It's getting power, but it sticks in the tracks?

If it's not a power issue, you might try greasing the tracks with something and opening and closing the sunroof a few times so the grease gets worked around. Does it sound like there is debris in the tracks? Maybe you could blow it out.

If it's an electrical issue, this might be worth looking at  - Link

If it comes to it, here are instructions for removing the headliner - Link

Some time ago a member named Ray posted about this issue; there can be electrical problems, but an easy thing to try is to get the roof window partly open then (1) make sure there is no debris blocking anything (2) spray WD-40 or other light penetrating oil, thru a nozzle, on to the mechanism (at the sides of window) BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERSPRAY or drench such that the headliner gets wet at all or stained. Once you have it open, **clean** the tracks. Wipe them off then use an appropriate lubricant (GM Lubriplate, a garage door lithium grease, or some such) to lube the tracks. You don't need much lube. You do need the tracks clean and free of debris.
