2000 suburban sunroof wont close

I recently opened my sunroof and it wont close. when i push the switch it does send a signal because the roof moves about a half inch then goes back. could it be the motor or is there a module that could need replaced or could it be as simple as a rock or something else lodged in the track. please help!

    I have the same problem. I opened my sunroof all the way and now it wont close. it makes a clicking sound when im driving as if its off track. how can I fix it

  • joe May 11, 2010

    i think most sunroofs have a sensing device to detect if someone's hand/finger is in the way. it could be something as easy as a piece of debris caught somewhere in the tract and the sensor is picking it up and preventing the roof from closing. inspect and see if you find anything.



    also, does this model have a manual method to close the roof if the motor fails (eg, wrench inserted in a hole and turn to close it)?

My sunroof did not close all the way, but would work back and forth. I postitioned the sunroof half way, disconnected the battery for 1 min then tried it again. The system that keeps track of where the sunroof was positioned got reset and it now works great.

Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• One tilting glass sunroof panel--For sunroof vent functions
• Three sliding glass sunroof panels, which allow the sunroof to open in sections
• Power sunshade panel--An adaptable panel which is rolled out or rolled in and stored by the sunshade motor/actuator in order to cover or uncover the sunroof glass panels
• Power sunroof switch--A rotary style switch controlling sunroof switch signal inputs to the sunroof motor/actuator
• Power sunshade switch--A momentary press style switch controlling sunshade switch signal inputs to the sunshade motor/actuator
• Power sunroof motor/actuator--Comprised of both the sunroof motor/actuator and the sunroof electronic control module, it is sometimes referred to as the sunroof control module/motor assembly.
• Power sunshade motor/actuator--Comprised of both the sunshade motor/actuator and the sunshade electronic control module, it is sometimes referred to as the sunroof slave module.
Sunroof Motor/Actuator and Sunroof Switch
The sunroof motor/actuator assembly is located at the rear of the passenger compartment, above the rear view window, between the headliner and the roof structure. The sunroof motor/actuator assembly also contains the sunroof electronic control module and the two components are serviced together as a unit.
Battery positive voltage is supplied to the motor/actuator at all times through the 25-amp LAMELLA ROOF fuse located in the rear fuse block. Whenever the ignition is turned to RUN or ACCESSORY, or when the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active, the motor/actuator is also supplied battery positive voltage through the accessory voltage circuit and the 10-amp ROOF/HEAT SEAT fuse which is located in the body control module (BCM). The sunroof motor/actuator is grounded through splice S403 to body ground G302.
The sunroof motor/actuator supplies voltage to the sunroof switch through three internal resistors and three hard wire circuits. The 3 hard wire circuits are:
• Sunroof switch data 1 signal circuit
• Sunroof switch data 2 signal circuit
• Sunroof switch data 3 signal circuit
The sunroof switch, which is also grounded to G302, is a rotary style switch. When the switch control lever is turned in a rotational direction, the appropriate switch contacts and signal circuits for the selected mode are simultaneously opened and/or closed to ground in order to provide the appropriate combination of voltage signals to the sunroof motor/actuator. The sunroof motor/actuator interprets the signals, and then applies battery positive voltage and ground to the appropriate circuits of the integral power sunroof motor in order to move the sunroof glass panels. At the same time, the sunroof motor/actuator sends a serial data message, via the keyword 2000 serial data circuit, to the sunshade motor/actuator to open the sunshade panel in conjunction with the sunroof glass. As the sunroof glass panels slide rearward to the open position, the sunshade motor/actuator simultaneously rolls in the adaptable sunshade panel.
The sunroof switch is mounted in a bezel which is located above the rearview mirror.


Circuit/System Description
The sunroof system is controlled by the sunroof switch and the sunroof control module/motor assembly, which is also known as the motor/actuator assembly.
The sunroof control module is supplied battery positive voltage at all times through the 15A SUNROOF fuse located in the rear fuse block. Whenever the ignition is turned to RUN or ACCESSORY, or when the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active, the module is also supplied voltage through the accessory voltage circuit and the 10-amp ROOF/HEAT SEAT fuse located in the body control module (BCM). The sunroof control module is grounded through the ground circuit at G302.
The sunroof control module supplies voltage to the contacts of the sunroof switch through the sunroof switch close signal circuit and the sunroof switch open signal circuit. The sunroof control module also supplies ground to the switch contacts through the sunroof switch low reference circuit. When the switch is operated, the contacts and signal circuit for the selected mode are closed to ground, the voltage is pulled low in the module, and the appropriate signal is recognized by the control module. The control module then internally applies battery positive voltage and ground to the appropriate circuits of the reversible power sunroof motor in order to move the sunroof glass panel to the open, close, or vent


Do you know how to do electrical testing ?
Circuit/System Testing
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the sunroof control module.
Ignition OFF, test for less than 1.0 ohm of resistance between the ground circuit terminal 1 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 3 and ground.
? If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.
Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 6 and ground.
? If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.
Connect the harness connector at the sunroof control module.
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the sunroof switch.
Ignition OFF, test for less than 1.0 ohm of resistance between the low reference circuit terminal B and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the low reference circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the sunroof control module.
Ignition ON, test for B+ between the signal circuit terminal C and ground.
? If not the specified value, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the sunroof control module.
Test for B+ between the signal circuit terminal A and ground.
? If not the specified value, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the sunroof control module.
If all circuits test normal, test or replace the sunroof switch.

2002 Jaguar XType Sun-roof one-touch operations reset


I had this issue and found the solution around, worth sharing and it takes 30 seconds: <br /> <span> <li>Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.</i></li> <li>Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.</li></span>

Here's a description the sun roof
Power Sunroof System Components
The power sunroof system consists of the following components:
• Sunroof module
• Sunroof switch
• Sunroof motor, with 2 hall effect sensors and limit switch
• Sunroof window
• Sunroof sunshade panel
• Power supply for the sunroof module: RAP 25 A
• Ground G402

Override
The override function is used when needing to force a closing of the sunroof window. To override the system:
Turn ignition to ON.
Rotate the sunroof switch to the close position.
Press upward.
The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. As long as the sunroof module sees this input, it will continue to slide the sunroof window to close, regardless of the other sunroof switch data circuits inputs.

My sunroof is stuck open its acting like it wants to close but goes back


If you have a 740 with an electric sunroof, when the roof is in the fully closed position you should be able to push the closed switch again and have the rear of the roof pop up to the 'vent' position. If you have a manual roof, after it reaches the closed position you feel a bit of resistance; you then continue moving the crank in the closed direction and the rear of the roof should pop up to the 'vent' position.
If your roof does not move at all, you must NOT pry up the rear edge manually as there are cast tracks at the rear of the panel that hold it in place and you will break, bend, or damage the tracks, roof or the panel.
Most likely it is out of alignment and too tight for the minimal leverage applied by the motor to move it, as well as being thoroughly gunked up. The secret to lack of motion is most likely binding in the up and down motion of the panel. If manual, try moving the crank back and forth, bearing in mind that the first motion the roof makes is that up and down motion at the rear of the panel. If there is resistance to the crank motion immediately, there is 'likely' to not be any damage in the screw mechanism, just binding of the panel in the roof.
If nothing moves as you move the crank towards 'vent', push up gently through that small rectangular opening inside the headliner on the rear of the panel to help it along, by just pushing it free of the roof. The tracks at the rear of the panel move the panel up and down, either to pull it down before retracting or to pop the rear of the panel up for the 'vent' position, and if they are damaged or too gunked up, they will resist opening. The device that is connected to the motor/crank via screw cables slides back and forth in these tracks, raising and lowering the panel, which will not be possible unless you can move the crank/motor. Try to get it high enough to be able to peer inside the roof from the outside to unhook the headliner clips - once you get those, all is revealed and you will be able to see why your roof is not functioning properly.

Sunroof was opened to far now it will not close, just a clicking sound trying to close.


Could have possibly came off track, you may try having someone from outside the vehicle try gently pushing the sunroof toward the close position as someone in the vehicle presses the close button. Hopefully with some luck you should be able to get the roof back on track to close.

My2001 Mitsubishi Diamante sunroof wont close i


Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.
