SOURCE: sun roof won't close

the limiter switch on your sunroof has died. common to gm's.

you will have to replace the entire motor assembly as the limiter switch is built into the motor assembly.

you can do it yourself of take it to a reputable reapir shop.

I have a `99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a sunroof that won't close. It will open, but only close a few inches. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


Hi, as a general point on sunroofs I have known the white grease used on them to go hard after time and cause them to go tight. Flushing the Runners with a good penetrating oil whilst working the sunroof back and forward can help to free them off, sometimes giving the roof a hand will help to get them moving. jon

Sounds like the motor is worn out try applying some finger pressure on the sun roof and actuate the closer button and it should close it until you can pull your roof panneling back to expose the motor to be change

Unable to close door


I have 2 different door problems with my 99 Park Ave: one door opens more than it should and often can't get it to move to close it and the other door opens but when trying to close it, the door will not latch closed. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by door wouldn't close, but with your mention of the metal parts, I'm gonna take a guess that it doesn't latch closed (kind of bounces back open too). For that problem I do 2 things to avoid actually fixing the problem. First, I check that the door handles are in the closed door position (my outside handle stays stuck out in the pulled position); I push them both in. If that doesn't work, I push down on the latch mechanism in the edge of the door to find that it was stuck in the open position. Once I do those 2 things, my door closes perfectly.
I hope this helped!

My honda odyssey 2002 hood latch stuck it opened the hood and now not closing even droping the hood from difference hight and even pressing it ???


SOUND LIKE YOUR HOOD LATCH IS STUCK IN THE RELEASE POSITION. YOU CAN DO TWO THINGS. REPLACE YOUR HOOD LATCH OR PUSH THE LATCH BACK INTO POSITION MANUALLY EVERYTIME YOU OPEN YOUR HOOD. IT'S EASY. FIRST CHECK YOUR HOOD RELEASE LEVER (DRIVER SIDE KICK PANEL)AND MAKE SURE IT'S MOVING FREELY. IF LEVER IS OK,GO TO YOUR HOOD LATCH. LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF THE LATCH (LOOK DOWN FROM THE TOP VIEW)AND YOU'LL SEE A SMALL METAL BAR WITH A SPRING PULLING DOWN ON IT(MIGHT NEED FLASH LIGHT TO SEE BAR AND SPRING). TAKE A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER AND PUSH DOWN ON THE METAL BAR WHERE SPRING CONNECT. THE BAR SURE MOVE ABOUT 1/4 INCH DOWN. CLOSE YOU HOOD AND YOU'RE DONE. YOU JUST HAVE TO PUSH THE BAR DOWN EVERYTIME YOU OPEN IT.

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.

Electronic vent control not working in Volvo S40


Hi,
I think here, by your description, that there might be something that has slipped inside the vent holes from outside. you can try to blow some compressed air through the vent holes at the bottom of the windscreen.
Otherwise you can try to look under the dash, activate the switch and see if you can locate from where the noise is coming and see if you can reach the mechanism that control the vent. Normally it must be moving free. Otherwise your local mechanic should be able to fix that ufor you.
Cheers.
