By 'reset', you mean having it open/close with one push of the switch? If so, you will need to 'hold' the open side of the switch until the sunroof completely opens.....hold the switch for about fifteen seconds; then push close side of switch until sunroof closes.....hold the switch for about fifteen seconds-or until you hear a beep. This should 're-program' your sunroof.

REMOVE THE FRONT KIDNEY EMBLEM, GET A DENTAL HOOK FROM HARBOR FREIGHT, AND TUG ON THE OPEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL CABLE, THIS WILL ACTIVATE THE LATCH TO OPEN. GO TO THE JUNKYARD TO PRACTICE ON AN ALREADY OPEN ONE SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

It thinks you are stealing it!

You have fallen foul of the anti-theft system!

Number one tip, maintain power when changing batteries with a couple of lengths of wire or jump leads.

Disconnect the battery for 2 hours. Put your key in the ignition, but not on. Reconnect the battery. The ECU will pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock. The ECU will then release power to the ignition system.

At present the ECU thinks you are trying to steal the car with a key that just happens to fit the lock. Clever stuff eh? Let me know how you get on by clicking COMMENT under my post.

It must be 2 hours to dissipate all power in the car held by electronics.
