Sadly to report that my moonroof issue has returned. Car is in the shop again and I hope they can fix it for good this time. Seems to me it i a lemon and may have to think about it.
Yeah, that's total crap. I open and close mine all the time in AUX power only and it doesn't "forget" its programming afterwards each time. I have had to use the reset procedure once since it wasn't closing all the way with the single touch (was popping back to vent instead of closed) but has preformed great since then.I have had the 1-touch problem with my sunroof as well (sunroof = glass opens. moonroof = glass does not open ) Dealer has reprogrammed it twice, it stopped working the very next day and I've just been living with having to hold my finger on the button for the last several months. Didn't know about the reset in the manual - i'll have to look that up. The last time I was @ dealer for fix, they told me that the power that moves the glass & shade is separate and a less powerful battery than the main battery, when the car is "off" it looses it's programming. Sounds like total BS to me. They're basically telling me that I can't be sitting at a red light with my car in the "off" mode of "auto-start" and open the stupid sunroof, otherwise it'll loose it's programming? If true, that sounds like a pretty janky piece of hardware for a luxury car.
djd,In the shop now for 2 weeks as they needed to wait for the new sunroof. They finally received it and now they are waiting for "new model" so they can calibrate it. because of the sunroof the car has now been in the shop 3 of the last 8 weeks with no end in sight? At least this time they gave me an F-Pace courtesy car. NY State lemon law criteria is almost met!
I’m new to the forum but thought I’d post my sunroof experience of today.Sadly to report that my moonroof issue has returned. Car is in the shop again and I hope they can fix it for good this time. Seems to me it i a lemon and may have to think about it.
in my experience, the Ghost of Lucas lives on in the brand no matter who owns it ?I’m new to the forum but thought I’d post my sunroof experience of today.
I purchased the car used (2017 r sport) at CarMax last night, took it on some local errands this morning, parked it and opened the sunroof as part of learning the car’s features. It wouldn’t close. I tried the reset procedure listed in the manual (holding the button for 10 seconds) several times with no luck. I disconnected the battery for 60 seconds, reconnected and tried the normal method of closing ( no dice), the reset procedure ( no luck there either) then on a whim pressed both the sunroof and sunshade buttons IN THE MIDDLE simultaneously... and that closed the sunroof.
About fifty years ago a family member had an xk120 which they loved but commented that it wasn’t so fond of the rain and so would decide not to start on those days (Lucas electrics). Maybe Tata purchased / revived Lucas ?
Was this something that was covered buy the Warranty??Well, looks like nobody has any sunroof issues. Git the car back after a week at the dealership, ut when I arrived home, I had the same problem. They calibrated the sunroof and tested, but the sunroof just won't close all of the sudden again. Take the car back tomorrow and hope they can fix it correctly this time. From my experience, there might be something loose in the electronics or so, because it just does it once in a while. It worked fine for 5 days, but stopped again today. Then I hit the button for the cover, but the sunroof is moving. This is so odd.
I'm at the Thousand Oaks, CA Dealership. I brought it in several times. After this experience, I'm not buying another Jaguar in the future.I think a few have had some opening/closing issues but nothing like you reported that I can remember. Good luck. Hope to hear good news once you get the car back.
