DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

Roof Opening Panel

The roof opening panel system consists of:

  • Roof opening panel air deflector
  • Roof opening panel control switch
  • Roof opening panel drain hoses
  • Roof opening panel frame
  • Roof opening panel glass
  • Roof opening panel motor/module
  • Roof opening panel shield
  • Roof opening panel trough

Roof Opening Panel Operation

The roof opening panel assembly uses an integrated motor and module to operate the roof opening panel. The roof opening panel is an electronically operated glass panel that has one-touch open, one-touch close and one-touch vent features.

To open the roof opening panel, press and release the slide control switch. The roof opening panel will open automatically. The roof opening panel movement can be stopped at any time by pressing the switch again.

To vent the roof opening panel, the roof opening panel must first be in the CLOSED position. When the roof opening panel is in the CLOSED position, press and release the tilt control switch. The roof opening panel will move to the VENT position automatically. To close the roof opening panel from the VENT position, pull and hold the tilt control switch until the glass panel stops moving.

To close the roof opening panel, pull and release the slide or tilt control switch. The roof opening panel will close automatically. The roof opening panel movement can be stopped at any time by pressing the switch again.

When an obstacle has been detected in the roof opening panel as the sliding glass is closing, the roof opening panel will automatically reverse direction and open to a predetermined position. To override obstacle detection, pull and hold the slide or tilt control switch within a short period of time from the initial glass reversal. The glass will operate in manual mode with bounce-back detection turned off. After a short period of time, bounce-back mode will be reactivated.

Bounce-Back

The roof opening panel has a bounce-back feature. If an obstacle has been detected in the roof opening panel as the sliding glass is closing, the roof opening panel will automatically open and stop at a predetermined position.

Security Override

To override a bounce-back condition (to overcome the resistance of ice on the roof opening panel seal for example), within 2 seconds of a bounce-back event, pull and hold the slide control switch. The closing force will begin to increase each time the roof opening panel is closed for the first 3 closing cycles (bounce-back will still be enabled).

Global Open

NOTE: The global open feature may be enabled/disabled via scan tool or in some cases modified by the customer following a procedure listed in the vehicle Owner's Literature. For a complete list of available programmable parameters, refer to Section 418-01.

When the unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter is held for 2 seconds, the Smart Junction Box (SJB) sends a signal on the global open circuit, to both front door window motors and the roof opening panel motor, to open the windows. If the accessory delay relay is active, the global open feature will not operate.
