on turn the ignition and check once more. if the light comes on than it's an auxillary circuit. if there is no fuse then there might be a relay for your sun roof circuit. check the power distribution box. your owners manual will show you exactly where that relay is located in the box under the hood. in most newer vehicles they do not use fuses for electric motors for functions in the car but a relay to protect the circuit. check all this first before connecting that green wire. if ther problem still persists then contact me again and i will help with other possiblities

The problem is probably the 'flap' of metal that's popped up, just above the where the handle is.
The runners/rails have undoubtedly corroded, and now there isn't anything to pull it down.
Luckily, as a 'Get the roof shut cos it's p*^%g
You can just hold your finger on the flap, to hold it down, in between the sunroof, and hole as you shut it.
Just remember to remove your finger Before you finish closing the sunroof.
