Exclamation [Newcomer] '02 Ford Focus SE (Sunroof issue; Video enclosed)

Hello Focus Fanatics! Newcomer here as the title reads. I'm currently running a Ford Focus '02 SE and ran into a little issue with my sunroof. Doesn't want to rise, lower or even open fully! Better explain my issue. I've uploaded a video so you'll see first hand what "may" be causing the issue!

Appreciate the help!

Nice video. Seems obvious to me that your sunroof switch is accidentally connected to your outboard 5.56 cal machine gun. Try hitting the controls for the machine gun, and see if those control the sunroof.

Other than that, sorry I can't help you, mostly because I do not have a sunroof or a machine gun installed on my Focus.

Took me a little while to get it attach correctly with full functioning abilities.

Eh, no big rush. I'm not getting wet nor anything. Still a few months left of summer.

Well that was a shot in the dark. I guess Ford Fanatics isn't as active as I thought it'd be.

I would try dropping the head liner to see if you can see if it's off track, you might be able to realign it. You should get a friend to give a little push down to put it back on track. If anything else hopefully it will close it.


Welcome to the forums BTW, the forums usually aren't as active during the wee hours of darkness. Me and a few others are all there really is.

Thanks Glass. I'll poke around with the headliner and see if I can find a resolution to the issue. It being fully closed is just as good. Not a sunroof individual or less it comes to T-Tops. ;)

I couldn't understand what this initially meant, until I heard the video, and then kept laughing uncontrollably!

These forums are pretty damn active. Not everyone has an answer.
Of all the hundreds of real views: Not everybody bothers to reply (which I don't quite understand why).

Maybe people don't want to come off as being "dumb..." If I keep with that thought: This'll turn into a philosophical debate. So anyway!

I'm sure someone here (not me) will have an answer for you, at some point.
Hope you get it fixed! If not: Get someone who's never been in your car, and yell out, "FIRE!" And hit that button... or just drive through the bad part of town and calmly talk and hit that button then swerve violently and go, "HOLY SHIT! DID YOU SEE THAT GUY FIRE AT US?!" And take off like a jack rabbit!!!
