Will it open fully?Have you inspected the tracks with it open and make sure nothing is on the tracks and no broken pieces laying around the tracks?
Will it open fully?
You can reinitialize it even if it will not fully close. Just follow the directions carefully. Its should reinitialize. If not, something is in the tracks or the tracks are broken.
Below are the directions from Ford. Follow them carefully.
Open the sunroof fully. Then turn the key off and then back on. Then press and hold the sunroof switch to close the sunroof. Then press and hold it again for 21 seconds or till the shade moves and then stops.
Disconnecting the battery never works. It only erases trouble codes.
There has to be an issue with the tracks then. Does it move fully forward, just not all the way even with the metal roof?
Turn the key off and remove the key and have the doors closed. Then turn the key to on with the engine off and press the button to close the sunroof and hold it down watching the roof panel and the sunshade. See if the glass moves at all. Press and hold it in the closed position. If not, disconnect the battery with the key off and wait 10 minutes and then reconnect the battery and retry the Roof Opening Panel Motor Initialization.
Did it close all the way?
Leave it closed till the rain is gone and you have a sunny day. The sun roof motors are actually modules and they need to be properly reinitialized. You can try later or take it to a dealership and have them do it.
Your welcome. Sometimes it take me 5 to 6 tries to get it to properly reinitialize at the dealership. Each sunroof set up is different.
