SOURCE: SUNROOF STUCK IN OPEN POSITION
Control Module might have issues.
Remove headliner (quite a job)
Unplug the the power leads to the sunroff motor
Use spare wires to use power from the overhead dome light to the power conections on the motor to get it to move a bit.
If it does not move, reverse the wires. If it sill does not move, then the Sunroof Motor is bad.
Otherwise, Re-connect the power leads to the motor and re-try the sunroof switch to get the roof closed..
Most likely the sunroof control module has a bad diode.

Can't say for sure about this particular model, but most vehicles with sunroofs have a manual crank for situations like this. Generally it is located forward of the sunroof on the roof of the interior of the car, sometimes under a panel or interior light. This at least will get the roof closed until the problem can be fixed. It may also allow the sun roof to realign itself and help the electric crank to start working again.

a solution that i had is that if you can open your sunroof without it opening ur shade try that then fold the shade by pushing between or in the middle of it and popout the shade. this works but try not to push to hard or you can break the plastic runners on the side of the shade. check to see if nothing is in the way of the runners. then put back the back part first then slide it all the way to the back then, do the other part and clip them back together (there might be a little metal piece that pushes your shades back so check that first to see if its there first)

SOURCE: 2003 kia sorento: sunroof stuck
remove the sun roof motor drive and close the sunroof manually, then reinstall motor, which by the way is the most likely part to cause this.

try this first (cheapest remedy first) open the sunroof fully take key out of ignition shut all doors then put the key in drivers door and hold key over 30 secs to unlock car(windows will go down)then wait 30 secs.then put key back in drivers door and hold key over 30 secs to lock car,windows will go up and the sunroof will close.if the sunroof does not shut properly then we start with motor park switch.....
