Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar

3 Answers

Sunroof I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar. I was working last night as a delivery driver and had on of those signs with the name of the business. I was really hot and without thinking, opened my sun roof. It went up and then back and then got stuck. I closed it quickly and later when I tried to open it it lifted up and then wouldn't move. Now I'm stuck with a half open sun roof and the controls don't move the sunroof either way. My dad and I checked the fuse and it is in perfect working condition. Is there anything else that I can do to get the sunroof working again because rain has been on and off lately and I'm afraid to leave my car anywhere even for a few minutes. Please Help. Thank You.

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.

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

2001 mercury cougar want start


Try pulling your inline fuel filter, just in front of the passenger rear tire area. Turn on the key to power and see if any gas is getting through. If not contact the Ford dealer in your area to get it serviced for the Fuel Delivery Module Recall. It clogs and will suddenly make the car not start, mine just did this a couple months ago.

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
