Inalfa sun roof installed 3-29-04 in a Cad CTS 2004--will slide open but will not close all the way--any ideas on what to check?

The Inalfa sun roof stopped working several years ago--would not open just grinding motor noise. Then last week after going through a car wash, the sun roof would open and shut every time I would turn the car off. This went on for one week and then two days ago the sun roof now slides open (no up and down movement) every time I shut the engine off but it will not close.

could be a partially broken wire in the wiring harness that runs in the door track. the wires are inside what looks like a plastic chain that allows it to move with the door and have seen them partially break not allowing power to flow the whole time

2 possible solutions. First clean the door pin contacts(multiple spring loaded pins on door side and matching plate on body) with a scotch pad until shiny gold color again. Second the rear edge of the door should be 1mm inside the body opening when closed. If those are correct it is going to take a software download from a dealer to the door control module to fix this. Otherwise you will have to pull the psd fuse and breaker from the right side dash fuse box.

Here's a description the sun roof
Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof module
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor, with 2 hall effect sensors and limit switch
• Sunroof window
• Sunroof sunshade panel
• Power supply for the sunroof module: RAP 25 A
• Ground G402

Override
The override function is used when needing to force a closing of the sunroof window. To override the system:
Turn ignition to ON.
Rotate the sunroof switch to the close position.
Press upward.
The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. As long as the sunroof module sees this input, it will continue to slide the sunroof window to close, regardless of the other sunroof switch data circuits inputs.

Just bought a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Wide Track and the sun roof will not open and makes no noise when control button is pressed. Investigated and found that the motor that opens and closes the sunroof is...


Hi.
I was having trouble with my sun roof on a 2004 Montecarlo. I had two issues water coming in and would not operate fully. I could toggle the switch and it would not move very far. this is what I found. I started to pull down the lining and saw that the motor was in front of the sun roof.
I found the drain lines on the front side corners of the tray around the inside of the sun roof. I found that the tube ran down the pillar's and out between the door hinge's. I took them off and blow them out one was plugged up. That fixed the water problem. The roof would move with help from me pushing. I got it opened and noticed the grease was hard. I cleaned up the grease and removed most of it with WD40.
Now the sun roof works good as new.
I thought the water problem was because the roof was not fully closed but I guess it is designed to have water pass by the roof seal and have it drain away. I always noticed water under the car after a rain or a car wash but did not realize iit was the sun roof draining.

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.


caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

My heating and AC blower motor continues to run even after car is turned off and key is removed, on my 2003 outlander.


Right disconnect the battery and see if stops as i have had this problem before and the cause is a solar panel in the sun roof will cause this motor to run to keep the interior temperature down on a hot day .This had me well baffled last week with a AUDI A8 i spent a short while thinking what the noise was then when i found the noise was the blower motor i started to try to think of all the causes i think off then i looked for the fuse board when i thought disconnect the battery first --- and the noise still continued and it was hot over 30? C so i took my overhauls off and threw them over the roof getting ready to look for a second battery somewhere and the noise stopped ,removed the overhauls and it started again so look at the sun roof and it had a solar panel in the glass .BOY DID I FEEL LIKE A IDIOT

Chevrolet 2004 Tahoe Sun Roof Problem


I have built, repaired and installed sunroofs for 20 years. Its hard to tell what problem is, so many variations for motors with relays, cams, programed circuit boards. To get the roof closed you can drop motor usually 3 screws then pull glass forward as far as you can, then from inside of truck you will have to take a screw driver and finish sliding cable forward somehow. When sliding by hand watch on the inside to see what parts are moving so you can finish sliding forward. Hope this helps.
