My 2015 has just started doing the MySky bounce-back. I accidentally fatfingered it shut by pulling/holding the close button. My car has a bad weather strip on the front, might be the cause of it.

When it's in the closed position, hold down the handle for a few seconds until you hear it click. That resets it.

I've also manually closed mine once stuck open and that seemed to fix the issue.

In the ceiling liner there is a small circular plug. It is in the middle of the back seat straight up. Pop this out and then use the tool in the roadside kit or you can buy a multi tool that has the right size. I'm unsure of the size off the top of my head. I've not had any issues with it after doing this when I made this post originally. Though I would also take this back to the dealer and work that warranty to the very last mile.

Renegade MySky Won't Close

Difficult to find this thread using "Search" or even using Google, so I'm gonna start by throwing in a bunch of search terms.

Renegade MySky My Sky Won't Close Stuck Stopped Working Power Sunroof Broken Reset Re-initialization


Anyways, I was searching online for a way to reset the powered MySky sunroof panel on my 2016 Jeep Renegade after it became stuck in the open position. I Googled and Googled and Googled but came up with nothing. Then a light bulb went off in my head and I started Googling using all the same search terms as before but this time I replaced "Jeep Renegade" with "Fiat 500X". Almost immediately I found the answer!

If yours is stuck open, pull down on the "CLOSE" button and keep pulling it down. Might take 30 seconds or longer of constant pressure but then the panel will start to close 2 or 3 inches at a time. Don't take your finger off the button! Keep pulling down on the button and the MySky will finally close all the way and seat itself. That's it! Reset procedure complete.

And since this is my 1st post (joined the Forum this morning specifically to search for this issue) I might as well throw in a pic. Here's me and my Trailhawk leaving on a 1500-mile trip to Utah to go play on the slickrock ---->

NO PICS ALLOWED

LOL. The forum won't let a new member post pictures. That's pretty funny. What a great rule! I suppose we must protect the forum from whatever nasty picture the new guy was going to post.
:laugh:

Anyway, I hope this post helps somebody somewhere sometime in the future.
You have been a tremendous help!! - quote to repair my sunroof was 2k for parts and 2k for labor - you saved me! I fixed mine by pulling the switch down while driving down the road - the sunroof closed in 4 or 5 stages - inching its' way towards the closed position - I am very very thankful for your post !!!

Tried holding it down for 30 seconds and it did close. Thought this would reset it but it didn't as it wouldn't close after I opened it again. Had to force close it using muscle. Nothing in the way of the sensor and the rails seem clear, clean and lubricated. Maybe the mysky motor is tired and needs to be replaced. Jeep has 40,000 miles so maybe it's about time but still seems to early. Guess I'll be taking it to the dealer.

W E L C O M E ! ! ! to the forum.

Check the owners manual, there is a small cap in the headliner behind the rear MySky panel. You can place a tool ('L' shape, should be in the vehicle's tool bag) through the headliner and crank the MySky sun roof closed.
