    The switch activates the sunroof so I think its OK, it closes then reopens, are there any sensors I can check?

  • Allen Hodby Apr 01, 2011

    Does the sunroof need any lubrication or maintenance?

  • Allen Hodby Apr 01, 2011

    Is there a way to manually close the sunroof?

  • Allen Hodby Apr 02, 2011

    It's definitley not the switch! I've got a reset procedure from Renault Technical Support which has fixed the problem:
    1. With the ignition on, turn the switch to the fully open position.
    2. Press and hold the centre button for at least 4 seconds while the roof opens and closes.
    3. Press the centre button again within 5 seconds.

    There is also a way to manually close the roof, there is an allen screw on the motor which can be turned to close it.
    To access the motor the front overhead light cluster and its plastic case need to be prized out.

    The problem is fixed, it just needed resetting - procedure not in the handbook, My local garage got it from Renault Tech Support. Please close this request.

The end track switch (the one that cuts the power to the motor when the lid is fully closed) is defective: you need to remove the cover around the mechanism, locate the switch (follow the wires that lead to it) and see if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

The switch for the sunroof may be faulty causing it not to function properly. Try replacing the switch.

    I don't know of any way to manually close the sunroof without breaking the linkages but if the switch was shorting out it could be causing the sunroof to re-open. I'd try the switch first.

Nissan altima sunroof wont close all the way. It closes, but the rear of the window doesnt lift to create the seal at the back of the window. Any suggestions?


hi,
With the car OFF and sunroof OPEN inspect all around the sunroof's frame. If nothing found that might be in the way (rocks, twigs, etc.), turn on the car CLOSE the sunroof and see if you can push it UP while closing to 'help it'. If it works, I'd just leave it closed 'til you can take it to the dealer/shop to fix it.

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.

Espace sunroof blind wont close


I had this problem with mine, if you turn the switch fully to the left, then press and hold the middle button for 5-10 secsonds, you'll hear a beep which deactivates the sunroof and blind, wait a minute then press and hold the button again to re-activate and it should all then be sorted, it sometimes does a little dance with the blind while sorting itself out, mine has been fine ever since. Hope that helps.

Sun roof not closing on renault espace. when i move the switch to the closed position the sunroof closes then opens at the end


Had this problem with a laguna II 1.8 . Found the solution on the net as far as I can remember was to turn the switch all the way to the left and press the switch hold for 10 secs then turn the switch all the way to the right press and hold . the sunroof does a little dance and then closes. if it does not work try going right first

Sunroof on 2003 jetta tdi won't close. it has power, and operates, but will always reopen, by itself, when it is almost closed. ???


There may be something obstructing the path. Possibly the wind deflector? It's also possible that the sunroof knob is out of sync with the sunroof itself. Try putting your key in the drivers door lock, turning and holding that position while the sunroof closes. (not sure which way you have to turn) You can also close it manually with a hand crank (which is actually an allen wrench)

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

Sunroof will not close


If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.
