At the four corners of the Pathfinder sunroof there are the drains to collect the water. If the drains are clogged, or hoses camaged or disconnected you get a leak (common failure).

Water leaking at the passenger kick panel

If your vehicle has a sunroof, then check the sunroof drainage holes for blockage. Use an airline to blow down them and clear them of any debris.

Factory reset

The problem is that your sunroof is operated by a PCB which contains computerized programmed IC.  This problem is not with battery.  You might have been operating your sunroof when your battery was down.  The programming of IC has been disturbed.  Take that PCB to the service centre.

Always operate your power windows/side mirror/ sunroofs when your car is start because these power stuffs have high rated motors.

When the car is start it's load is on genrator/dinamo therefore it does n't have any effect on battery.

mail me, if you would like to ask any thing else.
