My Audi A4 has a manual crank spot under a flip cover just in front of the roof on the ceiling. If your roof is opening randomly, it may be just bent contacts for the switch (this is known on the A4). Remove the sunroof switch from the headliner, take the switch itself off the mount, and you'll see the contacts underneath. Bend them more vertical so they can contact the switch knob more easily, and try it out. This fixes the problem on the A4 and your Golf likely has a similar design.

    If it will not manually close then it needs repair right. Sounds like the glass is no longer connected to the tracks.

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

MY SUNROOF WONT CLOSE


Check the owner's manual. There should be a section showing how to manually close the sunroof. You will use an allen wrench to turn the gears manually, I just don't know exactly what size or where the hole is located. It is typically located right behind the sunroof with a plug covering the hole in the headliner.

Sunroof wont close on 1990 celica gti


some cars sunroof regulators come with a couple settings in sunroof
1 the 30 degree back tilt
2 half open stop sun roof
3 full open sunroof
these are common on sunroofs

now lets look at what could be the cause
bad regulator or needed greased gears
track needs to be cleaned which can stick the wheels down
most sunroofed vehicle regulators or gear boxes you will find in the trunk way up by the wheel wells in that little compartment tight to get out
also there should be a manual crank for sunroof placed somewhere in vehicle i know for my bmw it was back in the trunk on the gear box you will have to call dealer or look in manual to find sunroof manual crank and how to close
recommend taken to the closes dealer and have them service your sunroof mechanicals and have it cleaned up
sunroofs like cars needs to be cleaned on a certain milelage interval so that it will work for a long time
