FOLDING FABRIC ROOF RESET

Make sure that the conditions listed below are met before carrying out the folding fabric sunroof reset procedure:

  • The ambient air temperature is between 5°C to 65°C.

  • The vehicle is at a standstill.

  • The vehicle's battery is sufficiently charged and the electrical connections are good.

The folding fabric sunroof needs to be reset if the battery is disconnected. Disconnection includes the battery becoming discharged, or an interruption to the power supply while the folding fabric sunroof is being operated.

Once the power supply is restored, reset the folding fabric sunroof as follows:

  1. Switch the ignition on.

  2. Use the switch to close the folding fabric sunroof to the fully closed position. Release the switch. See ELECTRIC WINDOWS.

    WARNING

    Vehicles with a folding fabric sunroof do not have an anti-trap system. Make sure that no occupants have any body parts in a position where they could become trapped. Serious injury or death could occur.

  3. Fully press and hold the front of the folding fabric sunroof switch for 10 seconds to start the reset cycle. Continue to hold the front of the folding fabric sunroof switch until the folding fabric sunroof moves forwards and backwards a small amount.

The folding fabric sunroof can now be operated as normal.
