SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How to reset oil life on bmw x5 2005

Your BMW has a CBS (conditions based service) system, this is a new standard system for all BMW's produced in 2005 and on, these CBS system cannot be reset without being hooked up at the dealer, there is no currently offered aftermarket tool for this operation that I know of. I understand the frustration of this problem, I own a 2006 325i, with the same CBS system. Hope this helps, let me know

SOURCE: i cannot paire any phone

I know that 2004 BMWs used a Bluetooth protocol that is now obsolete. There are no longer any cell phones made that will pair with a 2004 BMW unless you get a very expensive upgrade to your Bluetooth module from BMW. Not worth it. When my wife got a new phone several years ago, she had to switch to aftermarket Bluetooth devices because as I recall, it was something like $2k to upgrade the Bluetooth in her '04 330i.
I was under the impression that 2005 BMWs use a more current Bluetooth communication protocol, but I don't know that for sure. If your car is an early 2005, I would suspect that perhaps it uses the same protocol as the '04s.

I have a 2005 bmw 535i that is now all of a sudden getting water in the rear passenger side area, we have had BMW clean out the sun roof drainage area but the problem has returned in less than 2 weeks


remove the rr door panel and inspect the vapour barrier which seals the car from water and the elements,ensure the sprip caulk is sealed as if not properly sealed wouold cause a leak, the bmw dealer should have advised you of this issue,good luck

I just had the same problem... the rear glass has 2 suports, which you will need to insert a long screw driver in it and force them back manually... It's a pain, but I can get you all the pictures to this procedure...

Need to know how to initialized the panorama roof.


start the vehicle.

push the center of the sunroof button (make sure its the center and not the forward or aft toggle) and hold it up. you'll have to hold it up for the entire time while it initializes.

after about 4 seconds the roof/shade will start to move. keep holding it until it goes through its entire process.

it will open/close the sunshade, tilt & close the roof and open and close the roof.

if this doesn't work, it may have other issues with the roof.

good luck
