1999 Chrysler Concorde Q&A
1999 Chrysler Concorde Question: Regarding Sunroof.
The sunroof features a power sliding glass panel and a sunshade which can be manually positioned anywhere along its travel, rearward of glass panel front edge. The sunroof is electrically operated from a two switches located on the windshield header, rearward of the map lamp. To operate the sunroof the ignition switch must be in the On/Run position. One switch (CLOSE) is a push button type and used too close the sunroof. Pressing and holding the CLOSE button, the sunroof will fully close. If the CLOSE button is released prior to the sunroof reaching the fully closed position, the sunroof will stop in that position. The other switch (OPEN/VENT) is a rocker type for opening and venting the sunroof. Pressing and releasing the OPEN button once the sunroof will express open and the wind deflector will raise. If the button is pressed a second time the sunroof will stop in that position. To open the sunroof from the vent position, push and hold the open button. The sunroof will not express open until you have passed through the full closed position. The OPEN button may be released and the sunroof will continue to open in the express open feature. If the VENT button is pressed and held while the sunroof is in the open position, the sunroof will travel to the close position and then to the vent position. Releasing the button at anytime during the travel will cause the sunroof to stop at that current position. The sunroof system is timed from the factory so that the motor shuts off automatically when the sunroof window reaches a certain position. Extreme care must be taken when removing the motor, timing may be thrown off causing possible damage to the sunroof system. Anytime the motor is removed from the sunroof assembly the sunroof glass panel must be in the FULLY CLOSED POSITION or the unit will be out of timing. The drive motor cannot be reset to the park position after being removed. In addition, a slipping or binding cable can cause the Sunroof motor to go out of timing. - Johnny Mopar
