Pano Sun Roof Problem
After three dealers came up with three different reasons why my panoramic sun roof rear panel wasn't closing, I managed to close the roof entirely AND DISCONNECTED THE WIRING HARNESS FROM THE SWITCH to prevent accidentally hitting the button and opening the roof.
Last night the BMW ghosts must have been at work. When I got in the car yesterday morning I immediately noticed that all the windows were down halfway and the roof panels were OPEN.
I am now beginning to think that my problems all along have been related to a failing ZKE !
When I reconnected the switch yesterday I was able to move the front panel to a closed position and raise and lower it. Likewise the rear panel goes up and down, but will not return to its full close position so that it is now (1) slightly under the front panel and opened about 1 inch.
Spending $4000 with a dealer is not possible.
Anyone have any suggestions. This problem first raised its ugly head in late December when on a snowy night, I parked the car in the driveway. Next morning the roof was eitirely open and the windows were half down. I turned the key, pushed the button and all was well.
Since roof panels occasionally work properly in tandem, I just wonder if a relay is failing, causing the roof to move by itself (at night) and to get completely out of sync. I have tried reinitializing the roof, but it goes through some cycles and looks like it is trying. The sun shade opens fully automatically, but returns in four inch increments and a lot of button pushing.
Any ideas and help on this would be appreciated.
