Alfa 147

sunroof not working

I own an 2001 Alfa 147, and the sunroof electronic controller suddenly broke down this morning.
Should i take it back to the dealer, or should i just take it to some auto electrician?

Re: sunroof not working

I own a 2002 alfa 147,when i took it for a test drive, i had a play with the sunroof to check if everything was ok,it worked straight off ,then stopped as i tried to shut it.What had happened was i had pushed the button up and then turned it,this seems to cause a problem and the garage had to do a reset,everythings fine now.

Re: sunroof not working

Oh the joys I had with my 147's sunroof!!!!!

Is it stuck open or closed?
(My car didn't even come with a hand crank!)

I had two units replaced before another dealer told
me it was a design flaw:

One thing to do is not open or close it
without the ignition on. What I was told is
that the roof controller sometimes gets lost
(as to what postion the roof is in) and shuts
down to avoid damage.

I only left the roof fully tilted, fully open or fully closed when
switching off the ignition. Then I never had a problem.
Using the key's remote open/close function screwed
with it as well.

If this is your problem I sometime was able to clear
it by switching on the ignition and moving the switch
position around, ( including pressing it ) until it unblocked.

Otherwise you need the dealer to sort it for you.

Hope you sort it.
