Hello there, many common faults will cause your 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander sunroof to not function. The most common failure points are the sunroof switch, wiring harness fault, sunroof track, or sunroof motor failure. If no noise is heard at all then the sunroof track is generally functioning properly and the problem is electrical. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your sunroof electronic issues and make any repairs required to get your sunroof working again.
