It maybe cause by a faulty motor, Hard to close sunroof. I sugest you remove the cover where the ceilling interior light is located and in there you will find an allan key you can use to open/close manually in case of motor malfunction. You should be able to at least find if it is hard or easy to close/open. If it hard to move then it maybe the cause. Hope it help.

I have the same problem. The man at the junk yard said it sounds like a short in the switch. I am going to check it out.

When a sunroof will not close on a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer, check to make sure that the hinges are not rusted. The fuse for the sunroof mechanism is in the fuse box in the dash on the driver's side. It might be possible to close this manually, if the hinges move freely.

Firstly you need to remove the roof console panel in order to reach the sun roof motor spindle. Once that's done you need a 4mm Allen key and insert it into the hole of the sunroof motor spindle, and then turn the Allen key to manually close the sunroof.

If you have a 1997 Camaro with a custom sunroof and need help making it a functional sunroof, you should check into getting an operating motor. A sunroof would ordinarily be able to pop up with the help of a motor.

Depends on your environment. Look in the owners manual. I use 10w-30 in my 1997 Jetta VR6 year-round.

The airbag light, on your 1997 Jetta, can be reset by removing the fuse. Keep the fuse out for 10 seconds. Replace the fuse back to its original position.

To reset the sunroof you must push the sunroof switch up and hold it for a few seconds then turn it to fully opened, then to closed.

You will have to remove the sunroof motor, and the sunroof glass. Then you can move the guide tracks seperately until they are in the closed position. Then you can put the glass and motor back in, remove the power source (fuse or disconnect wire harness) to prevent any accidental opening until you can get it fixed. Chances are that a guide track or cable is broken, this can be a costly fix. Do not take it to the dealership, they will only want to install a whole sunroof unit. Take it to a local shop that installs aftermarket sunroofs.
