Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

Open Question

1996 Nissan Maxima sunroof won't close all the way.

I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima and the sunroof opens fine but I have to pull it closed. I took out the sunroof assembly and took everything apart, I cleaned it thoroughly, greased all linkages and places of contact. I also took the motor out and cleaned and greased the gears, I did some research and I think I knocked out the alignment of the sensors in the motor which I have to realign. the issue still stands that it wont pop up to meet the roof, when I had the assembly out I checked all of the moving parts and found nothing that was broken or missing. The sunroof opens fine but I have to pull the glass closed.

Hi

Please check this very useful link about how to close the sunroof, hope it will help:-

http://forums.maxima.org/4th-generation-maxima-1995-1999/612043-sunroof-will-open-but-not-close-please-help.html

Also try opening sunroof with tilt button all the way and then close it with tilt button to reset, then it should work with open switch. If you disconnect battery this happens and you have to reset it this way.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

sorry age will do that to sun roofs. silicone sealer for the winter may be a thought. if motorized the motor and linkage can be replaced and fix the problem but is not coast effective.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. I assume that the linkage is the problem since the motor works fine."

My 1995 nissan maxima has a sun roof that will not close any more than half way. how do i get it shut? im not concerned with reopening it, just getting it closed. thank you in advance.


I have a maxima 1996 and when I lock doors with fob control, and sun roof is open, it will close along with doors. Try this way. Also check fuses under dash and sunroof relay.

96 I30 infinity Sun roof is open and I can't close it.


Try checking the fuse first, it could be that simple. Some times there's is a place to manually crank it closed, that's covered up by piece of small trim on your headliner usually before the sunroof opening or after. Good Luck

Sunroof on 1990 maxima will not close


My '91 does the same thing. There is a thin metal wind deflector (about one inch wide with holes in it across the front edge of the sunroof opening. It should flip down to allow the glass to close all the way but sometimes it doesn't flip down all the way. Use something flat and thin like a credit card to hold it down while you close the roof. Works for me.

2003 maxima sunroof won't close


Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.

Sunroof is stuck in open position. No movement when attempting to close. No debris in sunroof's path. Fuse is good. What now?


I have the same problem on my car and took it to the dealership to get it checked, they said that the 2001 is the one of the only years that doesn't have a manual close function. They told me my motor was completely dead and the only way to close it is to replace the motor. My only problem is knowing where the motor is. I would have yours checked if you haven't already.
