Could be the switch. Could be the roof module or regulator. You can pull the head liner down a bit and look. If you see loose cables, its the regulator. Remove the head liner. The module is in front center of the window. I have removed them without taking out the head liner. You have to be careful though. Pull the headliner down to much and it will crack.
Start with the first, front supporting wire / rod & feed it through the lining hoops & roof mounts, then work your way back along the roof doing the same for each rod. This rods fully support the liner & do most of the work.
When all the rods are fitted, start loosening any trim where required, push the liner under & re-seat the trim. Use a blunt tool to lift the edge of any window seals & run it slowly along the seal, inserting the edge of the liner as you go
The motor and module is in front of the moon roof window, under the headliner. You can pull the liner down to work on it, but be careful not to pull it so far that it breaks. If the cables are broke or really loose, you have to remove the liner. Replace the regulator. Most times it is the module. It can be replaced without removing the liner.
if you pick up a can of spray glue at you local hardware store, spray the underside of the roof liner and the roof, wait a couple minutes for the glue to cure and press them together starting from where its stuck natural and rub it into place.
let me know how you make out
It's pretty hopeless to get it stuck back up right. It has a sponge backing that tears off when you glue it. The only right way is to get a new ceiling liner and put it up. But I assume your car is too old to want to do that.
I have tried spray on adhesive. I took the liner off from the dome light to provide a hole for me to poke my arm up through and spray the adhesive. But hot sunlight made the glue come loose.
The only partially effective remedy I found was to take off the doorway trim and tape the edges of the liner up tight and hold that in place with the doorway trim. It still sagged, but I could see out the rearview mirror.
I tried a hot iron to melt the glue and stick it up. It worked for about ten minutes.
You might try stiff strips of thin wood on the outside of the liner, wedged against the doorway trim and pressing up against the liner.
You might try some quite thick glue, so that it would soak through the sponge backing and penetrate the fabric. That would show spots on the ceiling, but it might hold it in place.
