(at tilt position). I turn the car off and it closes all the way, then starts up again opening and closing. I tried the
"car reboot" procedure by disconnecting the 12 v battery, but when I hook it up again it keeps going.
Same identical thing here. Cleaned the inside. Now the display just keeps opening and closing when the car is Off. Works fine when the car in On. I never opened the display just wiped down the screen. I'm thinking some issue with moisture on the display.
Disconnecting the 12v didn't work. Since disconnecting didn't work twice, my guess is that the person who thought disconnecting the 12v worked just happened to waited long enough so the cycling resolved itself and that disconnecting the battery didn't actually do anything.
I ran it through the car wash earlier today, that's another possibility, but the cycling started a few minutes after wiping down the interior. It's not harming anything but I was worried about the 12v battery running down, so I just put tape across the Open/Close button. That stopped it.
UPDATE: After reading this thread I decided that the problem would probably resolve itself so I took off the tap. Viola, no more cycling. My conclusion is that the screen doesn't like moisture, which kicks on the Open/Close cycling, and if you just let it cycle on and off for an hour or so everything goes back to normal.
