If your car is equipped with a sun roof, then it is opened and closed via a switch on the overhead console. The sun roof has two switches on the overhead console: the switch closest to the driver controls the opening and the closing. This switch has a symbol on one half for opening, and a symbol on the other half for closing. Press the corresponding half of the switch to its first detent and hold it until the window is opened or closed completely. Release the button at any point to stop the sun roof. The vehicle needs to be in On/Run, Acc/Accessory, or Retained Accessory Power (RAP) mode for the power sun roof to work.
