Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car
the switch on my sunroof has quit working and naturaly the sunroof is open. my question is how do i bypass the switch to close the sunroof until i find a replacemrnt switch.
thanks for any help
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
