My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If you are seeing a message for the sun roof being open this is usually caused by a faulty position sensor/switch for the sun roof itself to where the sensor is sending an incorrect signal that the roof is open when it isn't.I would have this tested further to see if the sensor/switch is at fault and replaced as needed.Unfortunately my info isn't pointing out where this sensor is located on your model here but in some cases it is part of the sun roof control motor itself.
Thanks Pete
