2006 G35 Sedan Moonroof won't close

Postby peter1023 » Sun Jul 03, 2016 8:22 pm

Hey everyone. I have a 2006 G35 and when I opened the moonroof earlier today I was unable to close it. It will slide forward maybe 3/4 of the way...perhaps more...and then it bounces back and fully opens. It's like the limit switch is kicking in but I have no idea why. There don't seem to be any obstructions on the tracks...no debris I can see. Hopefully someone has an idea I can try...

It could be a simple "reset" is needed, or it may need a new motor (hopefully it's the former).

Try this to rest it:

INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
If the sunroof does not close or open automatically, use the following procedure to return sunroof operation to normal.
  1. Close the sunroof if it is not in the closed position. It may be necessary to repeatedly push the switch to close the sunroof.
  2. Press and hold the TILT UP switch. Do not release the switch, keep pressure on it. After 10 seconds of depressing, the sunroof will tilt up, then tilt down. Release the button.
  3. Press and hold the TILT UP switch again. Do not release the switch, keep pressure on it. While depressing the switch, the sunroof will “Slide open” “Slide close” “Tilt up” “Tilt down”. Release the button after the sunroof “Tilts down” and stops.
  4. Initializing procedure is complete. Confirm proper operation of the sunroof (slide open, slide close, tilt up, tilt down.)
