Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima
Got this really strange situation. What first started was my front windows would on occasion automatically go down on their own, as if I held the key fob unlock button for a few seconds which auto lowers the windows by design. I found a solution on line that had me use the motor reset switches found behind interior door panels and that seemed to reset the window situation for the most part. Now my sunroof is acting fluky.
This car has 2 buttons for the sunroof - one (a sliding switch) is dedicated to straight opening/closing the roof and the other (a rocker style) is dedicated to only tilting open/close the rear of the roof. If I try to use the sliding switch, the roof will not open. But if I use the rocker button (designed to only open the rear of the window), it starts to open the roof - a little at a time. If I keep hitting this button, eventually the roof will open all the way - and even close.
Anyone ever come across this? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.

It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.

Probably a circuit breaker tripping and then resets itself in time.Could be a loose wire or bad spot in motor. Try taking a can of silicone spray & spray the felt channels where window rides, and make sure you spray lots at lower part so it can run down in the channel below. Work window up & down a few times to spread it around and see if that doesn't help as well. May need to clean window after but small price to pay for a fix.
