lr3 sunroof not working

Hi Guy's

Its not my defender but the wives lr3. The sun roof is not working pulled fuse 20 still ok. Tried re calibrating the sunroof 20 second trick not working so i am getting more frustrated
Could it be a bad switch? any ideas?

This is why i love the simplicity of the defender.

Starting with the simpler things, could be switch.
I don't know about the LR3, but if the sunroof is stuck in the open position on older Rovers, there is an emergency hand crank under the front interior light. A hex wrench is all it takes.

There is no setting for the sunroof in the LR scanner or any other other scanner so it a old fasion trace. Ive never heard of the sunroof motor going bad so I would start at the switch. have fun...

During VOT my partner's got stuck open and if I recall Trevor & Keith ended up on the computer (testbook?) fixing it. Have you tried a hard reset of the truck? Gotta love a laptop on wheels

Not a laptop on wheels. It's a frigging network mainframe.
All the computers is the one thing I hate about my Range Rover.

Hi guy's thanks.

It unbelievable! after the sunroof got stuck the blower motor went. Just replaced the blower motor, was a easy fix now working like a charm.
Ok i will replace the switch see wat happens.

tried to convince my wife to rade it in. She went nuts, trade in the defender was her comment

Them's fighting words.
The bike and the Rover were here before my wife.
Now she's gone. But the bike is still here and now I have two Rovers.

You might want to test the switch before you replace it? I'd hope that's still possible on an LR3.... Unless of course the "switch" ends up being a computer on its own....

Now that the truth is out, having done some previous repairs, it's possible a wire is unplugged.
If the switch checks out, follow the wiring.
