Until it gives up, which is common. Is there something I am missing here Owners manual is Ok Im sure it has to be a relay or something but what the hell Went to work today and sunroof didnt open. The fat one couldn't even if he got a pulse. Gravity will make the water drain down. Good luck people and Ive tried to answer some questions at the bottom of this post. Repair involves removing the headliner. A representative from the manufacturer stated that they are not aware of this type of failure.
Part 3B0877011A is the frame with operating mechanism for vehicles with glass sliding roof panel. I used everyday household materials - a pencil eraser isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip. I also have the weathertech liners inside the car for my coupe and have the moonroof deflector as well. Glass from the middle of the sunroof was in little pieces on top of the headliner. Does it sound like the motor is shot The lights still work so i dont think its the fuse. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the fuel pump in these vehicles can fail cutting off the fuel supply and resulting in the engine stalling. Once open, it may close itself at randomly and unpredictably.
I started to lose it and thought of something. I took my multimeter and tested the negative battery cable versus the negative lead on the battery. Terminals are clean and tight. That was a fun drive home. Yes that was bit a bit frustrating but not the real issue here. The failure mileage was 95,000.
My car has a sunroof. A few thoughts based on seeing issues crop up round here Id check the microswitch in the door lock mechanism for both the drivers and passengers front doors - both the ones for door closure and the ones for the lock open I searched Clubb5 for interior lights and read about 6 pages worth of stuff without finding my answer so Im asking afresh. I wonder if one of your latch switches was being held in the unlock position That taligentx link you posted has great info So I am guessing this is going to be a ccm issue but heres the list of symptoms all of which have appeared within 12 hours of each other and are persistant. Our goal is to keep our customers happy for a lifetime and always reach a fair resolution to any issue. I immediately pulled over and identified that the sunroof had just shattered.
As I understand it because of the dial type switch feedback is needed from the comfort control module so it knows how much to open and close it. Dont be surprised if you find water under the carpet its unfortunately a somewhat common occurrence on these cars. The failure mileage was approximately 95,000 and the current mileage was approximately 102,000. My trunk will not latch but the alarm will arm if you push the trunk down. Today it finally happened to me.
I couldnt figure it out so I just turned off the interior lights. The drivers side floor is soaking wet and we have been trying to dry it out for 6 days now. Over time, the track gets dirty and the mechanism sticks, which causes the cable to break. That may be a hint. Other common places for water to leak in is from a bad windshield gasket if you recently had the windshield replaced or the shelf area under the windshield.
It's a good job that car didn't have a panoramic roof, although the analogy with an aquarium was classic. If you Good write up I would not know what to think if my sunroof just opened at random driving down the road or something. The liners are true to size so they'll pop on with ease. The sunroof on my 99 B5 will just open at will and then not necessarily close. The floor of the vehicle underneath the driver seat becomes wet and there is a possibility of shock from wiring under the seat. Let me start by saying I do not own a passat. Last year I had the water in the rear passenger side problem and proceeded to check the air filter gasket as directed by previous threads.
The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. It wont move at all. I tried the crank it open and close it with the key in the door trick but that didnt work. I had removed the dead pedal cover a while ago and went to put it back on today when a noticed a wire sticking out of the kick panel. Warranty is no good as the car already has over 86 thousand miles on it.
