Before just replacing parts testing for B+ voltage an ground at the switch is the proper way to diagnose electrically controlled componets . This video is on testing power windows but will work to show how to check your problem too .

Sunroof does not open. Fuse is ok and the shade operates normally.


Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ?????? How to read a wiring diagrams ???? http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html .Videos on youtube Ohms Law Tech Tip from L1 with Dave Hobbs Copy of Voltage Drop Essentials TST Motor Age The only way to find the problem , testing !

Sunroof Description and Operation (One Connector System)
Sunroof
This diagnostic procedure is to be used for the 1 connector Sunroof System that combines the sunroof control module with the sunroof motor/actuator.
The Sunroof System consists of the following components:
• BATT MAIN 2 Fuse 50 A
• Body control module (BCM)
• RAP relay
• S/Roof Fuse 20 A
• Sunroof module (includes sunroof motor/actuator)
• Sunroof switch
The Sunroof System is controlled by the sunroof switch and the sunroof motor/actuator assembly.
When the ignition is turned to RUN or ACCESSORY, or when the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active, the body control module (BCM) applies a ground to the RAP relay in the instrument panel (I/P) fuse block. This activates the RAP relay and allows battery positive voltage to be applied through the SUNROOF Fuse to the sunroof module. Ground for the sunroof module is supplied from G302.
The sunroof can be placed in 3 preset positions:
• Open
• Vent
• Closed
When the sunroof switch is placed in the OPEN position, a ground is applied from the sunroof switch low reference circuit , through the sunroof switch and to the sunroof switch open signal circuit. The sunroof motor/actuator then applies voltage to the sunroof motor open control circuit and applies a ground to the sunroof motor close circuit. The sunroof motor then opens the sunroof to the full open position.
When the sunroof switch is placed in the VENT position, a ground is applied from the sunroof switch low reference circuit , through the sunroof switch and to the sunroof switch open signal circuit. The sunroof module then applies voltage to the sunroof motor open control circuit and applies a ground to the sunroof motor close circuit. The sunroof motor then opens the sunroof to the VENT position.
When the sunroof switch is placed and held in the CLOSED position, a ground is applied from the sunroof switch low reference circuit , through the sunroof switch and to the sunroof switch close signal circuit. The sunroof module then applies voltage to the sunroof motor close control circuit and applies a ground to the sunroof motor open circuit. The sunroof motor then closes the sunroof.
The sunroof can be placed in any preferred open position when:
• The sunroof is in the fully opened position by pressing and holding the sunroof switch in the CLOSE position until the panel has reached the desired position then release the CLOSE switch in order to stop the sunroof
• The sunroof is opening, it can be stopped by momentarily pressing either side of the switch.
The sunroof control module, sun roof actuator, and the sunroof motor are integral parts of the sunroof module assembly and are not service separately.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop or buick dealer .

My sunroof on my 2002 Solara is open and when I attempt to close it..it turn to close but suddenly stops halfway and opens again. I attempted to close it again same result..


check wiring for the micro switches to open and to close
if it reverses half way through an operation it indicates faulty switches or wiring loose or shorting out

Sunroof retracts fully and lifts but will not close tight on left side


you might be lucky and it just needs the cable greasing. in the mecanisme you will find a cable that is twisted and has brushes on it, use spray grease on this from one end to the other best to do both sides as the cable goes round. also grease the catches , then close the window and put to raised position and from inside spray grease into the arms on either side, run the window back and though though the settings a few times an repeat the greasing as you go.

I have had my 04 Kia Sorento for 5 days & the sunroof is nuts!!!


According to the 2003 owner's manual (2004 should be similar) there is a specific procedure for calibrating the moon-roof's controller. The electronic controller may have lost its calibration settings due to an electrical glitch or disconnected battery.

Look up he exact procedure in your owner's manual as it may vary between different mdel years or OEM moon-roof suppliers.

Volvo V7 '01 sunroof will not stop in closed position


I think I know the answer....your gear has slipped on the cable a few teeth. Set the roof to the desired closed position, flush with your roof. Then open the panel above the mirror by first prying off the switch plate and removing the two 10mm bolts holding the mirror. Remove the sunroof motor gear, or rather just lower it out so it is disengaged with the cables. Now connect the switch and hit the auto open button as if you wanted to open the roof with single flick of the switch. Now hit the auto close button (same button of course, but the single touch method). The motor will advance and stop to where it thinks the roof should be, closed, which it is. Reassemble the gear into the slot, test it if all good, replace the mirror and panel.
Good luck.
Manfred.

Sunroof on 1990 maxima will not close


My '91 does the same thing. There is a thin metal wind deflector (about one inch wide with holes in it across the front edge of the sunroof opening. It should flip down to allow the glass to close all the way but sometimes it doesn't flip down all the way. Use something flat and thin like a credit card to hold it down while you close the roof. Works for me.
