If your SUV has a moon roof, it provides you with another means to vent the interior, to let in fresh air, and to let in more light. It’s also designed to be simple to use, but there are a few things you’ll want to know. Here’s how to operate your moon roof:

  1. Turn the key to on.

  2. Press the button at the back of the control panel (on the ceiling in front of the moon roof) to open it.

  3. Press the Front button to close it.

To Vent the moon roof:

  1. Press the front arrow with the moon roof closed. It will open to the vent position.
  2. Press the Front button again with the moon roof vented and it will close.


Opening and closing are both automatic. One touch on the back or Forward button will let you open or close it automatically. To stop it in either direction, just push the button again.
