Only does it while parked. The replacement components also malfunctioned, burning the leather seat and once again, burned me. I say just get a convertible.

I have one in my honda civic and it's awesome. The failure mileage was 16,257 and the current mileage was 47,000. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the failure was unable to be diagnosed. I've seen at least two comments on the web about similar problem, but the dealer and the vw customer service claims that they have never seen this problem before. I own a Subaru Forester with a sunroof and it leaks when you go through a car wash. I think it's the popup windscreen.
A few weeks ago when driving home, my sunroof lifted open not all the way, but like I turned the dial to the right. For those of us who live in colder climates, I love them. It makes the car feel so much bigger inside. The dealer could not find the cause of the failure. Week later the problem reoccurred. If you can open and close the sunroof manually, then the motor is broken and needs to be replaced. Mine gets to the windscreen, then bumps back.
Not easy, but it's really the only way. Solution simple, traded in my 1yr old car for a better car, one that works!. Most people don't even use or enjoy them after a while. I've read of several instances of this happening and feel this is a real safety hazard. There may be something obstructing the path. Ultimately I turned the know to the close position reached up with my other hand and pulled it shut - thank god.
I had this problem one really hot day, my sunroof just sort of wigged out for an hour or two while driving. The issue may be calibration, the motor, a damaged guide, foreign debris preventing proper movement, or it could be the module itself. A sunroof is an excellent way to get additional sun or air into your vehicle. I have always had a sunroof high on my list of options. I'm a huge fan of moonroofs. If your sunroof suddenly becomes stuck open, and it's rainy or cold outside, you've got a major problem.
I had the same problem when I was detailing my car. It had always slowed down when it hit the wind screen, but one day it just decided that wind screen was too much and it would open back up. It seems to get to about that point and maybe the pressure to push the screen down is enough to cause it to reverse. I played with it today and it's the windscreen. When turned back on, it didn't do it again. It was a puddle on the bottom of my car. This is just one of the problems on this car, the clutch gets stuck repaired twice , the sunroof trim broke off and needed to be replaced, the engine makes a rattling noise when shifting fixed twice , stereo system swallowed my cd twice before new system installed , and air conditioning releases an awful moldy smell when turned on which dealer refuses to attempt to fix.
Maybe there is debris or something that is triggering the sensor? Waste of time to take back in for them to tell me nothing found. I went to look at a Honda Fit and one of the deal breakers was that it did not have a sunroof. There were no outside influences rock that could have caused this to happen. Where is the sensor that you tape was blocking? For further troubleshooting,go through this help link:---- Click the link mentioned below:------ How to Manually Close the Sunroof? I went to dealership, they looked at it, found nothing wrong. Sunroof broke, would not move and needed the entire thing replaced including the motor. If I push the windscreen down with my hand it closes fine. Open, close, open, close, open, close.
I have a small child and I don't think he appreciates asphyxiation from so much wind in his face on the long drives to the dealer to be replaced. It always struggles a little more when it gets to the windshield on closing. That is unless you want to have it continually in the shop and having to spend a lot of money on repairs. Today, almost nonstop at one point. Some sunroofs have an emergency close feature where you can put an allen wrench or screwdriver on the motor and manually make it close.
It was a very loud bang, which caused me to swerve. I've never had mine leak on me either or any operational problems with it. It only stopped once I got to my destination and the car was off for about half an hour. I have been there, it was plugged drains. It's also possible that the sunroof knob is out of sync with the sunroof itself. I stopped at the dealership and they said it must have been a rock or something, and the Volkswagen rep who was at the dealership didn't even come out to speak with me, or look at the car.
