Is it only trying to move on one side when you hit the switch?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

No I dont think so.

Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

But it does try to move, or you hear the motor trying to run when you push the button?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Yes it moves slightly. Seems hung up.

Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

Is this something you want to try to fix yourself, or are you just trying to get it closed until you can get to the repair shop with it?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Either/or. Closed is #1 right now.

Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

It's tough, there's not a way to manually close this roof panel. You say you tried pushing and pulling on it, if you "help" it in the closed direction while pushing the close button, can you get it to move at all?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Not so far. Would I pull it or push ir?

Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

I would try either or, anything to get it moving in the closed direction.

If it truly won't go, there's not a way to manually close it, so hopefully it's not raining where you are and you can get it over to the dealership today to see if they can address it for you.

Unfortunately no time today

Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

Understood.

Read through this bulletin and see if you can get any of these steps to work for you. No promises, but it might wake it up and get it going again.
