    sunroof stuck open, track on driver side won't move forward. can move glass by hand but track doesn't move.

  • mdunnigan52 Jan 13, 2009

    i have the same problem.can only push the glass forward and it willn't retrack down in the freelander

  • huskermark Feb 20, 2009

    On ours, the piece that keeps the sunroof elevated on the driver's side won't collapse down. Also tracks as if the passenger side is the only side pulling. If I tap the close button, manually move the piece, tap the button, manually move the piece, repeat... it finally closes almost completely, but not quite.

I had same problem but under the interior light there is a manuel nut to shut the sun roof by hand

    Yes i agree, pop out internal light lens - Undo 2 x 8mm nuts and remove complete light assembly - Access to motor now, my "V" plated freelander has a large flat headed screwdriver connector in the pump - Insert large bladed screwdriver into slot and turn (should turn easy if motor hasn't seized from water ingress)

  • pamedwards12 Jun 02, 2011

    YES! The interior light trick works. Husband and I just closed the sunroof on our 2002 Freelander for the last time. I have put a red tape X on the button. Along with the red tape X on the passenger rear window button and the big rear window button. Sigh.

Basically the sun roof has seized due to lack of use. The lubricant used by LR has congealed. In my case, I covered all the inside of the vehicle in protective cloth, opened the sunroof, and then used WD40 with the tube applicator to spray the mechanism. There are two areas here. The guides which the sunroof slides on and the spiral mechanism which rotates from the motor. I had to continually work the the spray into the spiral drive on both sides and then close and open the roof with manual assistance. This I had to do a number of times, eventually it worked ok. However, this year I have noticed it has slowed again. LR can supply a light oil for this but my agent did not know what it was.
Finally, if it really does not work, then when the roof is closed, remove the fuse for it so that it cannot be opened accidentally and the car left insecure.

2001 cadillac deville sunroof open and want close


Check the RAP fuse in the rear fuse box , this fuse powers the sunroof control module ! Fuse Block - Rear , Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat .
The sunroof module contains the logic for the opening and the closing of the sunroof. The sunroof motor assembly contains the reversible DC drive motor, the gear train, and the limit switch.
The sunroof module determines the sunroof motor direction based on inputs received from the overhead console sunroof switches. When the ignition switch is in the ON position or when retained accessory power (RAP) is active, voltage is applied to the sunroof module via the RAP relay. For a description and operation of the RAP system, refer to Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Description and Operation in Retained Accessory Power. The sunroof module controls the sunroof motor direction by changing the polarity of the applied voltage. The sunroof module remembers the sunroof position whenever the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position. The limit switch is used as an input to the sunroof module to indicate that the glass is fully closed, or in the comfort stop positions. The limit switch is grounded when the sunroof glass is in the fully closed or comfort stop positions, otherwise it is open.
The SLIDE CLOSE mode is initiated by moving and holding the sunroof slide switch (ROOF) forward. This applies a ground provided from the sunroof limit switch low reference circuit to the sunroof switch close vent signal input of the sunroof module. The sunroof module controls voltage to the control circuits of the sunroof motor. The sunroof motor will run until the limit switch contacts are closed. The closing of the limit switch will apply the sunroof limit switch low reference circuit to the sunroof limit switch soft stop signal circuit to the sunroof module, indicating the flush closed position has been reached. As the sunroof is approaching the close position the sunroof glass will force the wind deflector downward.
You need to have a factory scan tool hooked up an have it checked for DTC'S in the sunroof control module ! a code reader will not do this , a code reader will only check the engine codes for OBD 2 .
Important: The following must be completed before using the symptom tables.
  1. Perform Diagnostic System Check - Power Sunroof in order to verify that all of the following are true:
  2. ?€¢
    No DTCs are set.


    ?€¢
    The control modules can communicate via the serial data link.

  3. Review the system operation in order to familiarize yourself with the system functions. Refer to Sunroof Description and Operation
your better off taking to the dealer !

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.
