2013 Explorer XLT
I've got a 2013 Explorer XLT and the the Tilt and Slide buttons do not respond, the sun shade responds but will only go half way so only the rear portion has shade, when pressing close again after the half way point it does not respond to pressing close again but it will open back up uncovering the back half. I have checked fuse 38 under the steering column and fuse 8 in the engine compartment. I feel like it's something simple but have no idea what it could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
The shade is a 2 part operation. Push to open and it goes half way. Push again and it opens the rest of the way. If you want to close it after it is half open, you have to 'pull' down on the switch. Is that what you did or did you 'push' like you mentioned? If you pushed, then it performed normally in that it opened the rest of the way.
As for the moonroof itself, it could be that the motor is no long working. The glass and shade each have their own motor.

The shade quit going past the halfway point, and the sunroof won't do anything.

Have you checked the fuse for the moonroof? If it is good then perhaps the motor is bad.
