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.

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

SOURCE: Sunroof air gap and water leak
What you may try to do is place some weatherstrip around which you can find in HOME DEPOT...i can tell you thats the cheapest way to fix your problem.

IT MAY HAVE GOTTEN STUCK TO THE RUBBER INSULATION AND DRAWN TOO MUCH AMPERAGE RESULTING IN A BLOWN FUSE. TWO MOST COMMON LOCATIONS FOR THE FUSES ARE UNDER THE HOOD IN A RECTANGULAR SHAPED BLACK BOX. THE OTHER IS UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL OR ON THE LEFT PART OF THE DASH WHERE THE DRIVERS' DOOR HINGE IS. HOPE THIS HELPS OUT. LET ME KNOW PLEASE. BEST OF LUCK.

Repair manual I can help with. Don't have access to an owners manual at present.
Go to Autozone.com
Go up to the top right, and click on Become A Member.
Membership is almost instantaneous, and you won't receive garbage email, or have your information given out.
After you are logged in, go up to the top left, and click on Manage My Vehicles.
It's pretty self-explanatory from there. (You choose, Year, Make, Model, Engine)
Then you will be on the -> Edit Vehicle Information page. (Home>My Zone>Manage My Vehicles>Edit Vehicle Information)
Go to the left column, scroll down with your eyes to -> Vehicle Repair Guides, and click on it.
On the next page are the different categories.
Feel free to rate my solution. Thanks.
