Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

I have a 2001 mercury cougar and as I was driving home I tried to open my sunroof. It had just started to raise and it stopped moving all together and it won't close or open now. Is it fuse related or motor? I don't hear the motor trying to work when I try to open it so I have no idea what it is.

I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar. It throws code p1780. I have replaced the Neutral Safety switch and still throwing the same code.

The overdrive button is different than a neutral start switch. Your problem could be underneath the car where the transmission wires plug in.

Okay my horn will not work and my sunroof.I am about to purchase one for 3,400 and it is a 2001 ZN,do you know how many were made.I heard 500

As for the horn and sunroof not working, both could be on the same circuit. Check fuses first. I really do not know how many were built-sorry

How do you take off the sunroof of a 1986 944 porsche turbo?

Turn ignition on, make the sunroof go up and all the way down, turn off ignition and press the sunroof button to go down. Then unclip the 2 front hooks and push up.

2002 cougar sunroof parts/repair help

there is no relay in the roof assembly, just the motor. So, heck the fuse #21 on the fuse panel. Your owner manual will tell you location.

ALso, you can use a wrench, torx bit or hex wrench to close the roof in an emergency. It's on the motor. Your owner manual will tell you how to close it.

check fuse #21, 40 amp.

check switch

check motor

The sun roof has nylon gears that pulls the roof back and forward when activated. There is one on both sides of the sunroof track in the rear corners of the roof track housing. Unfortunately they are not replaceable by themselves and must be purchased as a unit for the whole roof track system. The cost of the replacement and labor to have it installed (if you can find someone to do it) is up to $1500 so isn't very practical to replace based on the value of the car itself. Better off to just work the broken piece out and manually put roof back in place in shut position and not use anymore, at least that was my experience with the one my daughter owns.
