Moon roof jamming.

Moon roof slides foward to closing position but one of the two lockdown brackets fails to move. Tried forcing it foward, it wont budge. Dealer wants $1200 to replace unit. I'd be happy to just get it closed!

WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD A 2004 CADILLAC CTS REPAIR MANUEL?


Here's a description the sun roof
Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof module
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor, with 2 hall effect sensors and limit switch
• Sunroof window
• Sunroof sunshade panel
• Power supply for the sunroof module: RAP 25 A
• Ground G402

Override
The override function is used when needing to force a closing of the sunroof window. To override the system:
Turn ignition to ON.
Rotate the sunroof switch to the close position.
Press upward.
The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. As long as the sunroof module sees this input, it will continue to slide the sunroof window to close, regardless of the other sunroof switch data circuits inputs.

Ford escape 2014 power moon roof barely tilts open


This is normal. The reason it raises higher is due to the design of the sliding arms in the moon roof. without going into too much detail, the reason it raises before closing is to "unlock" itself from from the "Locked" open Position in order to get to the "Locked" closed position. Its a fancy way of making it seal well when closed and not rattle when open

Sunroof stuck open, think the switch maybe bad


I have same problem. Below are a couple of suggestions from LincolnOnLine.com on how to close the sunroof manually. The first relates to a '93 and I'm not sure about the second. Use this info at your own risk. If you get a better answer, PLEASE POST IT HERE FOR ME. Thanks. Mort


Here is the text from my 93 Manual. There is an access panel in the rear centre of the headliner if it is the same as my 93.

Manual Operation

To close the sliding panel manually, remove the roof access hole trim panel located at the rear of the moon roof assembly. Remove the motor and bracket assembly as outlined to expose the splined shaft of the moon roof drive gear box. Using a typical corporate door window regulator crank handle properly set on the splined shaft, crank the moon roof panel closed.

Motor

CAUTION:
It is recommended that the battery ground cable be disconnected when removing or installing the moon roof motor assembly.


Removal and Installation

1. Operate glass panel until rear of glass panel is flush with sheet metal surface.

2. Remove motor access cover.

3. Remove two motor retaining screws.

4. Lower motor away from splined motor gear and disconnect electrical connector.

5. To install, reverse Removal procedure and synchronize motor as outlined under Adjustments.

Good Luck! __________________

Sunroof not closing


The position of the roof is determined by a pair of small electronic switches pushed up against a gear ajacent to the gear that drives the roof back and forth.

When "calibrating" the roof position to the logic (controller) You need to seperate the motor from the roof asy. command it wide open, then manually slide your roof open. Once close, use a flat-head scrwedriver to push the cords where the gear normally would the rest of the way to the alignment marks.

This is located near the back of the track, the two silver hatch marks on the plastic tilt slide should be just behind the track opening if I'm remembering correctly.

Once everything is lined up, it should work great. If your off by a tooth or two, pull the motor, and move it with the scewdriver, and try again.

It needs to be exact.

Sunroof stuck open...electronic switch clicks when pushed to open position...but nothing when trying to close...can this be manually closed or is there a breaker or something that can be reset?


The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.

To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.

3 bolts hold the motor up.

With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.

Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.

Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

Sunroofs off track and wont close


If your indicating the roof is crooked, that's odd... The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth, impossible to go crooked unless really jammed or tampered with.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two switches on the gear fail and no longer provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.

To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.

Hope the info is helpful.

Sunroof doesn"t open or close


Section 01-17: Roof Panel, Sliding—Electric 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Electric Operation The sliding roof panel (502B98):
  • is available as an option.
  • is electrically operated through the accessory delay relay (controlled by generic electronic module (GEM)).
  • is of self-storing design.
  • requires a specific headliner.
  • utilizes a unique roof console and dome lamp.
  • has an air deflector.
The electrical system operates in the following manner:
  • Two switches control movement of the roof panel.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch (15B691) is rocked rearward, the roof sliding outer glass panel (502A82) slides into the storage space between the roof trim panel (51968) and the roof panel, exposing an opening over the front seats.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully back in the storage space, the roof sliding outer glass panel moves forward from the storage position.
  • The rear portion of the roof sliding outer glass panel moves upward on two lifter arms near the end of the forward travel, allowing a weather-tight seal when the roof sliding outer glass panel is closed.
  • An AUTO feature allows the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch to be touched momentarily to cause the roof panel to automatically move to the fully open position.
  • When the TILT roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully forward, the rear of the roof sliding outer glass panel pops up to the VENT position.
  • With the roof sliding outer glass panel in the VENT position, rocking the TILT roof sliding panel switch rearward closes the roof sliding outer glass panel.
