My sunroof window won't close when I press the button on my 05 Envoy. Any idea on repair cost to get it to close?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to open my sunroof window and heard a crack almost like the window cracked but it didn't.  Now when i press the button to close the window the passenger side won't close all the way.  drivers side goes down but not passenger side.  It also will not slide all the way open.  Can this be repaired and what is the normal cost to do so?  I gotta get it fixed.....not looking forward to getting rained on or the snow in winter.

This could be a number of things and you'll have to take it in of course to get it properly diagnosed: 1) The window might have come out of its track. This is a fairly simple, quick and inexpensive repair. 2) Something in the mechanism that raises and lowers the window may have broken. It could be one piece of the mechanism...it could be several pieces of the mechanism. This is a slightly more complicated and slightly more expensive repair than #1. 3) Power windows obviously require electricity in order for the switches, relays, actuators, and motors that move the windows up and down to function. You might have a blown fuse, which is an easy, quick, and inexpensive repair. Or...you may have a serious problem with the vehicle's electrical system which could be an expensive repair. Even if it is a serious problem requiring an expensive repair, if you're unable or unwilling to pay for that repair the shop should still be able to move the window manually into the closed position to prevent wind, snow and or rain from getting in, however you may not be able to roll that window down again until you make the repair.
