I had this issue for the past month. My warranty expired about 6 months ago and I was certain that the dealer would charge me an arm and a leg to fix this. So glad you posted this hack. Sure enough, I did exactly what you said and the issue is resolved -- for free!!!

Thanks for making my week!

Sunroof went out on the first day of the year, glad I searched before calling the dealership. Will try it tonight.

Going to have to try this tomorrow morning. Hope it works. Sunroof doesn't sit flush when closed.

This is initializing the sunroof...I can do it with my BT scanner. I didn't know there was a manual way to do it.

Check to see if anything is blocking it...my friends sunroof had a walnut or acorn or something wedged into the track and it wouldn't shut all the way.

Just happened to me last night. At dinner I was so upset trying to figure out when I could make time to bring the car in. Tried this easy reset and problem solved. Now, no dealer hassle needed!

Thanks

I have tried this fix-it solution several times and nothing seems to work for my sunroof. When I hold the tilt button, the sunroof will partially tilt and won't do anything else. I have to keep hitting the tilt button for the sunroof to crack or even move a 1/2". I thought it was the motor for the sunroof but now I have no clue? BMW would like an arm and a leg just to look at it, of course.

This is what mine did two months ago so i bought it in for service oil change and told the SA to fix it at the same time. He said its easy fix but i forgot to ask him how he did it so now i'm having this same problem so I will try this out today!

Thanks, glad it was an easy fix...I was just defending bmws to someone who told me it was a money-pit, thought I was going to have to eat my words for a second...just for the record, I would drive it even if it was a money-pit
