Could be a disconnected/broken cable or connection. Also a possible stripped gear in the motor. Sunroof repair is very costly, I was quoted $2000 from the dealer. The cost is mostly labor and a lot of mechanics will not touch it.

There is a great amount of posts on this subject with much detailed info. I repaired mine for just the cost of a new cable. It takes time and patience but I had mine like new in one day. I work very slow and take the time to clean/check everything while the opportunity presents itself.
