Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are a handful of things that could be going on and it will require some testing to determine what is wrong. The problem may be a mechanical failure or an electrical problem. It sounds as if you most likely have mechanical failure. Removal of the headliner and sunroof assembly will most likely be necessary for diagnosis and repair.

Does the glass attempt to move but stops?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
