Moonroof

The moonroof can be opened or closed


The moonroof can be opened or closed electrically only when the ignition switch is in the ON position.

WARNING:
Do not let passengers stand up or extend part of the 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:
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. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

2. Press the rear of 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 switch is turned from the ON position to the ACC or LOCK position 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 Outside

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

WARNING:
Make sure the opening is clear before closing the moonroof:
Closing the moonroof is dangerous. A person's hands, head, or even neck could be caught by the moonroof and result in serious injury or even death.

This warning applies especially to children and pets.

NOTE:
- The moonroof cannot be opened or closed from outside the vehicle under the following condition:
 - A door or the liftgate is opened.

 - The key is inserted into the ignition switch.

 - (With advanced key).

The start knob is pushed into the ignition switch.

- The moonroof may not close completely.

Make sure the moonroof is closed.

If the moonroof cannot be closed completely, operate moonroof tilt/slide switch from inside the vehicle.

After closing the moonroof outside the vehicle, verify that it is completely closed.

Opening

Because nobody likes getting into a very hot car, Mazda has introduced a way to open the two front windows and the moonroof as you approach the vehicle to get the air moving before you get in.

WARNING:
Use the auto-moonroof function only when you can see the vehicle and it is in a secure area:
Do not let children play with your keys. If they open the moonroof without your knowing, the open moonroof is an even bigger invitation to a thief than leaving the doors unlocked.

The moonroof can be opened for ventilating the cabin before getting in the vehicle.

With unlock button (Keyless entry system)

Press once, then press again within 1.5 seconds and hold.

After the doors and the liftgate are unlocked, the two front windows and the moonroof open as long as the unlock button is pressed.

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.
