Sun roof won't close 2004 Ford Explorer


The roof opening panel is an electronically operated panel that can be opened or closed by the roof opening panel switch. Actuating the switch in either a forward or rearward motion supplies a ground to the roof opening panel motor. The vent and soft-stop functions are controlled by the roof opening panel motor. These positions are obtained when an internal motor cam opens the roof position switch, removing the ground from the switch. The roof opening panel has an express open feature activated when the switch is pressed momentarily. The roof opening panel is closed by continuous activation of the switch until the sunroof stops movement. This function is controlled by the roof opening panel motor.

How can i reset the computer on a peugeot 206 cc


I have a 206 cc of production year 2002 and the following solution worked for me. My problem was that the roof would not close anymore electronically and there were continuous (and annoying) beeps when driving. Following solved my problem:
1. Followed instructions to close the roof manually. This you can normally find on your cars manual. Alternatively have a look at video above for the manual closing of the roof.
2. After successfully closing the roof manually re-position the jumpers to automatic locking position. and re-tighten the depressurization bult.
3. Open the roof normally with the electric roof-switch. (check that the net at trunk is also closed).
These steps helped me reset the automatic roof mechanism.

How to raise and lower the 328ci convertible top manually


I just bought a 1996 328iC (the "C" is for convertible). I bought the car with the knowledge that the roof needed a motor replacement (~$300 for the part alone + ~1-2 hours labor) and that I would need to open and close the roof manually if I wanted to take advantage of the convertible part of the car.

After some trial and error, I figured it out and now it takes me <30 seconds to open or close the top (manually). Note: my top is a semi-electric roof, which I think is what came on the 328iC, you have to lock into place after you close it.

Here's what you do:
1- open all of the windows
2- unlock the roof by turning the latch between the sun visors.
3- push the front of the roof towards the rear of the car - be sure to push in the middle of the roof, where the latch is.
4- lift the back of the roof up off of the roof storage compartment
5- while holding the back of the of the roof up, lift up the roof storage compartment door
6- let go of the back of the roof so that it drops right into the storage compartment
7- push the rest of the roof into the storage compartment
8- close the storage compartment door.

To close the roof, follow the steps above in reverse order. Remember: this is a German car, so you use a little bit (or a lot) of force and you won't hurt it (I think it actually likes it ;-D ).

Good Luck!!!
