I push the button and it closes AND reopened. Push again, same thing. Three times. I left it alone (I had a ways to go) and it was fine later.

I'm wondering if it's a case of "you said your car was hot by your use of the key fob and we at BMW care about you so much we refuse to allow you to close the moon roof until we determine the interior temp is cool enough."
Wishful thinking lol...

Probably a pinch sensor malfunction (or something actually in the way). I had this same problem with mine on two separate occasions. It eventually closed and stayed shut. IIRC, Southern reported this too.

For the record, I did not use my keyfob to open anything and this was at the end of a long drive when I was securing the vehicle.
