hi guys,
I've got a really weird sunroof problem on a 98 Patrol---Every time I turn the ignition on the sunroof opens, and won't close again!!!!!!
I've tried disconnecting the switch in the roof pod, still does the same.
I thought I'd try taking the fuse out, but I don't know which one it is 'cos the panel on the fuse box that says which is which is missing.
I would take the connection off of the motor but I think the head lining's got to come off??
Can't take it to a garage either 'cos it's really wet here
So can anyone HELP??? Any ideas?? Please?????

If anyone's got that fuse panel they could scan and send me I'd be really gratefull-----or even a panel they don't want.

Pretty desperate as I've got a 600 odd mile round trip I've got to do at the weekend.
Cheers.

Hi Flash,
It's got an alarm, but that was disconnected before I got it. It's R Reg, and I've had it for about 3 years.
Pulling the fuse is part of the problem----I don't know which one it is, 'cos the panel's missing and I can't find a diagram anywhere.

I've managed to close it manually, but everytime I turn the ignition on---yep---it opens!!! So I'd be happy to just disconnect it for now.

looking into this further it wont be the window relay as this does the main windows too

i would say its the relays in the motor unit its self

btw if you pull the fuse you will loose the rest of the windows acording to the diagrams

A big thanks Flash.
Looks like for now I'll just have to take the headlining out and disconnect the bloody thing.
Oh well, such is life.

you should be able to take out the interior light and surround you may just be able to get enuff room to unclip the wiring off the motor
