Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could prevent the sunroof from working. It may be an electrical issue such as a bad motor, it may be a mechanical failure, possibly something foreign blocking movement. It will require some testing to determine what is going on, it's possible that the headliner and sunroof assembly will need to be removed for repair.

Do you hear any noise when attempting to move it?
