The Vermeulen Hollandia tilt and slide sunroof on my 1996 Subaru Impreza has stuck open. We swapped the fuse for another one in the car and it closed. However, when we tried to open it again it stuck in the same position as before. The fuses have been changed again and we can't reproduce the opening. There is a click when we try and use the control button but no movement of the sunroof. Any suggestions?

First, were the fuses that you replaced the first BLOWN sunroof fuse with the same size? Example, 5 or 10 or 20amps...I am going to assume they were the same or you probably would have burned up the sunroof motor or just blown the replacement fuse real quick. Can you help the motor by pressing the palm of one or both of your hands against the inside of the sunroof glass and push the sunroof button while trying to help the sunroof slide back with your hand or hands. (Obviously if you use both hands someone else will have to push the sunroof button unless you have an extra arm and hand) If it slides back with the help of your hands, either the sunroof is sticking against the slide or the motor is worn down and just doesn't have enough strength to move it anymore. You could try to use a light coating of oil on the slides where the sunroof touches as it slides back and forth. Something like WD-40 preferabley but you could even use any motor oil, worst case "Cooking Oil". Good luck with my suggestions!!

Sounds like the sunroof motor is out of time. Needs to be re-timed. There is a retime procedure, (that I would try first) but I don't remember the whole procedure. if you still have the problem, let me know and i will get the whole thing , from the service manual.

SOURCE: Sunroof will not close. The sunroof is stuck in

Can't say for sure about this particular model, but most vehicles with sunroofs have a manual crank for situations like this. Generally it is located forward of the sunroof on the roof of the interior of the car, sometimes under a panel or interior light. This at least will get the roof closed until the problem can be fixed. It may also allow the sun roof to realign itself and help the electric crank to start working again.

Sounds like sunroof is stuck, motor can't overcome load. Cheap test: car off, interior light turned on try to move sunroof, does light dim? If yes motor is trying to move but can't. If light does not dim then motor not getting power.

Back doors on car locked cant open


I think you have a short circuit in "that headlight wire" that is causing the fuse to keep blowing due to a dead short.
Maybe a positive voltage wire that is touching the ground (metal part) on you car or touching some other connection.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Which fuses control the remote deck release and memory seats on a 2002 Toyota Avalon XLS


make sure it is in park with ignition on to adjust seat,
CONDITIONS FOR MEMORIZED POSITION ACTIVATION Ignition key "ON" and shift lever in "P" position All parts of the memorized positions can be activated. However, if the brake pedal is being depressed, the seat position will not change. Key not in ignition switch and within 30 seconds of opening driver's door The memorized position can be activated. If any driving position memory switch is pushed while one of the memorized driving position profiles is being activated, the operation will stop. To reactivate the system, push the desired button ("1" or "2") again. The driving position memory control system cannot be operated while the vehicle is moving. If the vehicle's battery is disconnected, the computer's memory will be erased and the memorized position will have to be set again.

No dash lights no start for 98 breeze


Power runs from battey to starter solenoid , from there to ignition switch and through neutral switch on the transmission shift lever. Tracking down shorts is easiest if you connect a 12v test light across the fuse clips and start disconnecting wires one at a time until the light goes out. But in your case I think a physical exam of the wires to the neutral switch may reveal your problem Good luck!

Sun roof will not open or close


First check your fuse box, for any fuse blow, position 26 in the Passenger Fuse Box (Box C), then keep in mind that the power sunroof is controlled by a switch that selects the direction of travel of the sunroof. The switch changes the polarity of the voltage going to the sunroof motor. This changes the rotation of the motor, thereby changing the direction of sunroof travel.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figure 1)
  1. Open the sunroof to the ventilation position.
  2. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  3. Push down the sunroof headlining with a finger. Unhook the retaining springs with a bent piece of wire.
  4. Pull down on the headlining sufficiently to pass beneath the gutter rail. At the same time, slide the sunroof to the rear to release the catches at the front.
Do not pull the sunroof too far to the rear; otherwise, it will be difficult to remove again.
  1. Unhook the spring retaining brackets.
  2. Remove the retaining screws from the sides and front.
  3. Remove the sunroof.
To install:
  1. Fit the sunroof into position and install the retaining screws.
  2. Install the spring retaining brackets.
  3. Slide the sunroof forward to engage the catches in the front.
  4. Install or reposition any trim moved for access.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
