Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

I just managed to make this work on an 05 limited using steps 7-12 without having to pull the fuse. it actually took repeating the initial steps of holding the vent button down 4 times instead of 2. the first few times it would go up to the max and then back down, so kept trying it till I noticed it did not come back down. Followed it up with cycling the sunroof from fully open to fully vented 7 times and it's flush now.

Thanks for the tip. I know the dealer would have charged a lot for this as its happened once before.

Vehicle: 2006 (DR) Ram Truck, 2005 - 2006 (LX) 300/Charger/Magnum, 2005 - 2006 (WK) Grand Cherokee, 2006 (XK) Commander
Concern: The rear of the sunroof glass is not flush with the roof of the vehicle. Possible windnoise or water leak.
Cause: Out of calibration
Resolution: First, UNCALIBRATE THE SUNROOF. Place the ignition switch in RUN position. Locate the sunroof fuse (Fuse 44 in the Power Distribution Center located in the trunk). While the sunroof is still in motion, have an assistant remove the sunroof fuse. Reinstall the sunroof fuse. Now, RECALIBRATE THE SUNROOF. Press and hold the sunroof vent switch until it stops at the full vent position. Verify sunroof operation by opening, closing, and venting the sunroof.
Details: If the above procedure is sucessful, have dealer reprogram/update the sunroof control module with new software.
2006 Jeep Commander sunroof repair follows this except that the 15 amp fuse is under the dash at position two. I wrapped some dental floss around the fuse, reinserted it, started the sunroof and pulled the fuse myself. Reset as above and it works!

I did the fuse pull on my brother-in-laws 2008 WK and it worked perfectly!
Thanks!

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

This is my 1st post here as I just got my 05 Limited, I thought the drain holes was clogged so cleaned them out then noticed the sunroof was not closing so I did a web search and came across these forms I did the tip that Diboblo posted and it now works great.

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 Grand Cherokee

This process worked great! However, attempted to perform this by pre-opening the sunroof first than pulling the fuse no good. This can be accomplished by a single person just pre-connect the (Mini) fuse puller ($4.00 any auto parts store) while laying on your back use a long stick push the open sunroof button, once it starts opening pull the fuse presto! Plug the fuse back in and press the vent button. Might have to hold it until fully open. Next, press the open button to reopen sunroof. Once fully opened press the close button and that is all it takes.

BTW -- The fuse panel for 95 GC Laredo is directly under driver side dash. Two philips screws hold a black panel in place under the dash suggest removing it verses trying to pull through the tiny fuse door as the fuse panel is angled.

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

Thank you so much for this!!! Pulling the fuse worked perfectly. It helped me a lot to use that little access door under the dash and fuse box area. I have been dealing with this problem for months now...I didn't know I had the problem until I went through a auto car wash a couple weeks after I bought the jeep. Water came poring in from everywhere and I had no where to go. Never will do that again! Had to pull all of the carpet up and use a fan to dry the carpet pad out. Went to a sunroof installer and the guy said there was no fix for these type of motors and that I would have to pay 500-600 dollars to have a new motor put in

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

I did the fuse reset and it fixed the issue "sunroof not fully closing".
you will find the fuse location for sunroof in user manual (05) page 345.
Thanks for sharing valuable information on the forum.

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

To revive an old thread, I have an issue of my sunroof not closing evenly. The driver side closes flush but the passenger side stops with a recess at the back corner. Tried the fuse trick and nothing. I checked the track and it looks clear as far as i can see. Currently Andrea has left a decent sized puddle in the foot well.

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
This worked for my 2008 WK. Thanks Bob!!
