2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG: Sunroof Fail

June 10, 2014

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

The sunroof in our 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG used to work correctly. It doesn't anymore.

See!

UPDATE: It's fixed!

Holding the button (or pressing it) SHOULD open the sunroof all the way. It doesn't. All it does is move the sunroof an inch or so back. Then you have to press it again. Then again. Then again.

The return feature still works correctly, but for now, the sunroof is dead to me. All four windows still go down.

UPDATE: This one falls on me. I knew this happened with windows but never considered it would happen on a sunroof. User Turbospark was the first one to call me out. "Dead battery will do that; to the windows too. Don't press it to the double stop auto-open setting - just halfway and hold while it opens all the way and for 5 seconds after. Should work right after that..." 100% right. Took all of 11 seconds including getting into the car.
