Diagnosis & Testing
  1. Disconnect the sunroof switch.
  2.  
  3. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  4.  
  5. Connect a 3-amp fused jumper wire to the low reference circuit of the sunroof switch harness connector.
  6.  
  7. Connect the other end of the 3-amp fused jumper wire to the sunroof switch open signal circuit of the sunroof switch harness connector, for 3 seconds. If the sunroof opened, check the connector and wiring at the switch.
  8.  
  9. If the sunroof did not open, disconnect the 3-amp fused jumper wire.
  10.  
  11. Measure the voltage from the sunroof switch open signal circuit of the sunroof switch harness connector to the low reference circuit of the sunroof switch harness connector. If the voltage measures close to 5 volts, test the sunroof switch close signal circuit for a short to ground.
  12.  
  13. If the voltage was not as specified, measure the voltage from the sunroof switch open signal circuit of the sunroof switch harness connector to a good ground. If the voltage measures close to 5 volts, test the sunroof switch low reference circuit for an open.
  14.  
  15. If the voltage was not as specified, disconnect the sunroof motor/actuator harness connector.
  16.  
  17. Measure the voltage from the battery positive voltage circuit of the sunroof motor/actuator harness connector to a good ground. If the voltage is not close to battery voltage, repair the short to ground or open in the battery positive voltage circuit of the sunroof motor/actuator assembly.
  18.  
  19. If the voltage is close to battery voltage, measure the voltage from the accessory voltage circuit of the sunroof motor/actuator harness connector to a good ground. If the voltage is not close to battery voltage, repair the short to ground or open in the accessory voltage circuit of the sunroof motor/actuator assembly.
  20.  
  21. Turn OFF the ignition.
  22.  
  23. Measure the resistance from the ground circuit of the sunroof motor/actuator harness connector to a good ground. If the resistance is 5 ohms, test the switch signal circuit for an open. If the resistance is not 5 ohms, repair the motor assembly circuit open.
  24.  
  25. If the wiring and connectors for the switch are ok, replace the switch.
  26.  
  27. If the wiring and switch check out ok, replace the motor.

  1. Turn the ignition OFF, disconnect the appropriate sunroof or sunshade module harness connector.
  2.  
  3. Test for less than 1.0 ohm of resistance between the ground circuit terminal 1 and ground. If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
  4.  
  5. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 6 and ground. If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal and the B+ circuit fuse is open, replace the fuse and determine if the sunroof or sunshade module is causing the fuse to open. Replace the appropriate module.
  6.  
  7. Turn the ignition ON, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 3 and ground. If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the body control module.
  8.  
  9. Connect the sunroof and sunshade modules.
  10.  
  11. Disconnect the appropriate sunroof or sunshade switch.
  12.  
  13. Test for less than 1.0 ohm of resistance between the ground circuit terminal B and ground. If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
    NOTE
    Apply ground to the module for no longer than 2 seconds at a time or the module could be damaged.


    NOTE
    When performing the following tests, make sure that the sunroof or sunshade is not at its end if travel position by switching the grounded jumper to the other signal circuit if the sunroof or sunshade did not move in one direction.

  14.  
  15. Momentarily install a 10-amp fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal D and ground. The sunroof or sunshade should move. If the sunroof or sunshade does not move, test the switch signal circuit for a short to ground, short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit test is normal, replace the inoperative module.
  16.  
  17. Momentarily install a 10-amp fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal E and ground. The sunroof or sunshade should move. If the sunroof or sunshade does not move, test the switch signal circuit for a short to ground, short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit test is normal, replace the inoperative module.
  18.  
  19. If all circuits test normal, replace the appropriate sunroof or sunshade switch.
