2001 SL2
2004 VUE 3.5L
Default 2001 Saturn SL2 - sunroof compatibility?

I have 2001 saturn sl2

and I replaced sunroof frame from 1996 saturn sl from a junk yard

and motor I don't remember but I believe it motor was from year after 1996 car.

Now after putting frame and motor (they are from two separate saturns)
it does not move ...it engages but very slight movement in the rails...but neither vent position or open postion

1. could it be incompatible motor and frame problem?
2. could be some jamming in rail passages so even though motor is trying ...things cant move because of some sort of blockage?
3. Do I need to reset motor? if yes what is the procedure?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Did you test the sunroof module before you installed it? I like to test them when they're still in the car with a cordless tool battery. I've never found one that worked and I would guess your module has broken parts. These sunroof parts are garbage and do not last. Your best bet is to close it and pull the sunroof fuse and consider it a moonroof.

Question Re: 2001 Saturn SL2 - sunroof compatibility?

so when ever you have found used ones ....none of them were good?

I will check with cordless battery.



I understand you said parts might be broken...but do you think battery needs to reset or something?

also do you think battery could be incompatible with module?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
