SOURCE: 85 Toyota Cressida. The Sun roof is stuck open!

I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!

SOURCE: Sun Roof won't open

There may be a way to open the sunroof manually by turning the motor with a tool. The motor could be broken and "free spinning" or it could be off track or something is stuck in the track. You just need to take it apart starting with the interior trim the rest should be pretty self explanitory. You may also be able to find a diagram on www.autozone.com.

SOURCE: 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.

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>

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.

2002 Bonneville Sunroof. Fabric on sunshade was loose, was able to pull shade forward, glued fabric but the shade will not go back. Seems to be hitting something in the back. Can you help?


Hi


Inspect the sun roof of your Pontiac Bonneville to make sure it's seated evenly on your vehicle, not raising or lifting at one corner. Lifting indicates the presence of debris on the tracks, or a damaged seal around the sun roof.

Remove the trim on the interior of your Pontiac Bonneville and allow the interior material to drop. Use compressed air to blow dust and debris from the tracks that move your sun roof. Treat the tracks using 3-In-One Lubricant.

Check the Pontiac Bonneville's drain tubes for clogging. Two of these run down the front of your vehicle to the bumpers. Two run to the back, most often by your tail lights. Clear the tubes using compressed air and replace them.

Clean the sun roof's rubber seal with a damp, lint-free cloth. Inspect the seal as you clean

Sun roof will not close all the way. It will almost close, but it stops before the final "lowering". The switch clicks when I press it, but nothing else. I can reopen and close up to that point without a...


Had this problem myself...First make sure the railings around the sunroof are clear of any trash such as leaves and/or dirt. If that doesn't help then you might want to look at your fuses or check to see if your relay needs to be replaced.

Can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof


It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.

Power sun roof


It may be a circuit breaker.My windows and door locks stopped working,even after checking all fuses and replacing Main Driver side door switch! Found three circuit breakers that you can reset with a paper clip or small screwdriver. They were black with an aluminum cover on top. They don't come out easily,just insert the pin on each one.
