Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Is there a crank in the roof, maybe under the control for the roof to close the sunroof? My roof won't close, but you can hear a clicking when you slide the button.

Depending on the year of your Cruiser there may be a way to manually close the sunroof without removing the motor. On my 2004 there is a place for a square drive socket to be inserted and then you can move the sunroof forward or back. This still entails removing the headliner. I guess you could just drop the back half or so if you were careful. The other problem is that if any of the sliding pieces that move the glass are broken then the glass most likely won't lift up into the fully closed position. It will go all the forward, but not raise up at the rear. Another problem can be trash and dirt in the slide areas. Make sure these are clean and I lightly lubricate mine with white grease just to help things slide easier. In my research the motor and switch rarely go bad. It's the plastic and pot metal slides that break and need to be replaced. For that the entire sunroof must come out. Not too tricky for someone mechanically inclined but if you can't do your own brakes, tuneups, and say replacing a water pump you should probably leave it to someone else.

I have a sunroof, it has started closing on it's own, why is this?


What make , model , year vehicle ? Bad input ( sensor ) to the computer that controls it , maybe . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the sunroof control module . To have those code's read you would need to take it to a dealer or someother qualified repair shop.

Wifes sunroof is open and will not close. Checked fuse it has pwr, removed switch it does not have power ... a ground problem at the sunroof motor...where is that?


First off this is controlled by a module (computer) The switch would only have five volts . 5volt reference voltage from the control module . Not knowing how to test the electrical circuit's for this could be expensive . Short out the module or 5 volt ref. voltage circuit inside the module.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Look at a wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click sun roof . Then click search button then the blue link . Now tell me you under stand what's happening here .

Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof control module
• Sunroof Opening Position Switch (SOPS)
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor/actuator
• Sunroof glass (spoiler type, with glass sliding above roof)
• Sunshade
• Rail and track assembly upon which the sunroof glass rides
• Power supply for the sunroof control module: SUNROOF 20 A fuse
• Ground from G302

Sunroof Opening Position Switch (SOPS)
The SOPS tracks the position of the glass through 2 limit switches:
• Soft stop limit
• Vent limit
The sunroof control module monitors the limit switches and based on the inputs determines the position of the sunroof glass. As a limit switch closes, the 5 volt reference will be shorted to the sunroof limit switch low reference circuit, pulling down the 5 volt reference to 0 volts.
The sunroof control module understands the position of the sunroof glass based on the different input combinations through the sunroof limit switch soft stop signal and sunroof limit switch open vent signal circuits.

Power Sunroof Does Not Close
Perform the Initialization/Teach Process any time a new sunroof motor actuator is installed in the vehicle or any time an existing sunroof motor actuator is removed from the vehicle. Refer to Sunroof Motor/Actuator Initialization/Teach Process .

2000 Tahoe sunroof won't fully close


Is there any debris in the track of the window especially towards the front. Thew clicking sound you are hearing may be worn gears in the drivve assembly of the window/power roof mechanism. Is there a limit switch for the sunroof? This may be bad also. Check the easy stuff first and get back with me.

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.

Moonroof wont close all the way


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuit's with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? When adjusting the moon roof did you see any switches ? sunroof limit switch
Measure the reference voltage of the sunroof limit switch soft stop signal circuit at the sunroof control harness connector to a good ground.
Does the reference voltage measure near the specified value?
4.5-5.5 V
Notice: Do not open the sunroof glass past the full open soft stop position. Doing so may damage the sunroof assembly and or the roof top.
Connect a jumper wire to the sunroof limit switch soft stop signal circuit at the sunroof control module harness to a good ground.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Using the sunroof switch, operate the sunroof system, not to exceed the full open soft stop position.
Does the system operate as requested?

Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free one's here

Click the search button then the blue link . See the control module , motor an the two switches ? One is probably miss adjusted . or bad !

Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof control module
• Sunroof motor with the limit switches
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof glass-spoiler type, with glass sliding above roof
• Sunshade
• Rail and track assembly upon which the sunroof glass rides
• Power sunroof system circuit breaker: PWR WDO 25 A
• Ground: G204

Sunroof Limit Switches
The sunroof limit switches track the position of the sunroof glass through two limit switches:
• Soft Stop limit switch through the sunroof limit switch soft stop signal circuit
• Vent Stop limit switch through the sunroof limit switch range signal circuit
The sunroof control module monitors the limit switches and based on the input combinations, determines the position of the sunroof glass. As a sunroof limit switch closes, the 5 volt reference will be shorted to the sunroof limit switch low reference circuit, pulling the 5 volt reference to 0 volts.
The sunroof control module monitors both sunroof switch input requests and based on the sunroof limit switch input combinations, will control an output to the sunroof motor, to drive the sunroof glass to the requested position.

Sunroof Motor
The sunroof has a bi-directional motor. When the motor is not operating both circuits are grounded. When the motor drives the sunroof glass in the direction from the closed to vent or vent to open position, the following occurs:
• Voltage is supplied to the sunroof motor open circuit.
• Ground is maintained to the sunroof motor close circuit.
When the motor drives the sunroof in the direction from the open to vent or vent to closed position, the following occurs:
• Voltage is supplied to the sunroof motor close circuit.
• Ground is maintained to the sunroof motor open circuit.
The sunroof control module is equipped with a timer circuit which stops the operation of the sunroof motor after 8 seconds.

Can't get the sunroof closed. checked the fuses all looked good. i think i pushed the slide part back too far and now it's stuck under the hood of the car. help :(


Most vehicles have a manual crank slot so you can manually close the sunroof. Best thing you can do is unwedge the cover and see if it electrically closes. If you get that sliding cover unstuck and the sun roof still wont close then use the manual crank. You can find that crank usually covered by an upolstery patch just to the side or behind the sunroof itself on the ceiling. Good Luck

Sunroof will not close. The sunroof is stuck in the forward open position. The battery died when the roof was left open and now I cannot close the sunroof. I can hear the relay click when I push the...


Can't say for sure about this particular model, but most vehicles with sunroofs have a manual crank for situations like this. Generally it is located forward of the sunroof on the roof of the interior of the car, sometimes under a panel or interior light. This at least will get the roof closed until the problem can be fixed. It may also allow the sun roof to realign itself and help the electric crank to start working again.

Sunroof will not close


If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.
