Sunroof ghost!?

Idk what's up, but my sunroof has been tilting and closing automatically; automatically as in I am not touching it and it'll tilt open and close spasmatically.
Not so much worried about it now, because it's summer, but I would definitely not want this happening if it were wet outside.


Is this happening to anybody else? And/or has anybody heard of this problem? Solutions?

Milk bags, this sounds like a classic case of a short circuit at the main switch that's energizing the sunroof motor. You might want to remove the overhead switch panel and see if any of the wiring is damaged/making contact with other wiring. You could also try the old battery disconnect technique to see if it's some kind of odd module fault.

VW electronics don't get "ghosts", they get gremlins.

Only thing I've notice with my sunroof is it will tilt up a little when I close it and the knob is in the middle. So I have to move the knob a notch then back to close. It's strange.
