Q: Sunroof issue on 2003 Chrysler Concorde

Some how in the past two days my sunroof "vent" button got pushed and when we went out today we found it open. I took the glass out, checked the tracks for ice (used blow dryer) or any debris but nothing. Of course this car doesn't have a manual close feature. I was wondering if maybe there was a separate fuse for the sunroof? or is it the same one for the power windows ? as they work. Any ideas on how I could get it closed?

A quick simple way to get it closed (assuming that your sunroof motor is still good) is to take a 12v battery run two wires off it (positive and negative) and attach them directly to the piece of the harness on the sunroof motor that usually has 2 or 3 wires connected to it. If you did it right, the motor should get power and go either open or closed depending on which wire is touching what. If it seems to go more open just reverse the wires and it should close. This also works for power windows and some power lock systems.
