Description of the reversing problem

If you try to close your sunroof while traveling at highway speed, you may notice that it will automatically reverse itself when it reaches the deflector. To operate properly, it must push the air deflector down before fully closing the sunroof. However, at highway speeds the air deflector has wind resistance pushing against it, making it more difficult to push down. It’s this additional effort that causes the motor to think it’s hit an obstruction, causing it to reverse.

Fix for reversing issue

GM has updated the motor and software to correct this problem. The new part is: ACDelco 23241866 GM Original Equipment Motor
