Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.

SOURCE: Sunroof stuck open

The thump means the motor is good The linkage between the motor and the sunroof got either disconnected or broke off because it is a plastic link. you will need to remove the sunroof liner and find where the linkage is broken and replace. if you do it yourself maybe it will cost just a few bucks if you take it in they will charge you a minimum of $250.00

SOURCE: Telescopic Steering wheel won't move down or up

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.

SOURCE: sunroof stuck tilted open, won't move, switch just

remove the light console, remove the sunroof motor.( 2 screws and unplug the electronics). ...open up the motor by removing 4 screws,lift out the electronic board .remove the clip that holds the gear in place.
remove the round metal disk, reinsert the motor in its place and using a pair of pliers turn the gear countercolckwise, this will lower the roof

The Vermeulen Hollandia tilt and slide sunroof on my 1996 Subaru Impreza has stuck open. We swapped the fuse for another one in the car and it closed. However, when we tried to open it again it stuck


First, were the fuses that you replaced the first BLOWN sunroof fuse with the same size? Example, 5 or 10 or 20amps...I am going to assume they were the same or you probably would have burned up the sunroof motor or just blown the replacement fuse real quick. Can you help the motor by pressing the palm of one or both of your hands against the inside of the sunroof glass and push the sunroof button while trying to help the sunroof slide back with your hand or hands. (Obviously if you use both hands someone else will have to push the sunroof button unless you have an extra arm and hand) If it slides back with the help of your hands, either the sunroof is sticking against the slide or the motor is worn down and just doesn't have enough strength to move it anymore. You could try to use a light coating of oil on the slides where the sunroof touches as it slides back and forth. Something like WD-40 preferabley but you could even use any motor oil, worst case "Cooking Oil". Good luck with my suggestions!!

Hi, my1999 mercury mystique sunroof will tilt but won't open. It makes a buzzing noise when I try. Is it a fuse or what?


If the fuse is bad you won't hear the actuator buzzing. Sounds like something has stripped or broke.
