in my 92 325i, you can vent the sunroof but thats all it does, it doesnt open any more than that...what could cause this?

i believe the sunroof button didnt "reset" (electronically), and you had to hold it in one direction for a while, like it would get stuck open...it doesnt seem like thats the problem in your case....though maybe it could be since it only tilts up...?
