A couple of times I've come outside to discover that my sunroof has opened by itself and all the windows are down. Help! Thanks!

are you sitting on the keys or leaning on the open button on your key fob.. press and hold button to open all windows. press and hold lock button should close all windows also.. something simple as this perhaps?

1998 golf gti vr6 power sunroof doesn't close when i turn key at the door

Check your wires and fuses, I am having a similar problem myself as the windows open, but not the sunroof and this is a feature that VW had on most of these models with power locks, even my 96 Gti did it. I will repost with what fixed it ASAP.

My sunroof will not close. I tested my fuses and they seem to be working, no broken ones and changed a few just in case.Tell me whats the next step or problem.2003 nissan murano owner.

Next step is to test the sunroof open/close switch itself, it might be faulty. Don't know the Murano, but often the switch-cover can be removed relatively easy. Test the switch (or better said: the wires fitted to it) with a volt-meter. You should have something like 4 wires; ground, + in, open (= + out), close (= + out).

When the fuse is not blown you should easily determine the + in wire (otherwise the fuse probably is blown), then set/hold the switch to open (or close) and see wether there is a + out voltage. If there is, it's probably the sunroof motor, something for the dealer to tackle ...

PS: Stupid question perhaps, but you're sure the sunroof is not in a "locked" state, some sunroofs have a manual (master-) lock ...

The new module must be calibrated to the car. This might have to be done at the dealer. You can try the following sequence...
with the roof open, push the sunroof switch back for 6 seconds, then forward for 6 seconds. shut the key off for 5 min lock the car(best if you use the remote) and unlock it and retry, if no success, try to push the sunroof switch back 3x quickly, take key out lock car, wait 5 min unlock car and retest (use remote if you have one)

Central locking doesn't work

Hi Steve.I would be checking the fuses in all fuse boxes (there is one in the trunk I believe). Look for water ingress and corrosion.

Can one ajust the window settings to open & close with remote.

NO this can not be done on models before 2009 and im not sure if it can on later models either. but what can be done is as follows

if you insert your key into the door lock from the outside you can open and close the windows. you may have to turn it to the lock position and then unlock and hold the key in this positoin until the windows open .
in the manual it also states that if the roof is down by turning the key in the door lock to the lock position will also close the roof the sunroof along with the windows.

Open the shade cover to access the sunroof from inside the car. On each side of the sunroof (driver and passenger) there is a black accordian looking cosmetic molding, toward the back side of the sunroof (rear of the car) stick your finger behind it at the top and pull you will now be able to see a T25 (torx) screw you will need to slightly loosen it on each side of the car if they are not already loose then push up on the center rear of the sunroof. you may want to have someone outside of the car to tell you the proper height, when you have the proper hight set tighten the screws then replace the molding. You are done, no more noise!

1982 320i bmw sunroof crank

Hi Beemer Lover!

I too love the Beems, have had 1600's, 2002's, a 2002tii(!!!), 320's, and even had a gray market 635 (WOW!).

I believe the sunroof crank attaches like the window cranks... that is there is an outside covering over a metal crank arm that can be pulled away from the metal exposing a hole where an attachment screw fits through it into the sunroof crank splined shaft center.

Hope this helps, and good luck!
