Default Saturn sky convertible top lock

Hey, so I went and did it.
Bought myself a Saturn Sky with 53k 2007 2.4l manual
its everything I've ever wanted.
However there are a couple of problems, and theyre horrible.

Firstly the lock on the convertible top.
The dumb dumb who drove it last busted the lock somehow, either way the top popped up, however it didnt bust the convertible top, it just broke the locking mechanism, I've read about people where the hook doesnt align so you have to bend it back but this is like once the hook is engaged nothing stops it from disengaging thus the roof wants to pop up once you hit about 40.
I have it bungied down but id like to order a new lock? or if anyone knows a fix that will get rid of my bungie mess.
secondly, the passenger (thank god) power window is busted, motor clicks and whirs but window doesnt move, peeked inside the door (love the room) window seemed to be on track as the mechanism pulled up with the window, but it doesnt hold weight. Plan to order a new regulator and thatll be that.
Either way any advice on either to top latch or the power window replacement is much appreciated

shes so fun
and silver

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Haha
So i was out having fun and managed to somehow pop a p0606
I havent done a soft reset, but the car is having alot of trouble in first and I have reduced power.
I was reading some other threads that address the issue but none of them seemed to resolve the problem entirely, most just said take to dealer, which in 2016 is not an option haha.
I could take it to GM but fug that.
I have an uncle that has a fancy computer for cars that im sure could reprogram the ecm if necessary, I don't really want to replace the unit if i can avoid it.
any advice on these issues would awesome, and thanks

So i guess as a bump.
Was driving along and the engine disabled itself.
That was real fun loosing power steering and having the car **** it's self on a nice date.
I pulled the bat and waited, she started back up just fine.
However right before the engine decided it didn't want to do anymore, it was lurching really bad.
Anyone? Opinions?

rough having problems with a car you just bought. if u can find the right gm dealer they can do wonders. the wrong dealer can be a dissaster. skys were beautiful cars. too bad they were so short lived. 07 was a long model year. as the first year they came out at the beginning of 2006. lots of running changes as the 2007s were built. when was yours built? i remember the first few months of them the plastic on the rear fender wells was too close to the tires and they would rub. our dealer had a 1 year waiting list for skys. we couldnt get enough for all the customers.

Haha i may have made it sound worse than I intended.
But to be honest, I was expecting there to be at least one thing wrong with the car when i bought it, aside from the top lock/power window, which is cosmetic and while annoying, i just don't see it as a problem.
This P0606 is the first problem im trying to sort out, and the best part is the light has been popping on and off, I have no idea what sets it off, but sometimes it's there and sometimes it isn't.
I'm trying not to put miles on it but i just bought a saturn sky, im sure people that own them know how tempting a date can be
I haven't been able to make much progress on it, as work gets in the way of everything.
But thanks for the info, if all else fails, ill just take my next paycheck to GM and see whatsup, I just don't want to pay someone 500$ if i can fix the problem myself (like the lock/window)

p.s. I was also doing some searching on Saturn/GMs old security systems messing with the car, so it's possible it could be that, since it doesn't have a FOB anymore, and i assume it's keys have been remade since.

alot of security key problems ive seen on gm are the old passlock cars which was a joke and useless system. havnt heard of any problems with passkey or your passkey plus immobilizer keys. acturlly none.never heard of a problem.

I was reading through random threads about it so it probably doesnt apply to me
I'm just considering what it could be, but if the security is only for keyless entry then i guess i dodged a bullet haha
On that note is progranming a FoB hard for a sky?
cause it would also be nice to have one haha
Thanks for the reply.
