Before you 2 take your cars apart you should do some more research. I was told by a Nissan dealer (Bommarito Nissan in metro Saint Louis) that this behavior indicates that a computer needs to be reset. I was told to hold down both buttons for 30 seconds and it would reset. This did not work for me yet, so I am in search of the magic to get the computer to reset. I have seen references to this in other forums. I will post back if I find it.

Harold, I had an issue several years back in my
2002 Nissan Maxima(totalled in a wreck last year back in July -RIP) where I couldn't get the sunroof to open at all. I wish I could remember exactly what I did, but I believe this
had something to do with when I had just had a new battery installed in the car, and at the time I thought there was something wrong with the sunroof(Actually, I was sort of cursing because my warranty had just run out!) But I'm
thinking I must have checked in the manual under the sunroof operation on how to get it working again. I just don't remember exactly what it was that I had to do. Does your manual for your Maxima have any info about the sunroof?

The same thing happened to me without provacation on my 2001 Maxima SE. All I did was disconnect the battery for a short time and it worked fine after that and has ever since.

The reset procedure for the sunroof on my 02 Maxima is to tilt the sunroof open then tilt it closed again. Once closed hold the tilt close button for a few seconds. This resets the slide control. If your sunroof is stuck in the open position you can use the tilt open/close to wiggle it back to closed.

Dealer said the entire motor and cable needs to be replaced at cost of $900.00. Sounds like a lot of BS to me.
That is total BS. One if the motor went you wouldn't be able to move the roof at all.
Secondly as it was stated before all you have to do is reset the moon roof. The way you Re- program the roof is by hitting the roof button so it opens it up all the way. Than close the roof in the same manor. By doing it a couple of time it will re program the roof. It takes about 5 minutes. That amount of work is definatley not worth $900.

Hey there. I know this an older post but I am experiencing the whole move 2-3 inches when opening problem too. I have seen a few ways to reset the whole function in this post from disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to holding a series of switches simultaneously, etc. Has anyone been successful with any of these methods or any other method and can you explain step-by-step so that my moronic mind can understand how to resolve this. I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima SE. Thanks.

Disconnecting the battery for a few mins solved my sunroof problem. I had the 2-3 inch movement issue as well.
#13 of 18 2001 Maxima GLE~ Brake and Charging Light Stay On
Sep 24, 2008 (6:00 pm)
I had my alternator, battery and starter motor as well as a small wiring harness replaced after the battery would not hold a charge and the car would not start for any apparent reason. It appeared that the battery needed to be replaced. That seemed to solve my problem,
Last week after three weeks of "no problems", the lights for the emergency brake light and for the battery light stay on. There does not seem to be a problem as far as the car starting and operation of all of the electrical demand on the cars charging system.
Last week while I ran the car, and after running the AC, the emergency brake light and the battery light are staying on after the normal self-diagnosis routine when staring a car. Their does not seem to be any problem with the electrical system. Everything that needs electricity operates as it should, and the car turns over like it did when new.
Why is this happening and how is this eliminated?
Does the cars computer need to be reset?

I have a 2008 Nissan Maxima. I just got some work done to it and the sunroof didn't slide open and close, but it would go up and down. I opened it, then closed it, then held the close button down for about 5 seconds and I'll be damned if it started sliding open and close. It worked!!! Thanks for the post.
#15 of 18 2008 Nissan Maxima Automatic Window
Mar 16, 2009 (5:03 pm)
I posted earlier about the sunroof problem which I corrected thanks to the post by disohl. I also noticed that when I hit the auto up on my driver's side window it would close, then come down about a 1/4 of the way. I don't know if that's because about a half hour before that, I held the unlock button to open the windows because the inside of my car was hot. I don't remember if I've ever done that or not. It kept doing that every time I tried to do the auto up function (it didn't do it if I held the up windown button). But, when I held the up button up to colse the windown, I held an extra 5 seconds and that fixed the problem. Now, I gotta find out what other mechanical and electrical things are screwy.
