How to manually close the sunroof of my car?

So we will start our article with the technique to allow you to close manually your car and more precisely the sunroof or the panoramic roof of this one. Whether your battery is empty, or you have removed the battery, you will not have access to the power controls of the sunroof of your vehicle, and therefore no longer have the possibility to close it. Unfortunately, you don’t have many solutions to allow you to close them. Indeed, to manually close the sunroof of a car, there is only one solution which consists in using the manual command to close it. It is not visible without removing a plastic cover which is located in front of the sunroof. To find the exact location of this screw consult your car’s manual. It will then be sufficient to screw it on until the roof is completely closed.

How to manually close the doors of my car?

And now, we will surely move on to the part that interests you most, namely, how to manually close a vehicle, but this time we will focus on the doors of this one. Indeed, your car may have run out of battery in front of your house, you managed to open the doors and try to start it, but while waiting to find a solution you want to be sure that nobody will be able to get into it. Unfortunately, it’s pretty much the same problem as the sunroof on your car. Indeed, without power, it will be impossible to activate the door locking mechanisms. In some years, you will have a push button on the window frame that you can press manually to close your vehicle manually, but this is becoming less and less common. So we will give you as before the only two solutions to allow you to close your car without energy:

  • Buy a new battery and install it to close the doors of your car, or find one in good condition. However, you will need access to the bonnet to do so
  • Connect your car to a running car to transfer energy and recharge your vehicle’s battery. This will at least give you enough power to close the doors of your car. If you have any doubts about your battery’s ability to keep the charge. Remember to close the doors of your car while it is still connected to the other vehicle. Once you have done this, you can disconnect your battery and close the bonnet
