2005 Cadillac SRX V6 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
2005 cadillac front end thumping noise
That's a tough one since there can be so many different causes, starting with something loose under the hood to a problem with the suspension (sway bar links, control arm bushing, ball joint, strut mount, motor mount, etc etc). This can be a serious safety issue, so if it were my vehicle, I would first get to a dealer or alignment shop right away to have the front end suspension, tires and wheels checked.

2012 srx moon roof stuck in vent position
Most times when that happens it could be a mechanical blockage. In the tool kit that came with the car there should be a hex tool to manually close the roof. There should be an access panel at the front with a pop off cover. If you remove that cover there should be a female hex that the tool fits into to manually close the roof. If you have the female hex on the sunroof but no tool, most times the correct size allen/hex wrench will do in a pinch. Try opening the sunroof fully with the tool and verify there is nothing in the rails or lead screws the will keep it from closing fully. Also check for a blown fuse to the sunroof.

What causes message rear door open on the DIC? The liftgate will not open or close.
Door ajar switch possibly . The lift gate not working is a different matter . Could be any number of thing's .
Power Liftgate System Components
• Liftgate motor assembly
• Liftgate latch
• Liftgate module (LGM)
• Liftgate side upper sensor - left
• Liftgate side upper sensor - right
• Liftgate handle switch
• Liftgate close switch
• GMLAN serial data link
• PWR LIFT GATE 30 amp fuse
• PLG 10 amp mini-fuse
Your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tool that can communicate with the lift gate control module , too check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's .
The liftgate module controls the liftgate motor, liftgate clutch, and liftgate latch based on various inputs. The liftgate module also performs diagnostics on these inputs and outputs and will disable liftgate functionality and set DTCs should a fault be detected. The liftgate module is secured to the motor assembly at the left rear of the vehicle. The module requires a liftgate position learn procedure be performed when replacing. This allows the module to learn the full open and full closed positions of the liftgate.

Reset computer disconnecting battery
The fact you say that disconnecting and resetting the computer tells me the following::
This sounds like it is going into "Limp mode" a mode the computer puts the vehicle into when it detects something is wrong , or sometime is programed to do this when the vehicle is way overdue for its service, I would suggest that you take it to a reputable dealer and ask them to read the computer to see what fualt codes are showing , this should help solve the mystery or at least point you in the right direction.
The onboard computer is forcing the vehicle into the "Limp Mode" your dealer yould know this and should have checked the onboard computer first
