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.

SOURCE: sunroof will not close

If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.

SOURCE: my 2004 toyota solara sunroof wont open or close.

Sounds like the gears are worn out, or out of adjustment.

SOURCE: sunroof wont close on 1990 celica gti

some cars sunroof regulators come with a couple settings in sunroof
1 the 30 degree back tilt
2 half open stop sun roof
3 full open sunroof
these are common on sunroofs

now lets look at what could be the cause
bad regulator or needed greased gears
track needs to be cleaned which can stick the wheels down
most sunroofed vehicle regulators or gear boxes you will find in the trunk way up by the wheel wells in that little compartment tight to get out
also there should be a manual crank for sunroof placed somewhere in vehicle i know for my bmw it was back in the trunk on the gear box you will have to call dealer or look in manual to find sunroof manual crank and how to close
recommend taken to the closes dealer and have them service your sunroof mechanicals and have it cleaned up
sunroofs like cars needs to be cleaned on a certain milelage interval so that it will work for a long time

KA sunroof won't open


sunroofs are a total pain to work on and are very delicate as to moving parts and adjustments. if you are not really mechanically inclined I would not mess with it. take it to a technician if you can afford it. If you think you can work on an intricate and sensitive mechanism and realize that once you get into it it may not close anymore then go ahead. If it is closed now I would just act like you don't have a sunroof anymore and leave it alone, lucky it is not locked in the open position. If you insist on working on it yourself you can remove the glass easily enough by looking into the opening from the inside and remove screws, should be four, 2 each side front and back. after removing the screws you can see most everything from the roof side and tell if something is out of place or debris is interrupting operation. good luck, you are going to need it.

2011 kia optima sunroof won't close


I found the web reference below at a different fix-it site ... for your exact year & model Kia
So if the phonebook method does not work you might try this:

"It's reopening because of obstacle detection. When sunroof motor current draw goes high the module will reverse the motor because it thinks it has hit something.
The issue may be calibration, the motor, a damaged guide, foreign debris preventing proper movement, or it could be the module itself. Depending on what the issue is you may or may not be able to get it closed until the problem is repaired.
First disconnect the battery to clear the module's memory. Once the battery is reconnected turn the key on, press and hold the sunroof open button. Continue holding the button for ten seconds after it is full open.
Then press and hold the close button and see if it will go full closed. If it does close continue to hold the button again for ten seconds.
If this doesn't work then the problem is going to need to be repaired for it to close."

Helpful?
Good luck on your troubleshooting

Sunroof on 2003 jetta tdi won't close. it has power, and operates, but will always reopen, by itself, when it is almost closed. ???


There may be something obstructing the path. Possibly the wind deflector? It's also possible that the sunroof knob is out of sync with the sunroof itself. Try putting your key in the drivers door lock, turning and holding that position while the sunroof closes. (not sure which way you have to turn) You can also close it manually with a hand crank (which is actually an allen wrench)
