My information is from a Haynes manual for toyota celica supra 1979-1992. the wiring diagram on page 12-31 shows that the "gauge" fuse controls the window power relay. There is also a 30A "power" circuit breaker that feeds power through the relay. The gauge fuse is located under a panel on the left side of the dash on 1982-1986 models. The power window relay is located under the driver's side dash in a "kick" panel fuse box on the left outboard sidewall. The 30A "power" circuit breaker could be located in one of the two aforementioned places, in a fuse block on the passenger's side kick panel, or there is a "specialty" fuse block under the hood next to the air flow meter---the manual isn't clear on the exact location. If you can find the 30A power c.b. you may be able to reset it by pulling it out and pushing a paper clip wire through the reset hole. Reinstall and see if you get power.
There can be several reasons to why it won't close:
- The sunroof may need to be re-initialized. That is just a sequence of moonroof button pushes. Refer to the manual for the instructions, or a Toyota dealer.
- The fuse box might be blown out. There is a fuse box under the left side of the dash. Look inside the cover and you'll see each fuse is labeled according to its purpose. If you don't see a fuse labeled sun or moon roof (or similar) there are a couple of options. 1. The same fuse is shared by power windows (in which case your electric windows won't operate when the fuse is blown). 2. If you have a later model Camry, there's a second fuse/breaker box under the hood. As above, check inside the lid for a map of the fuses/breakers. - The sunroof motor might be faulty. In this case you may want to get an auto-electrician to have a look at it.
The fuse and relay box on the E30 and E36 models is located in the engine compartment. The E36 models also has relay boxes located under the left side of the dashboard. Circuit Breakers Resetting & Replacement Circuit breakers are located inside the fuse panel. They are automatically reset when the problem corrects itself, is repaired, or the circuit cools down to allow operation again.
One of the less known about fuses that can cause all this to go out is the fuseable link. It is in a black plastic box near the battery. It is an appx 60A thin metal strip fuse. Check the website link to the right for more info.
Also, I suggest check your Fuse Diagram in the BMW 525i Owners Manual here. Power Sunroof Emergency Closure Operation The sunroof is equipped with an emergency closure feature should the sunroof motor fail or the vehicle has lost electrical power. To close the sunroof under these conditions:
Remove the front headliner trim panel.
Using the 6mm hex key that is included with the tool kit, insert the key into the hex socket and turn the socket to close the sunroof.

Open the sunroof lid 2-4 inches (5-10cm).
Unclip the roof liner frame and push back into the opening.
Close the sunroof lid and loosen the screws on each end of the gates.
Pull in the retainers, remove the center screws and lift off the lid.
Remove the cover over the motor and gearbox. Close the sunroof lid, if not already closed.
Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the 3 mounting screws. Remove the motor and gearbox.
Push the cables back evenly on both sides. Remove the rail covers and pull the cables out of the guides.
Place the cable in the center position of the gate and press off.
Install the cables to the gate. The cable are marked with the proper side of installation. Do not lubricate fabric covered cables.
Pull the cables through guides and align the cables. Insert a hex key through the gate and cable at the 0 position.
Install the motor and gearbox. The motor and gearbox must be synchronized with the hole in the drivegear aligned between the centers of the 2 gears. Torque the bolts to 2.0 ft. lbs. (2.8 Nm).
Install the sunroof lid. Use new screws and torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
Adjust the sunroof lid. Pull the roof liner frame into position and clip into place.
Close the sunroof fully. With a quick actuation of the sunroof opening button, open the sunroof so the back edge of the lid depresses 0.08-0.12 inches (2-3mm).
Slowly push the roof liner panel back into the roof. Do not force or use a quick motion or damage could occur.
Remove the mounting screws and pull the lid off at the rear side. Do not operate the sunroof with the panel removed.
Install the lid and check that the hooks and levers align. Install the screws with threadlocker or use new micro-encapsulated screws. Torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
Adjust the sunroof lid. Lower the rear of the lid by operating the motor. Pull the liner forward and clip into place.
Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof.
If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows.
If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker.
If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual.
If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.
