i tried to give it a little push and that did not work. also, my intermittent wiper is not working. my other wiper speeds work. could these 2 be related to the same problem?

main relays and sun roof are diff my friend. pop out ur dash under the wheel. there should be grey relays. try switching them. what happen to mine was that one of the relay gone bad so i was only able to open and not close. when i switch i was able to close and not open. this might be the problem. could be the motor as well. good luck

Same thing happened to me, but part of my wind deflector arm had broken off and gotten trapped. I eventually just messed with it till it gone so far back it didn't interfere with the operation of the sunroof anymore.

More than likely relay. Been there with the same problem, relay would click over put wouldn't send current to the motor. Only difference is that mine wouldn't close (real fun, right)? Try tapping the relay a bit with your hand or a screwdriver, see if it frees up, could check the terminals on it as well. If anything, just replace it.

I had a sunroof on my 95 EJ1 that didn't like to slide. I lubed the tracks with silicone spray lube, and it's worked like a dream ever since.
