I assume this method works for a MY13 WK2 (single pane sunroof)?

I tried the above method, no good and I cannot locate the appropriate fuse to try the other method. Any ideas? This is really annoying just before I'm setting off on a road trip this weekend...

I would hazard a guess that if you post in the correct forum, you may get a correct answer. Chances are people that actually own a vehicle like yours have had more experience with the sunroof than people that do not. Not sure if you had posted there already, but if not that's probably a good idea.

Here is a start (it's for the pano roof, but may work):

OK, OK, that's what I get for using the search function with the wrong keywords.

Re: sunroof not fully closing '05 CG

Well after having my entire sunroof module replaced back in June of this year, I find my A-pillar is leaking again. My original issue was resolved with the new module because the track arms were broken on one side so it could not lift the front (closest to engine) high enough to seal, so water could easily pour in.

Spent all of Thursday afternoon with a wet vac drying out the carpet and taking down the front portion of the headliner to confirm the drain tubes were properly attached. I never noticed the rear driverside grab bar was not re-attached fully after the dealer replaced my entire sunroof module so I wasn't fully confident the drain tubes were reconnected either.

The front tubes were connected so I shot some water down each side and watched the flood come out from underneath my jeep where it should be, so those drains are fine. I tried pulling the fuse to force the new sunroof to recalibrate and I still don't think it is closing tightly.

Comparing the flushness to of the front of the glass to the rear of the glass, the rear seems to sit ever so slightly proud of the roof itself. Testing this I closed everything up and shot water right at the rear seam and from inside with the sunshade pushed back, I could feel water leaking in.

So, is there a way to fine tune the calibration manually? I recall reading there were some screws you could adjust on the sunroof glass but I don't see where those screws are. Also, maybe I didn't take enough of my headliner down, but I did not see the rear drain tube (or tubes?). Water getting in behind the sunroof now is the only explanation I can think of as to why I get water dripping out of either side A-pillar (Depending on the angle I parked the jeep) AND out of the overhead command console. Before with the damaged sunroof tracks, water just came out of the A-pillars.

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
@Diboblo @KidFresh5.7 I must be the only one that can't get this recalibration to work. My sunroof use to work properly and then one day last year, same thing, it would not close flush. I tried manually recalibrating it, even pulling the fuse, but I can't get it to work. First I put it in the full-vent-open position, hold the Vent button for 5 seconds, then I attempt to cycle through the motions. Unfortunately it stalls at the closed, sagging position and will not return to vent. Any ideas?
