Pano Roof One Touch Shade Open
 
Hey guys, this is probably a dumb question, but has anyone figured out how to make the pano roof's shade open fully without having to press the button twice? I have to press the button, let it stop at halfway, and then press the button again to open the shade all the way... which is annoying.

If anyone knows how to fix that, I'd love to know.

It's a standard function... I found it weird in the first gen srx Cadillac (that operates its Sun shade similarly), but it seems to serve a purpose.... One I'm not sure of.. ahaha

I could be wrong, but if you press and hold the button for a second or two it will go all the way back. A quick touch only goes half way as you are experiencing now.

Mine opened once all the way also. Haven't recreated it,o I don't use the whole shade open. Gonna try it now also.

I tried holding it for 2 seconds today. All it did was open only while I was holding it.

From the OM:

Opening Power Shade — Express
Press the shade switch rearward and release it within one-half second and the shade will open automatically from any position. The shade will open fully and stop automatically. This is called “Express Open”. During Express Open operation, any movement of the shade switch will stop the shade.


My guess would be instead of just tapping the button to open, press and hold for less than half a second and see what happens. If you hold it too long it goes into manual mode.

I haven't figured out the magic, either. A couple of times it's opened fully, but I honestly don't know what I did differently. Maybe, as suggested, it's more than a momentary touch of the button.

Same here. Seems like it always did it when I first got my GCO but doesn't anymore. I thought I only imagined it opened fully before since it now stops part way at the same point all the time.
Reading the manual, and as MONGOOSE posted, it doesn't appear the shade has an express open that fully opens the shade with one touch like the pano window.

If your Jeep has had its battery disconnected (like at a service repair), then you may need to reset the Express function.
