Hello, if you don’t hear the motor even try to work, you may want to check the fuses. If you hear the motor and it moves in small increments, you may want to try closing the sunroof by activating the close position multiple times while it’s closing, to see if it will close all the way. If it does, you may want to refer to your owner’s manual for instructions on synchronizing the sunroof. If it fails to close or stop closing during synchronization, then it could be something that is blocking the sunroof from closing. In this case, the tracks and motor must be inspected to see if a fault can be found. Being that most modern sunroof uses a lot of plastic, it possible that something broke. If you would like to have a professional take care of this for you, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your sunroof and determine what repairs are needed.
