Post subject: Wonky Sunroof issue, need help.

Tried to do the tilt open on the sunroof yesterday. Pushed button, roof tilted, but then immediately shut again. It operates normally when I pull back on the switch to open it fully but won't stay open when I try to have it tilt. Any help is appreciated.

I did a google search and came up with 5000+ hits on Sunroof issues for E46 and E39's. It may be best to check some of those yourself since you know more of the symptoms and issues than we do. The lift arms sound as if they could be the issue.

I would start with a reinitialization and see if it still does the same thing (hold the tilt button up for about 20 seconds. If it goes up and then immediately back down like usual then I would suggest trying to initialize it in INPA).

Same thing happened to my wife's X5 35d, except with the roof stuck in the tilt position, and I was not able to reinitialize with the button but INPA did the trick. Have not had an issue since.

That is where I would start because there are about 35,000 things it could be (tilt sensor, anti-pinch mechanism, sliders, alignment, rails, lift arms etc).

I tried the 20 second hold down trick and it didn't work. So I guess that means a visit to the stealership becuz INPA. Thanks for the suggestion.
