Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

There is an alternate calibration method, albeit similar, for those who try the aforementioned and it doesn't work


This is from a TSB from 2005. Steps 1 throug 6 concern reprogramming the sunroof module with Starscan (deleted). You can do steps 7 through 12 in your driveway right now.

7. Place the ignition switch in RUN position.

8. Close all of the doors.

9. Press and release the vent switch (sunroof should move to vent position).

10. Once the sunroof has stopped motion at the vent position, press and hold the vent switch
for at least 5 seconds to recalibrate the sunroof position.

11. If the sunroof did not reach the full vent open position, press and hold the vent switch until
the full-vent-open position is reached then release the vent switch, then press and hold the
vent switch for at least 5 seconds to recalibrate the sunroof position.

12. Cycle the sunroof from the full-vent-open position to the full-slide-open position and back to
the full-vent-open position at least 7 complete times. The sunroof is now in customer mode
with the obstacle detection thresholds updated.

Hope this helps...
Bob

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

It didn't work on the wife's RT Magnum, so I tried it after a battery disconnect and it worked the first time

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

My '05 had this issue, I was finally able to pull that stupid fuse while in motion and it worked on the first try. The hard part was getting to the fuse, had to have the wife get her little hands in there to get it.
I did find that it only worked while in motion, but did not work if the roof was just half open.

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

This worked perfectly for me! It is important to note, you DO have to open and close it 7 times! Less will not do the trick LOL! Thanks so much!

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

Mine wasn't seating completely in the rear when closed. The trick w/out pulling the fuse worked for mine. Thanks

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

unfortunately, the 7-12 step didnt work for me... i tried to pull the fuse which is believe on my 06 overland, it is located under the steering column... fuse #2 but it seems almost impossible to do it by hand and its a tight spot too

Go through the steps without pulling the fuse?

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

Holy crap!!!

This worked perfectly. I followed the instructions from Diboblo and it worked. I have been dealing with this for the past year and a half and this is all I had to do. I took the Jeep into the dealer a little over a year ago and they said that the frame of the sunroof was bent and it wouldn't close correctly. It was going to be $800 repair. I said I would just deal with it and have been since then. It has gradually gotten worse though over the last 2 months to the point that when it rains, it is nearly impossible to drive without water pouring out of the drain tubes through the A pillars.

I am so excited to finally have this taken care of and it cost absolutely nothing. I just wish I would have found this thread sooner. What a huge relief.

Thanks

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

I've used that method on several LX's and it's worked every time

Glad it worked for you
