Sun roof problems

Recently the sunroof in my SVT has been acting weird. If i open it, and then close it after my drive, the sunroof closes normally until it is just about closed, and then automatically starts opening again. This happens about 3 times in a row, and then i have to hold the button down for it to close fully. the same goes for if i want it to just raise a little by pushing the forward button, it will come down and go right back up, and it will do this also 3 times. I have no idea what is causing this



any ideas?

You can "reset" the motor to fix this. I'm not sure of the procedure, your dealer can do it in a few minutes

Damn sunroof

Same thing with my sunroof, If it is cracked open in the back it always takes three tries until it stays shut. I have just been putting up with it though, don't know how to fix it myself. Guess its just another focus thing.

look in the index of the manual for sunroof. theres a section in there of a procedure you have to go through to reset the motors boudaries and this will fix it. no need to pay anyone to look at it

theres a little block attached to the shade that the sunroof catches on the way back. that has probably just came off. finding it in the roof might be a problem though
