Unfortunately there is not usually a manual release for an electric sunroof sounds like your best bet is to get that motor replaced. Sorry to be the one give you bad news.

2002 Jaguar XType Sun-roof one-touch operations reset


I had this issue and found the solution around, worth sharing and it takes 30 seconds: <br /> <span> <li>Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.</i></li> <li>Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.</li></span>

Folks -

The "gearbox" is unfortunately under the headliner with no easy access. If you are also experiencing a clicking sound when the motor is activated, the regulator track had slipped position and will need to be reset.

Removing the map light assembly (process below) may help in your initial diagnosis, you can feel the motor mounting screws and the motor assembly to determine if their loose.

I have been through this problem twice now. The first time the motor / gearbox came loose from it's mounts, began slipping (click, click,click), very nasty sound. I remounted the motor with threadlock on the NEW ALLEN HEAD screws, but alas.. two years later (mine's 2006) it slipped again.. I need to drop the headliner once more and have a look. If you would like a copy of your 05/06 FSM, drop me a line.


Here's the RESET procedure from the FSM, absolutely gospel, no other way to fix it:

Sunroof Motor Assembly Note:

Note
• If the guide is removed, initial position setting of the sunroof motor will be required. After installing the sunroof unit, perform initial position setting using the following procedure.

1. Press the TILT UP switch to fully tilt up the glass panel.

2. When the glass panel reaches the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch and press it again for approx. 13 s continuously. Continue pressing the switch until the glass panel automatically stops at the fully tilt up position after reaching the mechanical lock position.

3. When the glass panel stops at the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch, then press it again within 5 s and hold.
Note

• Press the TILT UP switch continuously until the glass panel opens to the fully open position, returns to the fully closed position and then stops.

4. Release the TILT UP switch when the glass panel stops at the fully closed position.


ALSO, Here's the clearance adjustment specs for having the glass panel in the correct resting position:

GLASS PANEL ADJUSTMENT

1. Fully close the glass panel.

2. Measure the gap and height difference between the glass panel and the body.

3. Loosen the glass panel installation screws and move the glass panel to adjust.

IMAGE WONT POST, SORRY

Standard clearance a: 0.2-2.2 mm {0.008-0.08 in} b: 0 mm {0 in}
4. Tighten the screws.

5. Insert any available thin plastic card between the weatherstrip and the body, and verify that they are sealed. (There is resistance when the plastic card is moved.)

IMAGE WONT POST, SORRY

• If they are not sealed, perform Steps 3-4 and adjust again.

MAP LIGHT REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Insert a tape-wrapped flathead screwdriver into the gap between the headliner and the map light.

3. Press the tab and remove the map light.

4. Disconnect the map light connector.

5. Remove the socket, then remove the map light bulb.

6. Install in the reverse order of removal.

SUNROOF UNIT DISASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY

1. Disassemble in the order indicated in the table.

2. Assemble in the reverse order of disassembly.

Sun roof does not work


Dear cz50001: there are only a few things that you, a weekend warrior can do to diagnose and/or fix the problem on your car.
Unfortunately the newer cars get, the more complex they get.
Unfortunately, your car is one which falls in the more complex category. Your car is designed with a "BODY CONTROL MODULE". This little gem gets input from nearly every electrical component in the car including the sunroof. In terms of what you can do to check it out: The fuse box inside the car has roughly 24 fuses positioned vertically 12x12. The fuse located at the lower left side of the box is a 10A "red in color" is for the sunroof. Remove it and look through it to see if it has been burned through the center. If it has, replace it and try the sun roof. If the fuse blows again, you have a short and it would be best left to a professional.
There is another set of circumstances which can occur that will render the sunroof inoperable. If the battery is disconnected or if the sunroof motor had been disconnected, the sunroof will stop operating. To reset the sunroof memory, with the key in the on position, push and hold the sunroof tilt switch in the forward (up) position until the sunroof is fully vented (tilted up) position. It should at that point operate normally. Should those two suggestions not solve your problem, it requires either a dealership with a specialized tool called CONSULT-11 to communicate with the BCM. There are some specialty shops such as mine equipped to deal with your car as well. However, most can not address this type of problem without this diagnostic tool. Good luck.

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.
