Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
You may have a bad switch, or the motor itself may be bad. The motor may be accessible through a small cover in the headliner, and it may have a square hole to insert a quarter-inch ratchet extension, but I think they stopped using that type of motor before '97. Try pushing up hard and wiggling the switch. Don't EVER push or force a sunroof, almost everything attached to the glass is small and plastic (and expensive). The upper console snaps into the roof with metal clips, and should be gently pried down. The switch can then be easily tested with a test light or meter. There also may be a relay for the motor - see if you can find a repair manual that has the appropriate electrical diagram for your truck.
