Sunroof Problem

So I today when I tried to open my sunroof it wouldn't open!! its like I'm not even pushing the button. So after work I went out and tried it again and it worked all the way home. open, close, all that great stuff. But it only works sometimes. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Or have had a similar problem. confused

First, let's get the basics out of the way (not trying to be a dick):

1) Was the key in the "ON" position at least?
2) Are you sure you were pressing the "OPEN" button on the roof? (I've mistakenly hit the close button thinking I was doing the right thing)
3) Is there a blown fuse? (Granted, if it's working occassionaly, then the fuse must be in tact, but it could be on it's way out)

If all these are in the positive, then you probably have a short. From there, I don't know how to help you other than to send you to someone who knows automotive electronics. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!!

Try to get it full open, then clean the rails with a dry cloth, then spray just a little bit of wd40 happywink

Alright thanks for the tips. I'll try cleaning it and if it still doesn't work, I'll figure out who to take it to

sunroofs are awesome, but rather expensive to get a piece cut out of your car.

What I need to get is a silver gt right? Then I can try and be fast...right?

It could be a relay is failing. I had this problem on the Saturn I owned. It turned out it was a relay. Find out if there is a relay used in the circuit to power the sunroof, and see if you can replace it, or if a shop is needed.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
