Default Sunroof not working after drained battery

Short version: Sunroof won't close (really a Sunroof won't open situation)
Fix: Place sunroof selector **** in the auto setting and hold for about 30 seconds as it goes through a open and close sequence (tilt up, close, slide back, close) that should fix it.

Long Version: Car was left in the ignition on setting (two pushes of the start button with out pushing the brake pedal) Drained the battery it had 5 volts when i checked it with the volt meter. After charging the battery I went to the gym and tried to open the sunroof trying to use the auto open function (using the **** in until it starts to slide back) the sunroof moved so i let go. I notice it stopped moving so I held the **** in again. The sunroof went the tilt setting. At this point I was like WTF is happening. All I wanted to do at this point was close it. So I thought I had a problem were the sunroof would not close. I would hold the auto button and I could here the motor make noise. Thought I needed a new motor. What really happened was when I held the button in the auto setting I was running what some call it the "sync function". Kind of the same one you run when you set up your windows to work in auto again after disconnecting the battery. Well when I would release the **** it would stop the sync. So I really had a fail to open sunroof problem. After holding the sunroof **** in auto for about 30 seconds as it goes through a open and close sequence (tilt up, close, slide back, close) that should fix it. Hopes it helps.

I've gotten so much help from this site. It has save me Thousands of $$$.

Brilliant! My Sunroof would not completely close. I only use the auto button to open or close the sunroof. Suddenly, today it would start to close then just before it would reach the fully closed position it would automatically re-open. I was like WTF?!?! I looked in the gutter to see if anything was obstructing the glass.. nope... nada. I tried twisting the **** and also no luck. I remembered my trusty clublexus friends and after a quick search and 10 second hold of the auto button got me back to normal. THANKS GUYS!!! Tomorrow is going to be a rainy day and I don't know what I would have done.
