Yet another Sunroof problem

Recommended Posts

I read the forum and found everything there is to find about sunroof problems. And realize that this forum is full of cool little secrets, tip and tricks from the great Loren. Turns out I should have searched for a remedy to the ghostly close re-open halfway thing a long time ago, I thought it was geared wrong or something. Anyway, mine did it every time until today I took it to lunch and attempted to set it in the up position in which it started to go but then stopped halfway so i attempted to close it and it didn't respond. I should have stopped here but went on to attempt to open it again and it began to make some awful noises and to which it is now stuck in the "up" position. Did I break something? I attempted to "retrain it" thinking that it thought it was in the closed position, but it doesn't respond. When I press the button, I can here something inside click.....then click again. no motion...this is the last of a series of things that recently happened to the car (Radiator cooling fan quit, Check engine light came on, now this), and I am getting ready to take it on a trip to Denver from El Paso! Please help!

Well, there is the hand crank for the sunroof (see your owners manual). I would be careful - if it binds too much stop.

A shop with a PST2 or PIWIS can diagnosis the sunroof microswitches to see if one of them has failed. I suggest that.

If one fan on one side stopped then it could be fuse (Right - C8; Left - C10), or a bad ballast, or a bad fan. If it is not the fuse then have the shop with the PST2 check then fan circuits too -- and the CEL fault(s) while they are there.

I tried the handcrank thing and it wouldn't budge, I just want it closed now..I will have to wait until the head mechanic at my shop gets back from France to diagnose it. His assistant is putting in my new radiator colling fan tonight. He had hooked it up to the comp and basically told me that either it isn't plugged in or it is bad...so I checked it and found it plugged in and ordered a new fan...maybe now is a good time to check the fuse I suppose. why am I always doing things backwards?

Just checked the fuses, all are fine...so I don't feel so bad about spontaneously ordering a fan.

Thanks by the way for the quick and insightful reply!
