Operating the Sunroof
If your IONIQ 5 has a vision roof, you can enjoy the all-glass roof by sliding open the power sunshade.
There are several prerequisites before the IONIQ 5 vision roof is ready for operation. Below are the specific criteria that must be met before operating:
- The power sunshade can be operated only when the Start/Stop button is in either the ON or START position.
- The power sunshade can be operated for approximately three minutes after the Start/Stop button is in the ACC or OFF position.
- If the front door is open, the power sunshade cannot be operated even within the three-minute period.
Once you are happy that all the above criteria are met, you are ready to operate the sunshade. See below for how to open and close the power sunshade.
Opening the power sunshade
To open the sunroof of your IONIQ 5 vision roof, follow the steps below:
- Locate the sunroof switch.
- This is above the rear-view mirror in between the passenger and drive sunshades.
- Push the switch rearward.
- The power sunshade will automatically slide open.
- To stop the movement of the sunroof at any point, push the button in any direction.
Closing the power sunshade
- To close the sunroof, push the same switch forward.
- The power sunshade will automatically close.
You can stop the power sunshade at any point by pushing the switch in any direction.
Resetting the Vision Roof
In some circumstances, resetting the power sunshade operation may need to be performed. Some instances where resetting the power sunshade may be required include:
- When the 12-volt battery is replaced, disconnected, or discharged
- When the fuse for the power sunshade is replaced
- If the power sunshade one-touch AUTO OPEN/CLOSE operation is not functioning properly
To reset the sunroof, you will need to follow the steps below:
- To reset the power sunshade, start the vehicle in P (Park).
- Ensure that the power sunshade is fully closed.
- If it is open, push the switch forward to close it completely.
- Once the power sunshade is fully closed, release the switch.
- Push the switch forward again, causing the power sunshade to move slightly, then release it.
- Push and hold the switch forward once more until the power sunshade slides open and then closes again.
- Release the switch only once this operation has been completed.
If you accidentally release the switch during the operation, you will need to start the procedure again from step 2.
Safety Recommendations and Features
When driving, it is imperative to be as safe as possible. Here are some ways Hyundai suggests being as safe as possible while using the IONIQ 5 vision roof:
- You should never adjust the power sunshade while driving, as this could result in loss of control and an accident that may cause injury or property damage.
- You should never leave the vehicle running with unsupervised children. Unattended children could operate the power sunshade, which could result in injury.
The Vision Roof of your IONIQ 5 also comes with several features that are designed for safety. One of these is the automatic reverse function of the power sunshade. If the power sunshade senses any obstacle while closing automatically, it will reverse direction and stop at a particular position.
To avoid any accidents or vehicle damage, it is essential to ensure that heads, hands, arms, etc., don’t get in the way of the power sunshade. Please don’t intentionally use your body to test the automatic shut-off and reversal function. This could lead to a non-sensical injury.
Another critical feature to remember is not to push the switch after the power sunshade is fully opened or closed. This could damage the sunroof mechanism and require costly repairs.
To keep your IONIQ 5 sunroof in good condition, it’s recommended that you:
- Clean the glass panel regularly with a soft cloth and mild detergent.
- Avoid using abrasive tools or cleaning chemicals, which could scratch or damage the glass.
- You should also check the sunroof seals regularly for any signs of wear or damage. Contact a dealer to replace them if necessary.
The Vision Roof of your IONIQ 5 is a fantastic feature that can enhance your driving experience. Following the simple steps in this article, you can efficiently operate your sunroof and take advantage of its additional features.
Remember to always follow the safety precautions and maintenance tips to keep your sunroof in the best possible condition.
