Volvo 850 sun roof problem

Post by tommyaleks » Sun Jul 08, 2018 12:43 pm

Hello all. I have a volvo 850 1996 with a electric sunroof. I was having problem with opening and closing the sunroof, it was the motor and some other things. I had to take it all out. Now it`s back in the car and it`s working again. But, it`s acting funny when I close it. When I push the button the roof closes but goes all the way up by it self, it`s not stoping at the roof line. I have to adjust it with the button when I close it to have it on the roof line. Have I done something wrong when I asebled it? or is this normal? can the control module be broken?



Thank you for any help.

There are some timing marks on the control module that need to be lined up. This might help:

Hey. Thank you. I was not aware of that. is there anything on the motor? When I set power to it is just spins around and if I turn the cables it spins the other way.

Do know where the sunroof should be when I mount the control modul again?

Finaly, fixed! to get the module in it`s place without disturbing the markings was a true pain in the butt, But I got it to work. working fine now and with no leaks :) Thank you Ozark Lee for the manual
