Customer Question
I have a 2002 jeep...
I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee. My sunroof will vent upwards and down it will open, but will not slide close. I have to literally push it hard as hell to try and close it and still it leaves a gap. After a few mins (20 min) of opening and closing (with force), it will close . i don't know what to do now. I haven't used my sunroof in 6 months.ūüė≠

You will need a scantool to retrieve the codes from the sunroof module to determine the issue.. Are you going to doing the repairs?

Do you hear it binding when you try to close it or does it not do anything? So after working it back and forth for 20 minutes does it open and close fine?

Do you see any debris in the slide tracks? It would either be a track or motor issue..

I can't see any, but that doesn't mean it's none there. About how much is a track or motor?
Jeep Mechanic: Brad, Jeep Dealership Tech replied 3 years ago
If I could get the last 8 of your VIN I would be glad to check for you..
