Question about 2002 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

The Sunroof opened on its own and won't close.How do we get it closed. It is really crazy. But the car has been under a tree for weeks and we live in florida. It has been rainey weather and the inside got moldy. So we cleaned the interior and put a Sanitizer Machine in it to run for 2 hours. Towards the end of the 2 hours my husband came in the house and ask me if I opened the sunroof. I said no I haven't touched the car. So Some how it opened it self and won't close. My Husband has worked for ford many years as a Parts & Srevice Director and has never seen anything like this. HELP! & Thank You

This vehicle sunroof can travel past its open point and gets stuck. you can lower the headliner and insert an hex key and crank the glass forward one inch then it will work again. Just don't let it go to far open or it can get stuck again. Also check the drain tray to make sure it is not out of place, if so you need new guides.

1996 Jaguar xj6 sunroof will not close you can hear motor running, how can you manual close it?


If you remove any gear that is coupling it to the motor you should be able to slide it back to where you want. I would put gear back just to hold it in place and keep it from moving. But you do have to replace that gearbox for future operation.

Just as a possible solution just to close the roof, remove the motor and try an manually pull the roof closed, if it does'nt move it could possibly be the operating rack that pulls the foor back and forth, in which case it will require dismantling the roof assembly

My sunroof won't close


Some sunroofs have a open switch like the drivers window. You push it and the window will open automaticly. The button on your sunroof could be jammed so even though you can close it as soon as you release it, it will auto open on it's own.

You must remove the electric drive motor located at the front of the sunroof under a plastic cover, then close the glass and reinstall the motor drive.

ASC Sunroof needs to be programmed


hold the vent button until the roof has "tilted" completely, then hold the open button until the roof has opened completely. the light that reads ASC should now be green and your sunroof should operate normally.

2003 Kia Sorento sunroof


open the light box under the sunroof the you will find the sunroof engine and gear .
open the tree screw end pull it a little .now pull off the sunroof check if the both side are in the same position .if not pot them in the same position you will bee able to do this because the engine is not attached .now close the tree screw .it should work .but maybe you will have to adjust the engine and the sunroof ,because the sunroof is not open until the end or the opposite .you can do this bay moving the engine when it is not attached to the right place .

1993 lincoln towncar sunroof switch


I know this is an old blog but some people may still find it helpful. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each.

Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. One should use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.

One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground.

The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.

You must hook up thhooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire)

When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and LEAVE THE ROOF WINDOW ALONE UNTIL YOU HAVE A NEW SWITCH.
e power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. once this is connected the roof should either open more or close.

To reverse the operation of the roof, simply reverse the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires they are
