Do you mean that your sunroof is stuck halfway and now won't open or shut correctly? This sounds like a normal setting with the roof half closed and the deflector at the front beginning to close. If it won't move from there first check the fuse but it would be smart to look for silly simple things like a piece of road debris stuck in one of the runners.
When the motor stops in the down position, pull the emergency release handle. Push the door fully closed by hand then engage the emergency handle. Open the door with the remote and then close it with the remote to make sure the door closes completely.
If you have eliminated the obstruction sensor, I would suggest a few things. Is the door spring set at the proper tension - usually check by releasing the door safety and manually closing/opening the door. It should balance about halfway up/down. Openers have limit switches for travel, if one is incorrectly positioned or faulty, it can cause similar issues. Openers have torque limit controls, if the motor thinks it is working too hard it will stop. Is the door greased and moving freely when you manually tested it for the spring tension? Are the gear sprockets firm and greased?
I think what has happened is that the door latch (the one in the door) has somehow closed and won't let the door shut normally.
Here's how it works. The door latch consists of two major parts. One is the short, round metal tube thing that is attached to the car body about halfway up where the door shuts. Inside the door there is a latch in a slot that lines up with round metal tube thing when you shut the door. I think what has happened is the latch has closed, not allowing the door latch to slide over the metal tube thing and close completely. If you look at the latch in the door slot you'll (hopefully) see what I mean. Now how to fix it.
You'll need a medium to large screwdriver and maybe some help from a friend. First, lift the outside door handle like you are going to open the door. Hold it up. Then, with the screwdriver, push the latch in the door slot UPWARD until it clicks and latches.
It is difficult to put this in words but it usually is an easy fix. No damage done to your car (unless you REALLY slammed the door hard numerous times..).
Please re-post with any questions.
The wire harness/track assembly below the door needs replaced. It is a fairly simple operation that can be done in your driveway or garage. If you have any questions on how to replace feel free to ask.
no promblem when you shut one door it forces air to the other side remove the kick plate at the bottom adjust the rollers till the fridge leans back i set them so when you turn loose of the door slightly past the halfway position it shuts its self that way when it pops open it shuts its self
If it stops in roughly the same spot every time, and won't respond after it has stopped, it sounds like a broken wire. It is likely losing its electrical current to run the motor. It should be right where the track bends when the door has stopped. Check for loose or frayed wiring inside the flexible plastic track just below the door. The wires will often wear after being bent over and over again. If you find a broken bit of wire, cut out that section and splice in a new length of wire. Be sure you do a good job splicing, or you may end up with the same issue again soon. I am not a mechanic by any means, this just makes sense to me, and I'm considering buying an 01 town and country with this issue, which is why I'm on this site to begin with. Best of luck -
When you upen it manually does it feel lik ther is any binding once you get past the halfway mark? It almost sounds like it is binding up where the motor is at the half way point and once the door is fully opened the motor cannot close the door because there is too much resistance. One other issue could be the motor is starting to wear out and is having trouble opening and closing the door. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.
