The motor is stripped out. The sun roof might be binding on the sun roof track and the motor is not strong enough to move the roof. I would first replace the sun roof motor if available seperately.
You mihgt have to get the complete assembly because of part availability

I know this is an old blog but some people may still find it helpful. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each.
Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. One should use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.
One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground.
The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.
You must hook up thhooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire)
When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and LEAVE THE ROOF WINDOW ALONE UNTIL YOU HAVE A NEW SWITCH.
e power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. once this is connected the roof should either open more or close.
To reverse the operation of the roof, simply reverse the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires they are

The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.
Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.
There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)
The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.
If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.
This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.
Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.
To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.
3 bolts hold the motor up.
With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.
Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.
Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

most of the time on those sun roofs when you hear the clicking noise coming from the headliner when trying to open or close your sunroof and you have to help it move that clicking is the gear in the motor skipping ,I just fixed one on an infinity the other day that was doing the same thing ,the plastic gear gets worn down and will not grab any longer ,hope this helps!
