Agreed, no way to tell without further in-person diagnosis.


dude...idk lol maybe u should change the fuse even tho it partly works...its worth a try because my sunroof stopped working and changed the fuse and BOOM it worked


Start with the cheap fixes first: (1) check the fuse (2) check the switch itself (3) check the motor in the trunk. If it's none of those, take it someone who specializes in sunroof repair - it's time consuming and can be expensive ( $1000?)


where is the fuse??
