POWER TOP - SUNROOF


DESCRIPTION
SUN ROOF

WARNING: Keep fingers and other body parts out of sunroof opening at all times.

The power sunroof system allows the sunroof to be opened, closed or placed in the vent position electrically by
actuating a switch located in the overhead console in between the two reading lamps. The sunroof system
receives battery feed through a 30 amp circuit breaker in the junction block. The sunroof system power is
supplied when the ignition switch is in the RUN and ACCESSORY positions. The sunroof will continue to
operate normally with the key in the OFF position or with the key removed while the Accessory Delay System
is active.
The sunroof glass panel tilts upward at the rear for ventilation and slides rearward under the roof when open.
The panel seals flush with the roof in the closed position to eliminate wind noise. The sunroof includes a
manual-sliding sunshade to cover the deep-tinted glass panel.
The sunroof is electrically operated from two switches located in the overhead console in between the two
reading lamps. The "VENT" switch is a push button type switch and opens the sunroof to the vent position only.
The other switch "OPEN/CLOSED" is a rocker type switch for opening and closing the sunroof. Pressing and
releasing the open button once, the sunroof will express open and the wind deflector will raise. If the button is
pressed a second time the sunroof will stop in that position. Pressing and holding the close button will close the
sunroof. If the close button is released the sunroof will stop in that position.
OPERATION
POWER SUNROOF

This vehicle has a vent, tilt and slide power sunroof system with express (one-touch) open feature. The sunroof
system receives battery feed through the "sunroof" relay and a 20 amp mini fuse located in the junction block.
The sunroof system power is supplied when the ignition switch is in the RUN and ACCESSORY positions. The
sunroof will operate normally with the key in any position while the Accessory Delay system is active.
The sunroof is electrically operated from two switches located in the overhead console in between the two
reading lamps. The "VENT" switch is a push button type switch and opens the sunroof to the vent position only.
The other switch "OPEN/CLOSED" is a rocker type switch for opening and closing the sunroof. Pressing and
releasing the open button once, the sunroof will express open and the wind deflector will raise. If the button is
pressed a second time the sunroof will stop in that position. Pressing and holding the close button will close the
sunroof. If the close button is released the sunroof will stop in that position.

OPERATION
SUNROOF SWITCH

The sunroof is electrically operated from two switches located on the windshield header, rearward of the map
lamp. The "VENT" switch is a push button type switch and opens the sunroof to the vent position only. The
other switch "OPEN/CLOSED" is a rocker type switch for opening and closing the sunroof. Pressing and
releasing the open button once, the sunroof will express open and the wind deflector will raise. If the button is
pressed a second time the sunroof will stop in that position. Pressing and holding the close button will close the
sunroof. If the close button is released the sunroof will stop in that position.
The switch is grounded at on terminal and receives a 5 volt signal from the sunroof motor/module on the
remaining three terminals. The switch pulls down the 5 volt reference voltage from the module signaling it to
perform the desired function.
