    Do you happen to have a drawing for the wiring so that I can check that?  Also, do you have instructions and a drawing on how to replace the motor in the sunroof?

    Thanks for the information.  Is there anything that will show me how to get to this motor?   I don't even know where or how to get to it.

Try the INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE  If the sun roof is not working.
If the sunroof does not close or open automatically, use the following procedure to return sunroof operation to normal. 

1. Close the sunroof if it is not in the closed position. It may be necessary to repeatedly push the switch to close the sunroof. 
2. Press and hold the TILT UP switch the sunroof will tilt up. Release the button. 
3. Press and hold the TILT UP switch again. Do not release the switch, keep pressure on it. After 4 seconds of depressing, the sunroof will full close. 
4. Initializing procedure is complete. Confirm proper operation of the sunroof (slide open, slide close, tilt up,tilt down.) 

But If the above mentioned steps are not helping to make the sunroof work then 
disconnect the car battery for a minute or two, then after reconnecting the battery Try the same procedure as mentioned above.
But if this procedure is not making any difference then the problem is electrical.the wires connected to the sunroof motor needs to be checked.If the wires are checked OK then the the motor must be faulty.Check for the short in wires by continuity tester and voltage to the motor by meter. It will show 12 volts at the motor.Also check for any blockage in the sunroof way from where it moves up and down.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

KA sunroof won't open

sunroofs are a total pain to work on and are very delicate as to moving parts and adjustments. if you are not really mechanically inclined I would not mess with it. take it to a technician if you can afford it. If you think you can work on an intricate and sensitive mechanism and realize that once you get into it it may not close anymore then go ahead. If it is closed now I would just act like you don't have a sunroof anymore and leave it alone, lucky it is not locked in the open position. If you insist on working on it yourself you can remove the glass easily enough by looking into the opening from the inside and remove screws, should be four, 2 each side front and back. after removing the screws you can see most everything from the roof side and tell if something is out of place or debris is interrupting operation. good luck, you are going to need it.

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.

My subaru (1990 Legacy) sunroof won't open. There

Ever since I had mine, and when the previous owner did, had the same problem, except that this one hangs up. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I thought it was a faulty mechanism as we fiddled with it and then it worked until the next time. Same thing. . It also could be a faulty electrical system. I needed a new alternator, since that resupplies the energy and if it's low then some things might not work so well. During rainy season I don't use it. I'm always afraid it will get stuck open and I end up with an unwanted shower.

It sounds like the sunroof seal has partially melted to the roof. Suggest you use a small putty knife and work you way around the seal to break it loose.

2003 tiburon power sunroof won't close all the way . It'll open all the way but starts to close & then stops.

sounds like the metal deflector in front of the sunroof,is separated and caught in the roof mechanism, however there are other issues that can cause that condition, it can be anything from a bad sunroof switch to the sunroof tracks jamming, start with looking to see if there any obstuctions in the track..the sunroof mechanism can get costly to repair.

Manual close for sunroof

You can try cleaning and lubricating the runners. The sunroof will open as soon as it is obstructed, eg. A childs arm in the way of closing. The problem here is that you can hear the motor running, wich indicates a broken cable, or a stripped plastic gear.
