Question about 1998 Pontiac Sunfire
There is nothing in the way stopping it
You may have a weak motor and have to replace it. How does the motor sound as you are closing it? Does it sound like it is dragging, slowing down as it nears closing? If so you may need to replace the motor. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: sunroof will not close
If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.

sounds like your sun roofs gear or track is stripped. Replace the motor for the side window had the same problem there really cheap.

hi sounds like a faulty sunroof relay keeping the motor running it may well have blown the fuse or burned the motor out if you connected it back up and it doesn,t work at all but should be able to turn the sunroof back manually look on the sunroof motor there should be sometthing like a slot for a large screwdriver or a bolt head of sorts just wind it back and then check the relays and fuses if your switch is a electronic one make a make shift one and try [simple switch]on and off as this is delicate circiutery and the slightest short can destroy it best of luck yates210456

SOURCE: MY SUNROOF WONT CLOSE
Check the owner's manual. There should be a section showing how to manually close the sunroof. You will use an allen wrench to turn the gears manually, I just don't know exactly what size or where the hole is located. It is typically located right behind the sunroof with a plug covering the hole in the headliner.

Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.
