Sunroof sensor

What is the small sensor on the side of my sunroof track supposed to do? It appears to be at a position to make the window stop at the full closed position between sliding back and popping up.

I have disconnected it and can't tell any difference. Is this something that can be repaired/replaced without getting an entire new sunroof?

OK. I will try this a different way.

From inside the Jeep, how do you know when the sunroof is fully closed? I have only had it working for a few days, and so far I have checked from the outside and tweaked it back and forth until it was closed and level with the roofline.

If it's level with the roof-line, you should be good... Check for leaks, and make sure it isn't due to bad weatherstripping...

Pretty sure its the switch that stops the motor when the sunroof comes down from the "vent" position

Based on where its at, that was my guess. That would also tell me when the sunroof is fully closed...if it worked.
