Take the cover near the lights off for starters, use the allen key attached the the motor to wind the sunroof back into place, check fuses?

My electric sunroof has stopped working on my vw golf 1999 1.4. It opened half way on its accord when I locked the car and stopped half way. Now it does not want to open nor close. Last week it worked fine...

Usually, when a part of car that is run by battery failed, first
thing to check is the FUSE from the main fuse box or
a fuse box somewhere under the hood. Next is to locate the
motor that drives the sunroof and have a qualified electrical
mechanic check the motor, If the fuse is Ok, and still
stopping, then check motor and you may find that only the
carbon is the problem. If still the carbon is ok and the
sunroof still stop, you may ask the mechanic to check and
test the "Stator" and "Rotor" that has failed and may require
rewinding of the coil wire.

Sunroof and some dashboard lights are not working on my 1994 VW golf. Is this a fuse issue. Where is the fuse box. How easy is this to take care of myself? thanks, meta

I would check the fuses. The fusebox is to the left of the steering column, under the dash. There should be a black plastic cover door to open to gain excess to the fusebox.

2000 VW Golf. My windows and sunroof won't close (no noise, no trying, nothing) but everything else seems to work fine. Any ideas?

Fuse blown - look for the one with the key symbol it powers windows/locks/interior lights/sunroof operation. Then work out why it blows...could be anything on the circuit so check a lock isn't sticking on/off when operating the central locking.
