Sunroof not opening

Hi I got a dodge neon and the sun roof will not open, I checked the fuses and its fine and then i cranked the motor using the manual tool and it opened and when i went to close it with the automatic button it closed. So I can't open the sunroof but the close button works. What is the problem? Thanks

Could have a bad switch or motor that works in one direction. Power the motor and see if it opens and closes. If so, bad switch.

Bring power directly from the battery to the motor. Does it work in both directions? If not, the motor is bad. It could go one way and not reverse.

Likely a bad switch before a bad motor though.
