(1998 528i) i have a problem with my sunroof to close. when i push the button foward it is suppose to shut...it doesn't, the sunroof thinks i'm pushing the button up so it opens the sunroof in the up position. i've switched the switch with my dad's 740il (1995) and it still has the same problem. do i need a new motor for the sunroof? cause it's working fine. is there a computer for the sunroof that i could reset or something?
All you need to do is initializing the sunroof module which is built in the motor. This is done by closing the sunroof completely then press the button up and keep it pressed. the roof will move to the top then goes down open all the way back and closes itself. by this the roof is initialised and should work normally.
