I'm not sure this is the best way to work on this, but we have a 2001 Dodge Neon and the sunroof would not function but you could hear the motor. My wife said she put her right hand on the glass and as she operated the control button with her left hand she applied light pressure on the glass and all of the sudden it worked.

Once she did that, all was fine. I then lubed the rails hoping it was just something that jammed the mechanism.

I would try that first before taking it anywhere and spending $100 to have joe the oil change boy do the same thing.

Hey,having the similar problem and looked it up on a forum.If its not moving but still making the motor noise,theres a good chance your cable on either side is caught or detached.You need to disassemble the sunroof and reattach it.I believe it only requires a screwdriver and an hour or so
