2002 Nissan Altima Sunroof - Will not open / No Power ?

I have never had a problem with the sunroof before. Now my Sunroof will not open. I have tried to reset according to Nissan owner's manual without any luck. I did change out the battery in the car over the winter. Owner's Manual says this may require resetting the sunroof by holding the open/close switch down in the close position continouesly, but I have had no success with the reset. I have checked all fuses under dash & in the engine compartment and all are OK. Suspect possible switch may be bad but have no way to test switch. Any Ideas ???? Also, are there any power modules or anything related that might control power to the sunroof in the fuse block that is located in the engine compartment. There are no fuses in either location that are labeled for the sunroof. Thanks, JP

In most newr vehicles if there is a electronic motor for a function such as a sun roof there are not only a fuse but a relay as well. the relay will be located in the power distribution box under the hood. when it comes to switches through normal use the contacts inside become worn so often times that is the first part to fail in the circuit. your sun roof is not computer controled so i doubt there is a reset for it. my bet is on a faulty switch. replace the swith and the problem will be solved if the relay is good.

Nissan altima sunroof wont close all the way. It closes, but the rear of the window doesnt lift to create the seal at the back of the window. Any suggestions?


hi,
With the car OFF and sunroof OPEN inspect all around the sunroof's frame. If nothing found that might be in the way (rocks, twigs, etc.), turn on the car CLOSE the sunroof and see if you can push it UP while closing to 'help it'. If it works, I'd just leave it closed 'til you can take it to the dealer/shop to fix it.

My sunroof will not open. It will pop up and down but will not slide back. Someone told me there is a fuse for the sunroof, but I cannot find one.


if it pops open then its not a fuse,its getting power if it pops open, the common problem with these maximas is that the retract arm that opens sunroof breaks and the only way to repair this is to replace the sunroof track.
