A gear is stripped or a cable is broken
i worked at a Saturn dealership for a year in the parts dept and the only way to close the sunroof manually is to use the gear the motor drives. i can't remember but some or the sunroofs were direct drive som using the gear may not be an option.
the transmission is always in gear. if its not there is probably a stripped gear in the transmission.
Check to see if the motor makes any noise like clicking., if that is the case, the gears on it are stripped and not grabbing the cables Have the same problem and I am looking to see if I can get just the gear. My motor is strong enough.
It sounds like the film advance gear has stripped out.
The window crank slips because the regulator gear has most likely stripped. You will need to remove the outer door panel to verify for sure but unless the crank is broken (It would fall off if it was) the regulator is stripped
I have the same problem.. I am going to be working on finding out the answer. Just gotta figure out how to get the headliner out. Its all pretty much out except the part that's attached at the sunroof Don't have the sunroof fixed yet, but have the headliner out. On mine there is a rubber strip that goes around the headliner/sunroof opening. You just pull that strip off then very carefully peel back the headliner material. My dad is a mechanic and said it sounds like a gear is stripped. He said that there could be a bigger gear and smaller gear. Haven't quite looked into that part yet. But if anyone else is having these problems and would like to keep up with me and my progress on it then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I got the motor out and the motor and the little gear is all built in together so you just have to buy a new motor. Dealerships will probably cost about 330 dollars for a new one. I suggest looking around at a junk yard or finding a place that can rebuild them. I found a place that sells rebuilt ones and the guy told me 50 bucks. I get it this Tuesday Nov 18th 08.... so that's all I can help out with. When I had the motor out I hooked the switch back into it and I could hold the gear in place with my fingers.

I would like to know as well.... I have a 2001 dodge neon and I need to get to the mechanics of the sunroof but I dont know how to get to it.... On my sunroof everytime you try to close it, it just sound like the gear is just griding but it will open with no problem but does not close....
the switch.? shift in 1st gear and look in front of your hand on the shifter console. or the actual switch is behind the middle modesty cover on the inside sunroof
Stripped transmission, low transmission fluid.
i believe the cause of this is a stripped starter gear, or the gears on your flywheel are shredded.
