WK Moonroof stuck open-help
 
I was driving home today and since it wasn't raining I opened my moonroof to let some air in. I thought I pressed the express open a min before but I wasn't sure. I had pressed it 3 times before it opened. When I got close to home and I went to close it, it wouldn't close. With all this rain we got in the past few weeks and with what's to come I started to get worried. I tried banging the switch and roof of the truck where I thought the motor was and nthing. I then figured let me just go to the dealer which is 2 miles away. The service writer was acting like I was bothering him. They don't do loaners so I had to leave it or come back. I refuse to drive a brand new 3 month old truck with tarp taped to the roof. I called my GF to pick me up but something said try it again. I did and it finally closed but there was some kind of resistance. Has anyone ever had this problem before? And will the electrical mods I've done (all v-led interior, hid's, led cargo strip) do you think that could have caused it and would it void my warranty?

Only to pop up. To close or slide back it didn't make any noise. I got it closed now si I'll bring it to the dealer saturday for them to take a look at it.

Mine has done that once or twice but i got it to work within a few mins, just restarted the jeep. But i have heard that a reset is a common issue.

That sucks we can't reset it ourselves. I was able to reset the sunroof in my MB C280 - just had to hold the switch on the close position" until the sunroof closed and then hold it for another 2-3 seconds after it was closed and it would be good to go.

I know on mine, sometimes when I hit the auto close button on the sunroof then go to close this windows too... the sunroof stops closing then decides to open again! That happens quite often. A couple of times I was driving and i go to close it and it closes a 1/4 of the way then opens back up.

I believe that happens cause too much current is being drawn to the one circuit and that's what the pinch protection sensors go by to avoid closing on something in auto up/down mode. When something obstructs the window from closing in the auto up mode the amount of current changes and the pinch protection sensors stop the window and auto opens it. It's happen to me sometimes when I roll up more than one window at a time.

Good to know this is a known issue. I traded my 2003 Grand Cherokee for a 2010...with a moon roof...about a month ago. Today, the moonroof opened and won't close. So I will try it again. If it won't close I will take it to dealership. Thanks for the info.
