2002 cougar sunroof parts/repair help

I have an '02 cougar. The sunroof wouldn't close after using it successfully for years. Brought it to a pro, he said it was the relay forthe sunroof. Easy to fix he says, but we can't find the replacement parts. Please, help me. Mercury doesn't have these anymore either. Does anyone know where to get cougar sunroof relays?

There is no relay in the roof assembly, just the motor. So, heck the fuse #21 on the fuse panel. Your owner manual will tell you location.

ALso, you can use a wrench, torx bit or hex wrench to close the roof in an emergency. It's on the motor. Your owner manual will tell you how to close it.

check fuse #21, 40 amp.

check switch

check motor

YOUR RANGE SENSOR IS BAD! IT WILL BE A BLACK BOX LOCATED ON TOP OF THE TRANSMISSION! THERE WILL BE A NUT ON TOP OF IT, AND A PLUG GOING INTO THE SIDE OF IT! IT TELLS THE COMPUTER WHAT GEAR YOUR IN, SO THE COMPUTER CAN COMPENSATE FOR THE SPEED AND TELL THE TRANSMISSION TO SHIFT!

2002 volvo s80 sun roof does not close correctly


After getting advise from Tech, I fixed my sunroof within 30 mins.

Of course, you will need Torx Screw Driver. If you plan to do any fixing with your Volvo, you should have a set of these available.

Symtoms, my sunroof makes noise and the sunroof looks lower than it should be. FYI, if you hear noise when driving on uneven roads, you should check for sunroof noise. You can probably hear it when you close your door, make sure the cover is opened so you can hear it.

There are 2 metal support bars GLUED to the front and back of your sunroof GLASS. When these get partially loose, they rattle against the glass and make noise. The is a known issue, I suggest you check yours to make sure one day it doesn't fall completely off when you open your sunroof and hit you or fall off in the back of your roof to cause expensive repair.

Solution for Noise: You can rip these bars off and put it away. (FYI, I ripped the front one off mine, but will attempt to glue it back when I have time. I will report back if I can successfully glue it.) They are there for additional support to your glass. I wouldn't feel comfortable if I have to rip both of them out. Your calls. I would blame it on bad design, but they are there for a good reason.

Sunroof Lowered or Loose: When you looked at the top of your roof, the sunroof should be somewhat leveled to the roof, mine wasn't. There are 2 torxes screws on each SIDE of your sunroof that hold the glass in place. You won't see it until you remove the shield from it. When looking at it, you will see the folded shield, they are held in place by 3 clips (you can't see them) against the glass at 2 both ends and 1in the middle. Use what ever you can to pull the very top out from the clip locations (I used my fingers, but you can use a hair tweezer or something like that). You only need to pull out the top part against the glass and not the whole thing. Then you can fold that piece toward you and you will see the screws. It's easier if you lift up (open up)your sunroof to remove this shield. But you have to close it to tighten the screws since that's the only way you can tell if it's level or not. It would help if you have someone standing outside telling you the level (I had to get in and out of the car many times to eye it). Afterward, just push the shield back into place.

This is a detail instruction, so you will know what I'm talking about when you actually doing it. Save some money, do it yourself. Hope it helps! For more information

I have a 02 Mercury cougar the emergency flashers flash and the horn sounds at anytime, doors lock, unlock,engine running, not running. Raining ,sunshine . help


Check the power and ground connections that operate the computers on your car. This sounds more like an intermittent connection of some sort rather than an actually broken part.
