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: sunroof will not close

If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.

SOURCE: sunroof does not close

I can't tell you how to close it manually but I think you should do a couple of other things first.
Remember I am not there to help you and I am only trying to help so be kind with your rating of me if my ideas fail,
Check the fuses first. It may say sun roof on the diagram on the cover of thefuse box which is probably under the dash.
If it does not say sun roof i don't know what else it would be called.
Just check all the fuses one by one if the diagram doesn't help. You will be looking for a burnt fuse. there is a wire on the inside that will look melted oe burnt. replace it with the same amp type that came out of it. Keep checking the rest of the fuses even if you find a bad one. Sometimes more then one blows at the sametime. If all the fuses are good or your replaced a bad one and it still doesn't work then I will have you check the switch. Yo7u can take the switch out and pull the two wires off remembering where they went. There may be three wires but only pull two off at a time. You want to touch two together using different combinations until the roof closes or trys to move. if this works then it is your switch. Be sure to have the key on in the on position while testing this. it will not shock you so don't worry. If the ends of the switch wires are coverd then you will need to get a wire that you can bend and put in to the two ends conncting them to make a good circuit. The must touch metal to metal. If all the combinations fail then it may be a bad motor after all.
So these are my ideas, I hope I got lucky and saved you tons of cash, Raz

How can I manually close the Panoramic Vista Roof in my 2008 Ford Edge SEL?

There is usually a removable plug, and when you remove it, you will see a socket that has a slot for a winding handle that you will have in your tool kit.

However, it sounds like yours has rotted out. You need a dealership. Duct tape until you can get there.
