  • marchjones Sep 23, 2008

    I opened the sun roof but couldn't get it to close. I can hear someting tick when i press the button, but nothing happens. I heard the chain rattle as if i were opening it but it made no noise when i tried to close it. I changed the fuse but that didn' t work either. I there a manual way to close it? i've been lucky cuz it hasn't rained but it's going to in a couple of days i'm getting worried.

There is a manual way to close it. between the rearview mirror and the sunroof there is a plastic box remove the two screws holding this on and remove. then with a flat tip screwdriver depress the white plastic clutchpinin the center of the motor screw.(this should be towards the rear of the area).turn this white plastic pin to open or close your sun roof. i hope this helps.

    there are three stop points on most of these sunroofs. one at the closed point and one for the vent and one for the open when the motor skips (the grinding sound you hear) the stopp points get missaligned the best way to fix this is to open the roof all the way manually remove the motor assembly and press the open button until it stops running press it a second time to make sure it isn't in the middle stop then reinstall the motor assembly. this should hopeully fix the problem.

SOURCE: power sun roof won't close, makes a clicking sound

THERE SHOULD BE A PLUG IN THE COVER FOR THE SUNROOF MOTOR THAT YOU CAN POP OUT & CLOSE MANUALLY WITH A SCREWDRIVER

SOURCE: sun roof

First check your fuse box, for any fuse blow, position 26 in the Passenger Fuse Box (Box C), then keep in mind that the power sunroof is controlled by a switch that selects the direction of travel of the sunroof. The switch changes the polarity of the voltage going to the sunroof motor. This changes the rotation of the motor, thereby changing the direction of sunroof travel.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figure 1)

  1. Open the sunroof to the ventilation position.
  2. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  3. Push down the sunroof headlining with a finger. Unhook the retaining springs with a bent piece of wire.
  4. Pull down on the headlining sufficiently to pass beneath the gutter rail. At the same time, slide the sunroof to the rear to release the catches at the front.
Do not pull the sunroof too far to the rear; otherwise, it will be difficult to remove again.
  1. Unhook the spring retaining brackets.
  2. Remove the retaining screws from the sides and front.
  3. Remove the sunroof.
To install:
  1. Fit the sunroof into position and install the retaining screws.
  2. Install the spring retaining brackets.
  3. Slide the sunroof forward to engage the catches in the front.
  4. Install or reposition any trim moved for access.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Some cars have a manual sun roof closer. It's usually in the ceiling in the back seat, behind a plastic plug. Remove the plug and insert an allen wrench to close the sun roof.

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.


caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

Chevrolet 2004 Tahoe Sun Roof Problem


I have built, repaired and installed sunroofs for 20 years. Its hard to tell what problem is, so many variations for motors with relays, cams, programed circuit boards. To get the roof closed you can drop motor usually 3 screws then pull glass forward as far as you can, then from inside of truck you will have to take a screw driver and finish sliding cable forward somehow. When sliding by hand watch on the inside to see what parts are moving so you can finish sliding forward. Hope this helps.

96 I30 infinity Sun roof is open and I can't close it.


Try checking the fuse first, it could be that simple. Some times there's is a place to manually crank it closed, that's covered up by piece of small trim on your headliner usually before the sunroof opening or after. Good Luck

you have 2 drains in the front that go down the a pillars and dump near the fenders.

The rear usually go down the B pillar or C pillar and out thebottom near the rocker panel.

Blow them out from the top with compressed air and make sure you have air flow at the exits.. Open the roof to see drain holes in the four corners.

Chrysler concorde sun roof stuck open!!


Check the fuses to start with. If they are fine it could be a broken switch or a burnt electrical motor. If the closing mechanism has broken and bound up it could keep the window from closing. With the car in accessory mode or ON -whichever allows the windows to open - hit the close switch and listen closely. if a click of the motor can be heard it is a mechanical issue - if not it is electrical.
