2002 SC2
Wrench Sun Roof Doesn't Work

I bought my 2002 Saturn SC2 a few years ago and the sunroof has never worked. Where would be a good place to get it checked out and how expensive do you think it might be to get it fixed? I've always wanted a car with a sunroof and now that I have one, it mocks me by not working! Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Everyone, please vote in the poll. I'm really interested in how much money people think would be worth spending to fix it.

It is clearly a preference thing.
I fixed mine with a used module from the wreckers, which I paid $50 for. It included everything, switch, glass, the whole 9.

I do like sunroofs though and I use mine all the time.

I just fixed mine by taking the module apart and re-soldering all the relay pins. The joint were all bad and it looks like a quality issue from the factory.

Default Re: Sun Roof Doesn't Work

A few years ago, the plastic guides in my sunroof broke. I bought and installed the aluminum guides found at http://www.sunroofdoctor.com/.

If the motor is trying to work but doesn't, it is probably a broken guide.

Default Re: Sun Roof Doesn't Work

What's wrong with it? When my sunroof "broke" a couple years ago, it turned out to be a very simple fix. A pin had backed out of one of those flipper things. I removed the glass panel, put the pin back in and it's been working ever since.

I would have fixed it even if it was the motor or something else, whatever the cost. I'm not one to enjoy having stuff that doesn't work. But, I ordered my car with the roof, so I clearly wanted it. If it was a used car which I'd inherited, it might be a different story.
