Sunroof stuck closed – fix stuck sunroof
MVS Forums Contributor brandonbeach14 disconnected his 2001 V70’s battery, and now his sunroof won’t open. This is how to fix a stuck sunroof after you’ve disconnected the battery, and explanation why it happens.
My electric sunroof won’t open after I had to disconnect the battery cables in the engine bay to get to the O2 Sensor connection below. It was disconnected for about 45 minutes. I have already pulled the fuses and the other int. accessory fuses, but they look good. I went ahead and changed the fuse just incase and still nothing. Is there an internal fuse in the motor? Or possibly the car has to run through a few drive cycles before everything comes back online?

This happens to me every time I do a battery. SO I will tell you all how to get it to work.
- Roll down drivers window and close door.
- lock car and wait 1 Minute (this will set the alarm system even if siren is bad).
- Reach in through open window and open door (will set off alarm).
- Use key in door to shut off alarm.
- Sunroof works. Have been doing this for several years and works every time.

Try disconnecting again the battery black cable (-) for 12h overnight. WHen disconnecting and reconnecting it have the ignition key in position II.
