Where is the sensor that you tape was blocking? Seems like it got confused. Replace the glass once the lift arms are moving properly. If your sunroof suddenly becomes stuck open, and it's rainy or cold outside, you've got a major problem. First, the motor may be failing. I think the same thing is happening on my mk6, as the two times it's happened so far have been when the car was sitting in the open sun.
Close the sunroof with your key. If Im driving down the road, it closes no problem. Key on, put the knob one click towards the slide motion for 20 seconds, then back to closed. Anyone know whats up or what else I can try? Keyed on again and it opened, closed and vented like normal. Before your sunroof malfunctioned, did you notice it getting more sluggish over time? Hi all, I just had this problem earlier today, the shade was stuck in between the sunroof and the inside roof of the car.
Has anyone else noticed this problem? There are several different versions of sunroofs; most open and close automatically with the touch of a button. If there is no power to the motor, the sunroof will remain in the open position. They added a little oil to the sunroof's track but i doubt this addresses the issue bc although my sunroof now opens and closes again, i hear a cracking sound ever time. Not sure what would happen, maybe striped gears? It would never completely close. When the sunroof is closed this way the pinch protection is not enabled. I had the same problem when I was detailing my car.
I already checked the fuse and know it was blown. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak. Turn and push on the screwdriver to work the motor manually. I have had it in 2 times, and it still has the problem. I have had a few instances where the sunroof failed to close, but would close and then open up again, but I could get it to close, but popped up in the rear. It had always slowed down when it hit the wind screen, but one day it just decided that wind screen was too much and it would open back up. I do have the comfort feature enabled and used it a few times when it looked like rain.
Guess it's going back to the dealer. For the record, I had to unclip the middle part of the panel in the headlining and underneath was a silver allen bolt. If you hold it down and release right before it pinches your fingers it will close and I haven't had an issue since. You have to pop off the piece that looks like it has two speaker grills on it best way to describe it. Mar 07, 2010 My Audi A4 has a manual crank spot under a flip cover just in front of the roof on the ceiling.
The main connector looked quite corroded. The motor clicks on the two different settings but thats it. Took my car to the dealership and they said nothing was wrong. The two main causes of a stuck sunroof are a lack of power and debris stuck in the sunroof's tracks. If you open the sunroof all the way past the stop, then sunshade is basically completely inside the roof. It only happened after not driving the car for 2 days and once the weather got cold.
At least it's no an emergency trip to the dealer now. Shortly after I enabled the auto close, it works. Navin, any news on ur end? Does it just need some kind of lubrication, or is there a problem with the circuit? Essentially I open the sunroof, not tilt. This is where I have discovered that they get confused. Maybe there is debris or something that is triggering the sensor? This fixes the problem on the A4 and your Golf likely has a similar design. I tryed forcing my hand and trying to pull the visor it wont budge. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out.
So I know it leave the switch in the wrong position. Once me and the wife figured that out, never had another problem again. I wonder, though, because it seems that the sunshade is pushed in even if you open it by hand, since when the sunroof is opened, the handle part gets shoved under the roof. I had the exact same problem yesterday. My sunroof has always opened and closed slightly slower then it should, and it sounds like the motor is struggling. Removed it and all was well. I attribute all this to the superior German electrical technology we've all grown to love.
