I opened my sunroof today and it opened fine but I went to close it, it would close half way and go back open. they only way I was able to close it was with my friend pushing the roof and me holding the button. is this something that will resolve if I reset the sunroof or is it something to take to the dealer?

Same thing happened to me. Took it to dealer. All they did was clean and grease the tracks the sunroof rides in. Easy fix. Should have thought of that myself since I live and drive on dirt roads.

The roof has a sensor that when it feels force it re opens it. this is for safety reasons. it may happen that the channels were the roof slides get dirty or other debris blocks the way and the runners get stuck. This makes the roof to open again. You can check this on your owner' manual.
