Open Question

How can I get my windows and sunroof to move again in my volvo?

None of the windows or the sunroof will move. If i can get them to move it is only an inch then they will not go back up for several hours. Tried replacing the master switch but it didn't affect anything. Please help.

It is a rather involved procedure requiring the removal of the headliner and all the related trim work of the interior of your car. If you have never done it before it is quite likely to cost less to take it to a dealership for repair.

SOURCE: volvo sunroof replacement

well take the plastic covers off from inside car they are blocking the rails. then there are 2 screws on each side that you need o take out. First you need to take inside Sunroom cover out there are clips to do this from on top of cover that holds it in the trail it says in. once that is done them finish taking out the screws and have a friend get on one side and u on the otherand lift it gently out. Its easy. relax and have a good conversation while you are doing this. make sure you do not loose the screws and the clips arnt broken on the inside roof cover. enjoy and Good luck

I'm supposing that you have checked the fuses and they are OK - both are powered by the same fuse. In that case you have a bad contact in the wiring - a power wire has been disconnected.
Start by checking the connections in the rear of the fuse box then follow them thru the harness . If you can't detect any fault this way you will have to dismantle the console and follow the power wire from the switch up to the fusebox to identify the fault.
This is a big job, don't start it unless you have a basic experience in car electrics and a full free day.

2001 Volvo s80 .I closed the sunroof now it won't open

Check the fuse. If that is good then try listening for the motor trying to operate. If you can hear the motor trying to operate then you must have a stuck sunroof.

Sunroof switch stopped working, sunroof stuck open how can i manually close it, and where can i get a replacement switch

  1. Most part store should have this avaiable
  2. dont forget to check the fuse
  3. as far as manually closing dont know of anyway that is near simple
  4. Open the hood on your Volvo 940 and loosen the negative battery cable with your socket set. Take the negative battery cable off after you have loosened the nut.
  5. Find your Volvo's sunroof switch on the overhead console between the visors. Locate the small retaining screw at the back of the window-controller button's plastic housing.

  6. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove that screw. Set it aside in and then remove the plastic housing.

  7. Find the wiring harness plug in the back of the switch. Press in the two tabs on the sides of the plug and pull it out. The two tabs are on the sides of the plug. Pull the old switch out and set the new one in place with your fingers.

  8. Plug the wiring harness into the back of your Volvo's new sunroof switch. Hold the new switch up and replace the plastic housing. Install the screw to hold the plastic in place.

  9. Replace your Volvo's negative battery cable.

Sun roof will not open or close

First check your fuse box, for any fuse blow, position 26 in the Passenger Fuse Box (Box C), then keep in mind that the power sunroof is controlled by a switch that selects the direction of travel of the sunroof. The switch changes the polarity of the voltage going to the sunroof motor. This changes the rotation of the motor, thereby changing the direction of sunroof travel.

(see Figure 1)
  1. Open the sunroof to the ventilation position.
  2. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  3. Push down the sunroof headlining with a finger. Unhook the retaining springs with a bent piece of wire.
  4. Pull down on the headlining sufficiently to pass beneath the gutter rail. At the same time, slide the sunroof to the rear to release the catches at the front.
Do not pull the sunroof too far to the rear; otherwise, it will be difficult to remove again.
  1. Unhook the spring retaining brackets.
  2. Remove the retaining screws from the sides and front.
  3. Remove the sunroof.
To install:
  1. Fit the sunroof into position and install the retaining screws.
  2. Install the spring retaining brackets.
  3. Slide the sunroof forward to engage the catches in the front.
  4. Install or reposition any trim moved for access.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this help).

2001 Volvo V70 with sun sitting in heavy rain..return to car both front drivers side and passenger side footwells were full of water. What could cause the windows were not open or the...

Not familiar with the Volvo, but many cars (Toyota, Lexus, Acura, Honda, etc.) have drain holes at the corners of the sun roof assembly. These holes allow water that gets past the sunroof gasket to drain through tubes that carry the water to the bottom of the car, where it exits the car.

These drain holes are prone to clogging. If the Volvo setup is like those cars mentioned, you can see the front drain holes by opening the sunroof and looking closely at the two front corners of the assembly that holds the sunroof. I have used plastic weedeater line to open up these lines. Compressed air can also be used.

Sounds like you have some wiring issues. Did you recently install any new hardware into your car? If so, I would check all the wiring to make sure it is correct and that you are not shorting anything out. Also check all the fuses to make sure none are blown or need replacing.

Sunroof leak

You could change the gasket surrounding the sunroof Others have tried to seal the worn out gasket with epoxy. Here's a page from the Volvo forum I found that should help. If you want to replace the gasket yourself, it's not a difficult process.

1992 Volvo 940 Gl Sunroof Problem

to find out if it is off its track you can remove the cover between the rearview and the sunroof that is the motor/drive assembly. there is a slotted pin in this assemply that you turn with a screwdriver to move the sunroof manually if it wont move manually then you have a bigger issue. sometimes thie drive assembly screws get loose, i believe there are two screws that hold it up,when those are loose you will get a grinding sound when the gears skip. good luck.
