Sunroof Continues Closing After Shutting Vehicle Off

Recall Details

If the sunroof is activated while the vehicle is running and then the key is turned off, the roof will continue to close. This can cause a safety issue. Dealers will reprogram the sunroof control module software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The sunroof continues to close if the switch is activated and the vehicle is then shut off. The sunroof should stop moving as a safety feature when the vehicle is shut off.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Audi vehicle must be performed by a Audi dealership. Audi notified owners of affected vehicles in April 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Audi dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
