Sometimes the seal around the sunroof sticks and if you give it a little push thats all it needs to overcome that binding, other times the switch or motor has failed but the fuse should always be checked first. Have a mechanic from YourMechanic test for power at the switch and verify its getting to the motor and that the motor is grounded properly.
