Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

Transmission stuck in park. I see how to unlock, but want to find the cause. Also, the sun roof won't open and I believe this is related. I have checked the fuses that I can see both in car and under the hood. I had this problem years ago w/ sunroof, but don't remember the solution!

There is a brake-pedal interlock switch normally located somewhere at the top of the brake pedal that can cause this problem. If the switch is staying activated, you will not be able to shift the car from park.

Can I manually close or open roof on 500 sl 2005, stuck and want lower


Some cars have a manual sun roof closer. It's usually in the ceiling in the back seat, behind a plastic plug. Remove the plug and insert an allen wrench to close the sun roof.

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.


caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

The Sunroof has DRAIN TUBES that get CLOGGED and Cause it to LEAK this WAY With the Roof OPEN you Should be able to SEE the DRAINS at the Front or Rear of the SIDE tracks, A Blast of AIR will UNCLOG Them One on EACH SIDE in LOW Spots

As For the DOORS UNLOCKING They Need LUBED from Time to Time and You May Even Need to Remove the Inside Pannels at liest PARTIALY to Gain Access to the Parts that NEED LUBE. I Recomend PB BLASTER Spray Lubercant for FReeing Up your Locking Mechenizms

Sun roof


This is a common issue, it is caused by a relay block that is mounted close to the sunroof motor, after time the main 2 relays on the block come loose and can be fixed by taking out and re-soldering them, i fixed mine and two other friends jeep sunroofs this way, works like a charm
