I love my ford edge. I opened the sunroof all the way and have issue closing. It starts to close then stalls. Note - The shades close all the way

Guessing you meant to ask a question and that question would be......how do I fix this?

Take a look at this YouTube video.  I did 'most' of what's shown (didn't actually remove the glass) and it worked out well.

Cheers!

Good day to all,

I haven’t had that issue yet, but has anyone had their moveable sunroof break? I was driving the interstate and heard, what I thought was a large rock hit the sunroof. When I inspected it, sure enough, there was a large crack overhead.

Not to start a “conspiracy theory”, but I have been reading of cracking or exploding large sunroofs, primarily on Kia and Hyundai vehicles, amongst others. The Ford Edge with “panoramic” sunroofs were also mentioned. 

I believe it was an article in one Consumer Reports article “Exploding Sunroofs: Danger Overhead”.

Its a very informative read with a few YouTube articles also.

Mine broke because of a rock that got kicked up, but didn’t shatter because it was laminated. When I went to the shop the insurance company was steered to. I looked at it before installation. As it turned out it was a Pilkington glass sunroof with a Ford logo and to make matters worse, it was tempered and not a laminated one. I didn’t accept the explanation the sunroof company gave me and they said Ford reengineered their sunroofs. I went to the Ford dealership to look what they are putting in the new ST,, and guess what, it was a Pilkington with a Ford logo that was tempered. I called Carlite and they are going to get back with me. In the meantime, I’ll just keep it taped with clear Gorilla tape. Consumer reports recommends laminate over tempered, I guess for obvious reasons.

Will I still buy another Ford with a panoramic roof. Of course, I love that feeling of having a convertible without the noise which sometimes comes along with one.

I simply cannot open my vista roof now.  Lucky it is stuck closed.  Does anyone know what to do to get it open?  It doesn't even make a sound.  I am wondering if a fuse if blown.

It's certainly better to be stuck closed than open.  Is the interior panel sliding or is it non operative too?  If both have failed then, yep, probably the fuse.  You should always check that first anyway as the easiest solution is often the best solution. 

 

Cheers!

The interior panel doesn't slide either.  BTW it is a 2016 Edge Sport.
