Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous

Open Question

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the sunroof wont open. it is currently closed but when it push the button to close it, it seems that there is power and I can here it push forward. A while ago the battery went so I did a test. I turned on the interior lights and push the switch to close the sunroof and the lights dimmed, but when I tried to open the lights did nothing. I figure there's no power to open the roof. I was told by GM that it is the motor, but I am thinking switch.

SOURCE: sunroof stuck open...electronic switch clicks

The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.

To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.

3 bolts hold the motor up.

With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.

Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.

Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

Why does the sunroof pop up, but won't slide open?


Try looking at the owner's manual. You can download/read it at: http://www.vadengmpp.com/owners-manual/buick/2002-Buick-Rendezvous.pdf Maybe the kid broke it. You could try a Buick dealer to have the problem evaluated.

Sunroof wont open on 540i 2002


Often can be the fuse. The sunroof on my '98 opened fine then 30 mins later would not close. Found a 30amp fuse burned out. A 2 minute fix. Fuse box is located in glove box. If you hear a click sound the instant you push the open button, then you might be a more serious issue. Beyond my knowledge

2001 mitsubishi eclipse sunroof wont open but i can hear the motor


Mine did the same thing...took me 8 years to figure it out without having to pay for a repair at a shop. When it lifts the centimeter on its own, push up on glass with your hand with moderate pressure till it frees up, then just push the button towards the rear of the car and it should open the sunroof completely! How i now have to open mine but its awesome after 8 years and Ill work with that...

My sunroof won't close


Some sunroofs have a open switch like the drivers window. You push it and the window will open automaticly. The button on your sunroof could be jammed so even though you can close it as soon as you release it, it will auto open on it's own.

The driver side window will not come back up. the


I have this problem in my Buick Park Avenue. The two passenger side windows and the driver window work fine, but the rear driver side window won't close if it's opened. I disconnected the wire from inside the door to avoid further problems.

First try helping the window up, by gently pulling on it while you push the button. If this doesn't work and your vehicle is still under warranty, take it back to the place of purchase, the window motor will need to be serviced or replaced.

Sun roof not operating


I have built oem sunroofs for 20 years and if it was jerking to close you may have something in the track interfearing with the closing, but more than likely there is something broke. There is alot of plastic parts. No over-ride on an oem roof. The only obstacle in a motor replacement is make sure your lifter arms (the parts that the glass attaches to) are in the closed positon. This is called timing. You can help the motor along with a light pull or push to take some strain of the motor.

ASC Sunroof needs to be programmed


hold the vent button until the roof has "tilted" completely, then hold the open button until the roof has opened completely. the light that reads ASC should now be green and your sunroof should operate normally.
