Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique
Hi, my sunroof stopped working on my 1996 Mercury Mystique. I checked the fuses but there are no fuses for the sunroof. I did find a green wire hanging unplugged. The end looks like it plugs in somewhere but I don't know where. I traced the green wire up the side of the car to the roof over to the sunroof. So I assume the sunroof is not working because it is not grounded. I dont know where it plugs into any ideas?
In all sun roofs on most vehicles there is a motor that operates the unit. now green wire can indicate a ground, however they can also indicate a power source like for a tail light green is used for the right turn signal circuit. to be sure use a test probe to check for voltage to that wire if it lights up it's a constant current circuit. if the light doesn't come on turn the ignition and check once more. if the light comes on than it's an auxillary circuit. if there is no fuse then there might be a relay for your sun roof circuit. check the power distribution box. your owners manual will show you exactly where that relay is located in the box under the hood. in most newer vehicles they do not use fuses for electric motors for functions in the car but a relay to protect the circuit. check all this first before connecting that green wire. if ther problem still persists then contact me again and i will help with other possiblities
