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.

My daughter just bought a 2000 pontiac grand am and it gets water in the back drivers side when it rains hard. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Is the car equipped with a sunroof. If so, I suspect sunroof drain is plugged up (leaves etc..) You need to blow compressed air through drains to unplug (if so equipped) You can also take it to a self serve car wash and spray hi pressured soapy water at suspect area, soap will leave a trail.

Saturn SL1 moon roof inop


The first thing you want to check is the fuses for the sunroof. Look very closely as there could be hairline fractures. If the fuses are good, you want to test the sunroof motor for power and ground. You can find testing meters here. The most likely culprit is the Sunroof Motor. I have seen this time and time again with my experience with Saturn.

Power windows do not go down also interior lights dont work sunroof inop


This sounds like you have a blown fuse/fuses. Find and remove the cover of the fuse box and the panel will tell you the location of the fuses. Simply check them and replace the bad ones. If this is not the issue, then you may just have an electrical issue and those are never fun, not to mention quite costly. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


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.

Check the underhood relays. Wiggle each one and see what happens. Check all the fuses that pertain to these operations also.

ALL THE WINDOWS AND SUNROOF WERE OPEN ON MY '03 BMW 325xi


Make sure nobody plays with the car key after you lock it because if anybody push the unlocking button on your key remote it will unlock the car and if they push and hold it long enough it will open the windows and sunroof

SUNROOF STUCK IN OPEN POSITION


Control Module might have issues.
Remove headliner (quite a job)
Unplug the the power leads to the sunroff motor
Use spare wires to use power from the overhead dome light to the power conections on the motor to get it to move a bit.
If it does not move, reverse the wires. If it sill does not move, then the Sunroof Motor is bad.
Otherwise, Re-connect the power leads to the motor and re-try the sunroof switch to get the roof closed..

Most likely the sunroof control module has a bad diode.
