but the sunroof was working last week when i tried it and was fine without any suspected crunches/noises etc... it just seems that when i done this mod it doesn't work :/ i hope its not broken
The fact there's no clicking is a good sign, I've got a switch panel and a motor here but the motor has 5 wires going into it (white,green,grey,blue,purple) in that order so.not a basic live and earth like I said before you're more than welcome to pop across and try swapping bits out to see if we can get it workingI held the switch for 10 secs and I hear more of a slight movement noise from motor but that's it. No clicking after this though!
That sounds awfully like a faulty switch to me but it could well be the motor as wellOk I have a wiered one here... I manually opened the sunroof with my Allen key and kept my finger on the switch for a few seconds to see if it would click/work, then it closed but does not work after when it's closed :/
No, by using the Allen key, you disable the calibration, so if you have used the Allen key, you need to calibrate again using the same method. After you calibrate, it will never open first time, it can take 5 or more clicks to get it to open, but after that, it is calibrated and will work normally assuming it's OK.I opened it further manually and it closes with the close button but not the open...does this mean switch is knackered or can this be fixed for the open?
Not quite, keep pressing the open button after calibration until the roof moves, for 5-10 seconds each time. You may end up pressing it quite a few times before anything happens.correct me if i'm wrong. I press the shut roof (close) button and hold for 10 seconds, wait for a click or motor noise, release, then i press the open button once, release, then press the open button again for 10 seconds? if i got this sequence correct then it's not working for me. I've tried several times but no luck. I guess my only option is to try a swap and see if it remedies this situation. I might have to pay you a visit icowie but i will contact you via PM and take it from there.
even if i do get another switch to test does this mean that because it wasn't calibrated like Kleynie mentions, will i have the same issue with a replacement switch?
