You may be able to take the switch apart and clean it. if that doesn't work get two pieces of wire and use them to jump the plug and by pass it all together just to get it closed

SOURCE: 1993 lincoln towncar sunroof switch

I know this is an old blog but some people may still find it helpful. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each.

Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. One should use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.

One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground.

The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.

You must hook up thhooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire)

When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and LEAVE THE ROOF WINDOW ALONE UNTIL YOU HAVE A NEW SWITCH.
e power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. once this is connected the roof should either open more or close.

To reverse the operation of the roof, simply reverse the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires they are

SOURCE: 99 malibu sunroof stuck open.

The motor is in the front area of the roof unit.If you can drop the switch and trim around the front of sunroof unit and headliner ,you can can access the sunroof drive motor.The drive shaft of the motor can be turned mannually with an allen wrench which will assist in closing and identifying the problem area.If its hung very badly ...remove the sunroof motor then push the roof closed.

Sunroof switch won't close the sunroof,looking for the way to manually close it


There should be a crank on your fuse box cover {hexagonal section}. That is the manual closer for sunroof. You have to take off cover for readong/interior light to access the cranking point.

My sunroof won't close


Some sunroofs have a open switch like the drivers window. You push it and the window will open automaticly. The button on your sunroof could be jammed so even though you can close it as soon as you release it, it will auto open on it's own.

Sunroof won't respond to controls on '93 Nissan Quest


It's either the switch or fuse or motor or rusted. Look in your car manual for "fuse box(es)' and follow the diagram and legend of your fuse panel. Or you can check each fuse to find a burnt out one and replace them. Sun roofs still working in "93's is a good design. If it has not been used for a season, you can try to help it when your activating switch. It could also be rust/corroding and needs to be freed up from it sitting position. When it opens get some good lubrication on the moving parts non conductive quality for electro parts. After you've check the fuse, switch, the motor will be hard to access to test it. So determine if it is NOT leaking, now do you want to chance it not sealing properly and leaking from your fuddling with it?

2005 nissan maxima sunroof won't open


Had this problem all you have to do is actually open sunroof with tilt button all the way and then close it with tilt button to reset, then it should work with open switch. If you disconnect battery this happens and you have to reset it this way
