There is no easy way to manually close the sunroof. Questions:
- Is the sunroof moving slightly then jamming/stopping? Or is it 100% stuck.
- Did you recently open it? I.e. was the system operating OK recently?
- What's the weather like in Knoxville?
Sounds good. thank you for the advise. Do you push the glass?Mine did the same thing once. Had a buddy grab it while I was pushing the close button. He pulled like crazy and it closed. Took some effort but it was starting to rain so we didn’t really care.
Disclaimer: Do this at your own peril. Mine still works fine but can’t promise yours will do the same.
Will do. Thank you very much for your quick response. @Ayune @neckbone
Did you try to re-initialize it?
-Depress sunroof switch and operate sunroof to the max. tilt position-
-Release sunroof switch-
-Depress and hold sunroof switch again-
-After 10 sec. the sunroof will start automatic operation and complete one cycle, (tilt downward, slide open, slide close, and tilt upward) while sunroof switch is depressed-
-DO NOT release sunroof switch until sunroof stops-
-Check that sunroof stops in correct position.
Hope that helps.
I was not able to get the re-initialization sequence to work- but I used my other working sunroof as a reference and here is what you do to assure proper sunroof close calibration- take the motor off so the sunroof will slide free; depress the open switch on the motor while it is unmounted from the cables, it will stop at its detent "open position. Then use your hand to slide the sunroof back so it is exactly 2 7/8" from the front edge of the steel roof to the front edge of the rubber weatherstrip on front of the sunroof. Re-install the motor with them both in this position, tighten down the motor. Now, when you push the close button, the sunroof should come to rest exactly where it should- with the aft side of the glass flush with the top of the roof.
Hope this helps!
I thought there was a manual crank of some kind under the forward map light/homelink panel, no? That’s where it was in my Volvos and I thought I read in the owners manual the 100 has it too.
