Wait around 2 minutes and pour some water on the rain sensor mounted on the glass behind the rear vision mirror and after a short delay the windows and sunroof will close. It just looks to me like something that can cause a problem. I tried to open the sunroof today on highway at speed around 70mph and sunroof is working perfectly. Maybe that triggers the pinch prevention. There's an area just above the drain area which is not weather sealed German engineering? Here is a picture of what the sunroof drains look like on the inside mk5 shown.
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. In earlier years, you could push up on the dial to reset the sunroof, but that doesn't seem to be an option anymore. That was a real 'duuuh' moment when I realized it could do that. I pulled the rear roof panel off and peered under the headliner in back behind the hatch. I've started and stopped the motor, let it sit for a while, and driven around town but it still doesn't work. Know a lot about mechanics and modding? Is there a trick to the button reset? Checking just involves pouring a cup of water down the drain to flush out any buildup that could block it. If the line gets dislodged or you find water leaking into the interior, repair it using the steps below.
Does anybody has the same problem or it is just me? Worked perfectly when I tested it in the spring. If the car is fitted with an alarm and the interior sensors these will need to be disabled by pressing the button on the B pillar before locking the car as operation of the sunroof and windows may activate the alarm. Press the switch forward D first detent, press the switch again C D , the sliding sunshade must be opened and closed manually, if your power sunroof will not close properly, do not try to close it yourself, doing so can cause serious. If you park under a tree or leave the sunroof open it gives a greater chance for clogging due to debris. Always close the sunroof before leaving the vehicle or if it begins raining, open or tilted, rain could enter the vehicle interior and cause extensive damage electrical, remove leaves and other objects from the sunroof guiderails regularly either by hand using, if the power sunroof malfunctions, pinch protection may not function properly.
Here's the fault code I get: Address 4F: Central Electr. In the mk3 passat the drain outputs are in the fender well and not visible. The bad news is that after reconnecting the battery, I can't get the sunroof to close. The way I fixed it was by reaching up and pressing down on the rails while it was closing. Warning - if you do poke a hole into the line or it's already broken, feed a new line into the old line as pictured below instead of taking the interior apart. That's only on the sedan. If they do I will update this post.
Naturally it was in this position when I reconnected the battery. Continue holding the button for ten seconds after it is full open. Or is my fast supposed to drive with sunroof and all window open just like in the commercial? This module controls functions such as windows and keyless entry. There are no directions on how to manually close the roof. Well, I figured out that the sunshade is being pushed all the way back into the roof when the sunroof is opened. And expensive damage that will not be covered by any Volkswagen Limited Warranty, knowledge and tools are required to close the power sunroof if it will not close on its own, prevent damage to the sunroof, have an authorized Volkswagen dealer an authorized Volkswagen, service Facility help you close and repair power sunroof. The comfort position provides sufficient ventilation without loud wind noise, power sunroof — convenience closing feature, the convenience closing feature lets you close the power sunroof follows, remove the cover cap from the concealed lock cylinder on the driver door if necessary.
This isn't a huge issue, just something annoying that shouldn't happen on a brand new car. The sunshade that covers the sunroof glass will not remain in the closed position while driving. The buttons on the control stalk no longer work with this coding, although I don't really mind. The wiring harness for the airbag was the single ignitor type. Bend them more vertical so they can contact the switch knob more easily, and try it out. It will move as much as 1. It happens with any vehicle, but more prominently with hatch backs.
There are 4 drains at the sunroof, one at each corner. This will also help clean out any small particles. I don't recommend compressed air because it might blow loose the line. When I go to close it, it's staying in the roof. There's an area just above the drain area which is not weather sealed German engineering? The sunroof motor is there but there's no way to really reach it without taking the whole headliner off which I wasn't about to attempt. Finally, I reread the manual and discovered a feature the salesman never showed me when I bought the car.
Hi guys, I've owned a candy white 2008 gti for one week now and everything is great except the sunroof. Are you putting it in the closed position and it closes almost all the way and then forces itself back open? The result is great and it wasn't as hard to do as I thought it would be. It would close to about 1 inch away from all the way then bounce back. If it's okay, pour a lot of water in there to flush any particles out. The sunroof switch data 6 circuit, or override circuit, will become grounded at the sunroof module. Close the sunroof with your key.
Mk4 Passat 1998-2005 also have drains under the windshield area. I left it in the tilt position while I was working on the car. The New Beetle's drains are by the front-lower windshield trim corners. I'm guessing it happened because its not been opened since last summer and something ended up on the runners. When sunroof motor current draw goes high the module will reverse the motor because it thinks it has hit something. Traced the leak to the front left sunroof drain and here's what I learned.
The star button mutes the radio and the phone button obviously does nothing since I don't have a bluetooth kit installed. A weedwacker line is pictured sticking in one of the drains. Yeah, you're going to get some buffeting type noise with a sunroof slid open but none when it is flipped up. I used part 1K0 971 584 C. Water comes out in surges as air tries to get in.
