Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I read your notes and will help you the best I can. The track cables may be jammed or faulty, so to manually close the roof you will have to drop the motor for the roof and insert a tool into the drive portion of the trac and turn it till closed. If that doesn't work then the trac cables are most likely damaged and you should be able to slide the roof shut with that motor dropped so you can wait till you can get things replaced. Is there any thing else I can help you with?

What I tried to do was recalibrate my sunroof before adjusting it, when I did the calibration pushing the vent button and holding it for 5 seconds, then after that , when opened and closed the roof it wouldn't close all the way, so I did the calibration one where you pull the fuse when it's running in the open position, that's when it stuck in the open position and won't close, is there a software update that can over ride the computer and reset the sunroof
Chrysler Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago

not unless you have it hooked up to a shop scanner. Then it can operate it through active test

Is there anyone else who does that besides a dealer, most dealers here are booked for next two weeks and , curious eat does one run as in cost
Chrysler Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago

I am sorry I don't know what you may have in your area but you can phone around ahead of time and ask if they have a scanner capable of doing that procedure. I can only tell you what we would charge hourly here and that is .5 - 1.0 hr.

ok call around Monday, is there a way that you can pull the switch out and jump the connector to get it closed
Chrysler Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago

that won't work if the ECU for the roof is faulty as it is part of the motor system. only option is manual y closing it.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
