My 2000 sport has a sunroof that closes when I turn off the car. When its nice out i want to leave it open. Is there a way to change this auto-close feature? I don't mind cutting some wires or splicing stuff.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm? i didn't think the OEM setup would do that (I know my car doesn't do that). Anyway, I had an aftermarket alarm in a past car that closed all the windows when the alarm armed.

I think he has an aftermarket sunroof; IIRC, the sunroof option wasn't available in MY 2000. I remember being really bummed when I had my Forester 2000 S and the sunroof option came out the next MY.

Or, the OP may have a Canadian model Forester, judging by his location.

It has to be something aftermarket. No Subaru OEM moonroofs close automatically that I know of and like what was said above, the moonroof didn't come in the Forester until MY01.

IIRC there have been horror stories where a sunroof was left open & the extensive (expensive) cleanup that was required after a surprise rain. :icon_eek:

I don't have an alarm and the sunroof looks stock. No name brands anywhere and looks really good. Does the my00 even come with an alarm? I have a keyfob but nothing beeps or honks with it.

Do us a favor, take some pictures of the sunroof, both inside and out. I'm certain the sunroof didn't come out until 2001; I had a late build 2000 and the option of a sunroof was not available.
