    Default Electric sunroof not opening

    Well what a lovely boiling hot day it is here in Skegness but went to open my Sunroof and nothing happened, no tilt or slide.

    It was factory fitted on my Signum Elite can anyone suggest where I should start looking or testing, or which fuse it should be running off

    Many thanks in advance

    Not many people have them, I'm sure the fuse locations are in the owners manual.

    May sound daft but have you took the key out of ignition and tried again. Happened once on my vectra elite, sunroof not working. Took key out. Put it back in, tried again and worked fine.

    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : SE Touring

    Engine : 3.0

    Year : 2007

    Try the limit resets...

    Ignition on

    Switch to full closed..... press and hold switch for 5 secs.

    Switch to full open.... press and hold switch for 5 secs after sunroof has fully travelled.

    Switch to full closed.... press and hold switch for 5 secs after sunroof has fully travelled.

    Switch to full tilt.... press and hold switch for 5 secs after sunroof has fully travelled.

    Switch to full closed.... press and hold switch for 5 secs after sunroof has fully travelled.



    Of course this all assumes the sunroof actually moves...

    ... if it doesn't then you're looking at fuse 3 in the Passenger Fusebox (longest strip of fuses, 3rd from top)...

    ... and after that comes narrowing down if either the switch, motor or parts/wires in between have failed.

    If I disconnected the battery at all then it required a simple reset of simply pushing the button in and waiting for it to catch up to itself...
