for the mean time pop the panel off above your rear view mirror and manually wind it closed. could be the motor is dead or the roof is jammed (something in the tracks perhaps)

He forgot to tell ya there's a tool (allen wrench) in your trunk mounted tool box. The whole procedure is in your owners manuel.
