2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems

For some reason the thing will not stay closed....for instance when you shut the vehicle off, it is suppose to full shut(and seal itself form water leaks) but mine closes, raises up shut tight, the lowers about a half inch or so, so water can leak in the back side of it.... while the vehicle is running and i shut it, it shuts completely tight, but if i roll down other windows it does the same thing...lower about a half inch.... so my question is.... is this a serious electricl problem through the car, or just a bad motor?

    according to your info, it is a factory sunroof as there is no seal around the painted surface

  • thebozz333 Jun 26, 2009

    It responds to the control switch, all windows, including sunroof have power. the issue is when you shut the vehicle off, its programed to shut the sunroof, but instead it seems like it leaves it in a vented poistion, not fully up and closed. also seems to drop to a vented position when you open other windows while driving, as if its an electrical surge hiting the sunroof motor. so my question is, should my next step still be replace the sunroof control module first?

    Is this a factory sunroof? You can tell by looking at the roof where the glass seals. A factory roof seals directly onto the painted surface, but an add on aftermarket one will have a black frame around it that the glass seals on. I ask because this sounds like something an aftermarket roof would do.

Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure

  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

    The control module is what determines when to send power to the motor. That would be the most likely cause. Since this is a locked software module ,it can't be reprogrammed, therefore must be replaced. Remember, all electrical parts are non returnable once plugged in, so make sure the diagnostic charge you are saving by attempting the repair are worth the possibility of guessing wrong.

2007 chevy equinox has problems with stabilock and traction control lights coming on after I had the spark plugs changed


Changing the sparkplugs has nothing to do with these lights, the trac control and stabilock would not be affected with just replacing sparkplugs, i assume the check engine light is not on since theres no mention of it , if the engine light were to be on then there may be a connection, the computer will turn off these systems if it turns on the check engine light for any reason, when the engine is not running as its suppose to the computer shuts down these systems because they can not operate correctly with a engine light on.

2005 equinox a/c unit blower comes on and shuts off randomly and sometimes stays off for days...but blows cold air


I have the same problem. I brought it to the local chevy dealer to run a test. The following is quoted from the chevy dealer. "The tech found that the circuit for speed#1 in the resistor was open and removed blower motor and found internal damage-will fail soon. Vehicle needs new blower motor and resistor parts and labor - $414.28." It makes sence but the lady in front of me was complaining about a $800 bill for a diagnostic that did not fix her problem. They where now asking for another $500 to take another shot at it.

2005 chevy equinox brake lights stay on even after car is turned off, i believe the brake switch is sticking.


With the vehicle off unplug electrical connector on master cylinder. If lite is still on your right. You can usually see where this circuit grounds?shorts out.

If lite goes off... Now you have a little bit of a head ache.
For safety reasons double check for leaks. If the system has no leaks you have to back probe that circuit to find that short.

2005 Chevy Equinox the key will not turn past the ACC position so it can not be started. Also, when unlock button hit on remote dash lights flash.


Equinox/Torrent body vehicles have a common ign cylinder problem. The repair is supposed to be to remove the cylinder , clean and coat end with PTE grease. This seldom works. The best way to fix a non turning cylinder is to replace it.
