The roof opening panel is an electronically operated glass panel that can be opened, closed or tilted (vent position) by the roof opening panel control switch, the shield switch, and the vent switch. Actuating the switches supplies a signal to the roof opening panel glass and shield motor/module. The front sliding glass panel and the shield use two integrated motors/modules that are serviced as assemblies. The roof opening panel and shield has one-touch open and one-touch close features that are activated when the switch is pressed and immediately released (less than 0.5 seconds) on the open or close side of the switch. For manual control holding the switch depressed for more than 0.5 seconds will cancel one-touch operation and the sliding glass panel or shield will stop when the switch is released.

Additionally there is a roof opening panel fixed glass panel behind the sliding glass panel. The roof opening panel fixed glass is attached with 6 screws and can be aligned.

    Traction Control

    How Does Traction Control Work

    If your vehicle begins to slide, the system applies the brakes to individual wheels and, when needed, reduces power at the same time. If the wheels spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces, the system reduces power in order to increase traction.
