Hi guys. There's no denying that the Alfa 159 looks sexiset when the sunroof is up. See mine in the attachments.
But the question is, how can I keep the roof up after locking the car and parking it?
It happened once, I came back and found that the roof was up and the car actually locked, but not sure how that happened.
Note: long pressing the unlock button would completely open the sunroof, not lift it up.
Any tips?

Sounds like a bug.

Try resetting the sunroof.

There's a thread around here somewhere with the exact procedure...

Are you suggesting that by default when the sunroof is lifted and I lock the car (with the remote control), the roof should remain up?
I don't think that, since when locking the car with the remote, not only the roof goes down (closes) but all windows close as well.
It seems that's built in the locking system.

Sorry could you elaborate on what you mean please ?
Are you saying that the sunroof would close down with the windows only if I long-press the lock button on the remote?

Not really. Mine closes even with a short normal press.

Then there's something up with the car.

Have you tried a battery disconnect reset?
(Only do this with the windows and roof fully closed.)

There is also a reset proceedure for the sunroof
which you could try.


Or perhaps it's just the lock button on your key remote
that is sticking?

Does it do it with both key remotes?

Thanks for trying to help man !
Please see my responses in BOLD.

Then there's something up with the car.

No, I am not sure I know how to do that.

There is also a reset proceedure for the sunroof
which you could try.

I tried that several times. That fixed a problem I had whereby the roof wouldn't reach that highest (last) level of lift, but the original problem (the fact that the roof would close when locking the car) still exists.


Or perhaps it's just the lock button on your key remote
that is sticking?

No, definitely not, the remote and its buttons are working as supposed, no button sticks.

Does it do it with both key remotes?

Yes
