1999 SL2 Saturn. New moonroof installed 2 years ago, barely used, will not open now. Motor works, cables attached, assembly moves 1/2 inch when switch is on to open. Glass was removed, still won't open. It acts like it wants to, but wont pop up and open. Whole assembly was new and installed at a Saturn dealer. Any advise will be helpfull T.Y.
The original roof parts were likely plastic and had a tendency to crack. I recently replaced the tracking (sunroofdoctor.com) in my daughters 1997 and it was simple but not easy; but works great. Sunroofdoctor sells rebuilt "modules" with the plastic parts replaced with aluminum parts. About $360 after 'rebate'. Good luck.

Have you checked whether it is on model?,does your vehicle can communicate with the variable sensors of the new engine? are the crank and cam shaft sensors the same on serial number or are different? Does the injection system gets the correct fuel pressure or is not sufficient.

Get a replacement parking brake lever on ebay or at a local junkyard. 92-99 SL1 & SL2 all the same part. Most likely your cables are corroded and frozen so be prepared to get some new cables at a parts store when you go to install your replacement brake lever.
Could be a starter failing, but more likely a faulty negative battery cable or starter cable connection. Look for corrosion or looseness at the cables. On GM starters, corrosion on solenoid terminals on the starter can often cause these symptoms. On most vehicles over 10 yrs. old, replacing the neg. batt. cable will save many headaches.
I have the same car and had the same problem, when you pull down the head liner you will find the motor for the moon roof. i disconnected the motor so that i could analyze it. i found that the gears in the moon roof motor are made of plastic and most of the gear teeth were chewed off. i disconnected the wireing harness from the motor and left it unplugged, i then pushed the moon roof back into position and tightened the screws to the moon roof. That is the way i left it for the past 2 years, because i was not about to spend the money t fix the motor.
try getting a new fly wheel installed in your car because it soulds like you have a few ground down spots on it. my buddies saturn had this problem with the starter and he had to change the flywheel and it has worked ever since and that was 2 years ago.
remove the bracket..starter motors are going to a brushless motor in which makes them smaller. just make sure the bolt holes are the same on the housing if they are go ahead remove it, and install the starter.
the only thing i can sujest is to pay attention if this happend at the same area if it does happend at same location or close to it there might be a cb radio interference with your car in other words some one using radio comunications will afect the elctronic system of your car again if this happend at same location try to contact the comunication agencies and report it
