Moonroof

The moonroof can be opened or closed


The moonroof can be opened or closed electrically only when the ignition is switched ON.

WARNING:
Do not let passengers stand up or extend part of their body through the open moonroof while the vehicle is moving:
Extending the head, arms, or other parts of the body through the moonroof is dangerous. The head or arms could hit something while the vehicle is moving. This could cause serious injury or death.

Make sure the opening is clear before closing the moonroof:
A closing moonroof is dangerous. The hands, head, or even neck of a person ―especially a child― could be caught in it as it closes, causing serious injury or even death.

NOTE:
Before washing your Mazda, make sure the moonroof is completely closed so that water does not get inside the cabin area. After washing your Mazda or after it rains, wipe the water off the moonroof before operating it to avoid water penetration which could cause rust and water damage to your headliner.

Power moonroof re-set procedure

If the battery had been disconnected during vehicle maintenance or for other reasons, the moonroof may not fully open or close. The moonroof's jam-safe function does not function while the moonroof is re-setting. Carry out the following procedure to resume operation: 1. Switch the ignition ON.

2. Press the tilt switch, to partially tilt open the rear of the moonroof.

NOTE:
If the re-set procedure is performed while the moonroof is in the slide position (partially open) it closes before the rear tilts opens.

3. Repeat the procedure in Step 2. The rear of the moonroof tilts open to the fully open position, then closes a little.

Engine-off Moonroof Operation

The moonroof can be operated for about 40 seconds after the ignition is switched from ON to the ACC or LOCK with all doors closed. If any door is opened, the moonroof will be inoperable.

NOTE:
For engine-off operation of the moonroof, the switch must be pushed firmly throughout moonroof closure because the auto-closing function will be inoperable.

Opening/Closing the Moonroof from the Outside

The moonroof can be opened or closed from outside the vehicle after the doors are closed.

Refer to Opening/Closing the Power Windows and the Moonroof from the Outside.

Jam-safe Moonroof

If a person's hands, head or an object blocks the moonroof during closing operation, the moonroof will stop and open halfway.

WARNING:
Make sure nothing blocks the moonroof just before it reaches the fully closed position:
Blocking the moonroof just before it reaches the closed position is dangerous.

In this case, the jam-safe function cannot prevent the moonroof from stopping. If fingers are caught, serious injuries could occur.

NOTE:
- Depending on driving conditions, a closing moonroof could stop and start opening when the moonroof feels a shock that is similar to something blocking it.

- The moonroof's jam-safe function does not function while the moonroof is initializing.
