    sunroof opens 2in at a time

    My sunroof on my 2001 infinity QX4 opens 2 inches at a time, closes the same way....why? is it a sensor that needs cleaning/repalcement??

  • cdyoung May 08, 2009

    My sunroof opens and closes a few inches at a time also but with a twist, the left switch when held for a second should open the roof on its own and close it as well while the rocker switch on the right raises it and closes it. Well now either switch now will raise and open and close it but a few inches at a time. Why is this happening??? 2001 qx4

Good news I found out from a forum and it worked for me. Here it is

: 2002 pathfinder sunroof acts up after replacing battery (CKirbyjr) 5:30 PM 5/9/2008 Sunroof on Infinity QX4 (2001) - qt.gif reply.gif

Welcome to NICO -- The same thing happens whenever I disconnect my battery.
Try opening the sunroof all the way (2 inches at a time) and then close it (again two inches at a time). Turn the vehicle off and on again. Sunroof should operate normally.
I'm not sure if the last step is required but I've always done it anyway. It's worked all three times I've had my battery disconnected.

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.

I have a sunroof that only works by holding the button down not automatic any more on a 2002 x type jag


That happens when you turn off the key switch, before the sunroof closes or opens at full, try this, with the key power switch in on, run manually full to open and return to close, then, exactly when the sunroof is fully closed, turn off at the same time the key switch, maybe you need to try more than once, must be exactly at the same time. good luck

The windows and sun roof doesnt work i think i have a blown fuse


The fuse and relay box on the E30 and E36 models is located in the engine compartment. The E36 models also has relay boxes located under the left side of the dashboard.

Circuit Breakers
Resetting & Replacement

Circuit breakers are located inside the fuse panel. They are automatically reset when the problem corrects itself, is repaired, or the circuit cools down to allow operation again.

One of the less known about fuses that can cause all this to go out is the fuseable link. It is in a black plastic box near the battery. It is an appx 60A thin metal strip fuse. Check the website link to the right for more info.

Also, I suggest check your Fuse Diagram in the BMW 525i Owners Manual here.

Power Sunroof
Emergency Closure Operation

The sunroof is equipped with an emergency closure feature should the sunroof motor fail or the vehicle has lost electrical power. To close the sunroof under these conditions:
  1. Remove the front headliner trim panel.
  2. Using the 6mm hex key that is included with the tool kit, insert the key into the hex socket and turn the socket to close the sunroof.

  1. Open the sunroof lid 2-4 inches (5-10cm).
  2. Unclip the roof liner frame and push back into the opening.
  3. Close the sunroof lid and loosen the screws on each end of the gates.
  4. Pull in the retainers, remove the center screws and lift off the lid.
  5. Remove the cover over the motor and gearbox. Close the sunroof lid, if not already closed.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the 3 mounting screws. Remove the motor and gearbox.
  7. Push the cables back evenly on both sides. Remove the rail covers and pull the cables out of the guides.
  8. Place the cable in the center position of the gate and press off.
To install:
  1. Install the cables to the gate. The cable are marked with the proper side of installation. Do not lubricate fabric covered cables.
  2. Pull the cables through guides and align the cables. Insert a hex key through the gate and cable at the 0 position.
  3. Install the motor and gearbox. The motor and gearbox must be synchronized with the hole in the drivegear aligned between the centers of the 2 gears. Torque the bolts to 2.0 ft. lbs. (2.8 Nm).
  4. Install the sunroof lid. Use new screws and torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  5. Adjust the sunroof lid. Pull the roof liner frame into position and clip into place.

E36 Models
  1. Close the sunroof fully. With a quick actuation of the sunroof opening button, open the sunroof so the back edge of the lid depresses 0.08-0.12 inches (2-3mm).
  2. Slowly push the roof liner panel back into the roof. Do not force or use a quick motion or damage could occur.
  3. Remove the mounting screws and pull the lid off at the rear side. Do not operate the sunroof with the panel removed.
To install:
  1. Install the lid and check that the hooks and levers align. Install the screws with threadlocker or use new micro-encapsulated screws. Torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  2. Adjust the sunroof lid. Lower the rear of the lid by operating the motor. Pull the liner forward and clip into place.

Good luck.

Sunroof only opens 2 inches at a time


Hi , you may have to reset the anti trap mechanism for the sunroof, to do this if you press and hold the sunroof swich it should carry out a full anti trap cycle, the switch will need to be pressed for approx 15 seconds before any thing happends and keep it press throughout the whole process, regards mark

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


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.

I am having problems with my maximas sunroof


Your motor for the sunroof is out of time. needs to re retimed. There is a procedure to retime it, but I don't remember exactly as to how its done. Would need to look into it as to how EXACTLY its done. I know that the motor needs to be completely taken off the sunroof track and that you need to push the buttons in certian sequence to retime it and I don't have the sequence in my head, but thats the problem. The motor is out of time.
