I have a 2002 Thunderbird and cannot figure out how to open the power distribution box in trunk to check relay

If it is typical Ford, there are snap catches that have to be released to open the box.

I suggest you take this to the dealer ! This is a complex system with two control modules ,the front control module an rear control module , two relays in the Aux . relay box . Top up relay an top down relay . The two control modules communicate on the SCP serial data bus . If you don't know what I telling you ,best take it to someone who does . Need a Factory scan tool to check this problem out. Communications Network Information Module Cars are getting more an more electronic an with out proper training you just shouldn't try to fix them , It takes special tools an training !

Clk 230 roof

Looks like a failed relay:
"I sat in the car and started pushing the roll bar button. We heard a click every time I pushed it. My brother was at the back of the car and was trying to hear where the clicking was coming from. He realized it was coming from a relay switch so he took a screwdriver and tapped the top of the relay and **BAM** everything starts working! So through that we realized it was a bad relay".

2002 thunderbird window won't go up or down replace swith still wont work fuse are ok does the switch get power

The master switch connector does have circuits that have power on them. The Master switch is not directly connected to the window motors. The switch sends a signal to the Front Electronic Module and the module controls operation of the motor on the driver side. The passenger door window motor is controlled by a different module

My 2002 toyota sequia sun roof won't open. I hear relay click when I push button. But roof won't move. The fuse is good, I checked it and also replaced it.

It sounds like you may have a bad motor, often when a motor is weak you will hear clicking.

Good luck!
