You can try doing a reset on the sunroof: Press the 'tilt up' button, wait for sunroof to rise, continue to hold it, the sunroof will rise another 1/2", continue to hold the button, sunroof will go through the entire open and close sequence.

If that doesn't fix it, you'll probably have to go to the dealer.

Engine not running but on, ie put the FOB in and press the start button without your foot on the brake. THEN press and hold the tilt button while it goes through a complete run on the track.
