It is likely the switch that has failed.
You'll need to remove the switch and check that there is voltage at the "close" side of the switch when you press it.

Subaru outback moonroof won't close moonroof vent stuck on passenger side



If this occured after trying to close the shade while the moonroof was opening, it is possible that the plastic tab that locks into the vent (and subsequently the rest of the moonroof) has been bent. I was having a similar problem where my vent would only go up on one side and stay closed on the other (and it would sometimes get stuck open). It would also prevent the rest of the moonroof from opening up. If this is the case, from what I can tell, there is no easy fix for this. Upon researching this problem, you are the only other person asking about it and zero fixes. For the time being, the vent can be closed by lifting up on one side to "unlock" the stuck tab and you should be able to put it down. After that, you should look up instructions to remove your moonroof glass to see if you can inspect the affected area to determine the cause. Here is a link that shows you how to remove the moonroof glass, but does not address the exact issue you describe.

My 2004 tiburon moonroof is stuck doesn't open or close i can hear the motor going but the moonroof just doesn't move at all, first it was closing all the way down but was making a funny noise as...


In order to find out what's causing the problem, the headliner must be dropped (removed) to access the sunroof motor so it can be inspected and removed to inspect the slide cables up inside the sunroof/moonroof assy. Until that's done, there's not much more I can do to help except speculate.

What to know if sunroof only slides open or if it will pop up to open like preludes


On EX and EX-V6 models:
The moonroof has two positions: it can be tilted up in the back for ventilation, or it can be slid back into the roof. Use the switch under the left dashboard vent to operate the moonroof. The ignition switch must be ON (II).
To tilt up the back of the moonroof, press and hold the center button. To close the moonroof, press and hold the top of the switch To open (slide back) the moonroof, press and hold the bottom of the switch. Release the switch when the moonroof gets to the desired position. Make sure everyone's hands are away from the moonroof before opening or closing it.
The moonroof has a key-off delay. You can still open and close the moonroof for up to ten minutes after you turn off the ignition. The key-off delay cancels as soon as you open either door. You must then turn the ignition ON (II) for the moonroof to operate.
Hope this helps.

Shade for 93 honda wont close. window works fine. but shade is stuck


I don't know if this will work, but you can try it. If you use the manual method for closing the moonroof, or opening it, it MIGHT take the shade along with it. The following is the procedure, which you may already know.
The moonroof can be closed manually, if the control switch will not close it.
1. Remove the round plug near the rear center of the headliner.
2. Insert the moonroof wrench (from the tool kit, should be in the trunk) into the socket.
3.Turn the wrench until the moonroof seats in the closed position.
4. Replace the plug.
As I say, this MIGHT work. Hope it helps.

Linc Navigator Moonroof Stuck Open


I had the same problem with mine. 2003 Navigator, and the moonroof would open but wouldn't close. When hitting the switch to "open" you'd hear a click, but no sound when trying to close it. So I popped that console down off the ceiling, pulled out the harness for that switch, and figured out which wires to jump to close it.
