We just bought a stage 2 car seat( 20-40 lbs) & want to make sure its properly installed. I took it to the dealership today because I couldn't locate the tether strap anchors. However they had no idea either. They said that they could put them in but.... maybe not & encouraged me to consider buying a whole new seat. They directed me to the police station across the road because they said they couldn't just put the anchors in & that the police would know where to put the anchors. The police station however said they have nothing to do with that. It is up to the garage/manufacturor. I have tried to find the information online. One article said that 'the tether anchor brackets will not neccesarily look like the ones used for add-on anchors. Some will be short straight U shaped bars'. There is a small bar resembling this under the seats but I'm not sure if this is an anchor or if it is just part of the bar that you squeeze to remove the seats. Could you let me know if the '99 Chevy Venture come with anchor brackets ? Thanks, Bonnie

Your owner's manual should explain how to install a car seat. If not, you can go to a GM or Chevy dealer and ask for assistance. This is a mandatory safety problem they should not charge you to just assist in installing the seat.
Child seat tethers didn't start coming into play until around 2002-2003, however there are anchor kits available for about $50 from Ford Dealerships. When you call to talk to the dealer about availability, start with the service department. They can can check you Vehicle Identification Number (which is on your insurance or registration), and you may be eligible to have them installed under Ford warranty, even after 11 years!
The sunroof is powered by the same circuit breaker that power's your power window, so if your windows work than the circuit breaker should be good. You needed test the switch to verify if works with; on the factory sunroof system the roof is controled by a sunroof module the module receives a signal from the switch then throws voltage to the sunroof motor. The motor and module are located between the sunroof assembly and windshield underneath the head liner. You would reconnected the switch and test to see if the sunroof motor is getting power when the switch is in use by testing the dark green wire when closing and a light green wire when opening. Test these wires at the sunroof motor with a ohm meter or test light. Also, check this procedure to repair...
