Q: Sunroof won't close

asked by on

The sunroof on my car won't close.

Hi. The electronic portion of your sunroof includes the sunroof switch, sunroof motor and body control module (BCM). The BCM supplies power to the sunroof motor when the operator pushes the switch. In some cases, a simple reset is all that is needed to get the BCM to close the sunroof properly. This may be the case with your vehicle. However, the problem could also be motor, the circuit or an internal BCM problem. A mechanical problem with the sunroof may be preventing it from closing too. I suggest you have a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect for electrical problems and replace any other failing components.
