Electric motor has either failed or has a short in the wiring. You either need to locate the wiring and try hooking a hotwire to the positive (be careful and don't do if you're unsure) and try to close or you need to detach the controller from the sunroof and manually push down but will be loose. Best to get a professional to fix or your going to have major leak issues.

05 Malibu sunroof is stuck open


If it is electric the motor is bad. See who the manufacture is (may be webcast). The have warranties on those, and my 05 equinox was under warranty and I had replaced for free. The model and serial number is on the top track. U might have to stand up top and look down. Contact manufacturer and go from there.

Stuck sunroof


check all fuses. (both fuse boxes)
if they are good.
that it can be 2 problems
1: electrical
2: it mech. jammed. up.
what a tech does, is check for 12v to the motor as you flip the switch
if 12v good the motors bad (silent) or jammed (groans)
if 12v pins , at 0v. then the power feed is bad, (switches and relays) ask how, (voltmeter checks easy)
if 12v to motor, then detach motor drive, and try to move roof
by hand , cant?, then its JAMMED, fix it. (mech. fault ,pure)
if you can move roof easy , then the motor is toast, replace it.

Sunroof will open but will not close stuck in halfway pos please help


i have changed the whole sunroof on my mx6,old one was to rusted around edges.if your roof opens but not close it sounds like your motor is dying or your electrical connections to motor are in rough shape.you should be able to close your roof by pushing button and placing your hand in middle of roof and help by lighty pushing/guiding close. be sure roof is straight and not crooked or it will jam and burn out motor

Sunroof stuck in the open position. can;t close.


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
down' solution,,.
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.
Happy motoring.

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier sunroof will not open


if the roof is stucked up pull at the rubber lining around the inside of the sunroof (the one that seems like its just for looks) near the control button. then pull down on the inner roof cover and you'll see the back of the control button. there is an electrical connection there. see if it has come apart,. also check out if the motor of the roof control is spinning.if it is not spinning then replace the motor to make it work.
