Default question

Tech whats going on when you red line it? I did it by accident, nothing happened, but like what kinds of damage am i doing to the car by doin that?(farthest I've gone is a little unde 7,000 rpms totally by accident)? I just like using the tiptronic lol

second question, the range on my remote doesnt seem like very far, but im postive that the battery in the remote is still good, is there anything to do about that?

1. Don't keep redlining it or you will damage the engine.

2. Buy a new remote.

I noticed today that the sunroof in my car is not working correctly... When You want the sunroof to open up, it will only create an opening of 1/2 inch(use to be a lot more).... Also when looking at it from the outside, after closing it completely, instead of it being flat and flush lookin it dips in... So when closed completely, it will be dipped inward and let air into the car...

The screws might have come loose.
Can you push the glass up?

Try locking and unlocking the car and see if they start working.

Unhook the PLastic pieces on the sides with the glass tilted up if you can get it to tilt up.
Pull the top of the plastic towards the middle of the car.
Then check and see if the screws are loose.

All the screws are tight?

Does it seem like the glass is real wobbily?

I brought mine in, They told me that it was the brains of the module, or motor that was malfunctioning, so they reinstalled the software and it worked fine..
