    Sunroof jammed

    Oh the never ending joys of this car. Sunroof popped open randomly, now it won't close. Gets half way, stops like it hit something, and opens back up. Any ideas??? Thanks

    Nevermind. So... hold the window lock button, and hit the switch to close the roof. Innnnnnteresting...very very innnnnteresting. Slight aggravation, but at least this wasn't $200, needed to be programmed to the car, and wasn't preventing it from being driven.

    Never heard of that combination of switches to hold, may have fixed my sunroof problem as well.

    You can always close the roof manually.

    Found that after a 30 minute Google search and reading a few pages. No, I couldn't manually close it. The tracks feel like something was jammed on them, they need to be lubricated, and it sounded like metal scraping glass when I managed to budge it. Can't see anything on them, and considering half the car seems unbreakable, and half of it is cheap GM plastic and soft metal, I really didn't want to risk breaking anything at the moment.
