Hi. There is a motor initialization procedure. If that is your problem and you would like to try to reinitialize it, here is the procedure:

Start the engine and allow the vehicle to run for one minute.

  1. Pull and hold the roof opening panel control switch until the sliding glass panel is in the fully CLOSED position. Release the control switch.
  2. Pull and hold the roof opening panel control switch until the sunshade panels are in the fully CLOSED position. Release the control switch.
  1. Pull and hold the roof opening panel control switch (for at least 10 seconds).
    • For a new drive assembly, the sliding glass panel will move toward the front hard-stop, stall and then move backward a few millimeters and then forward.
    • For an existing drive assembly, the sliding glass panel will move toward the front hard-stop and stall.
    • The sunshade panels will move toward their front hard-stops, stall, move back a few millimeters, then forward.
    • After the sunshade panels have finished moving backward and forward, release the roof opening panel control switch.
  1. Pull and hold the roof opening panel control switch.
    • The sliding glass panel and sunshades will fully open together. Then, the sliding glass panel will start to close first and then the sunshades will return to the fully CLOSED position. When the sunshades have stopped moving, release the roof opening panel control switch.
  1. Initialization is now complete. Verify successful initialization by carrying out one-touch open, one-touch close, one-touch vent (glass) and one-touch open for the shades.

If roof opening panel does not operate correctly, repeat Steps 2 through 5.
