I have a 2001 330xi and the moonroof seems to have just started misbehaving. It seems that the controls have all become “remapped” (for the lack of a better word). Both the “close” and the “partial open” functions seem to be doing the “partial open” thing, and the “open” position doesn’t seem to be doing anything.

Anyone experience a similar problem and know if there is an easy solution short of taking the thing into the shop? FWIW, I am no longer under warranty.

Perhaps someone knows how to open that panel as well? If I could get in there and take a look, perhaps something is misaligned?

-John

you don't have to take it apart. Just go to your car hold the sunroof button by pressing/pushing it IN for a little while; this will put it in some kind of reinitialization mode; try it again it should get back to its default setting......This procedure is in your manual.

good luck

This happened to my wife's 03 325i 3 months after we brought the car.

If it's under warranty, just take it back to the dealer.

He/she was saying:

hence my free advise to press button and to read the free manual which came with the car!
