The British automaker, Land Rover, is known around the world for its luxury sport utility vehicles. The mid-size Range Rover Sport is a popular model of these SUVs that was in production from 2005 to 2013 with the first generation. As much as Land Rover fans love their vehicles, they do experience some mechanical issues with them on occasion.
Some drivers of the Range Rover Sport have complained of having an inoperable sunroof on their vehicles. The sunroof motor does not respond when the driver uses the switch to open the sunroof. There is also no manual override to open or close the sunroof. While it may be annoying to not be able to open the sunroof on a nice day, if the driver cannot close the sunroof once it is open this could cause a problem should it start to rain.
Some drivers have suggested that initializing the sunroof may fix this problem. This would involve turning on the engine and then pressing the sunroof activation switch, then holding the button in for thirty seconds, then releasing it. After this process, hit the button and see if the sunroof responds. If this doesn't work it may be necessary to seek the help of a professional.
If you are the owner of a 1st Generation Range Rover Sport sport utility vehicle and are having trouble operating its sunroof, you should consider bringing it in to your local Land Rover service expert. A professional mechanic will be able to troubleshoot the problem and give you and estimate for repair. In many cases, this will be much cheaper than if you took your vehicle in for repair at a dealership.
