02 Explorer Sport Trac
Hey what's up guys, new member here. I have a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT that I have owned about 10 months now. The Sunroof has never worked since I bought it but now I decided that I want to fix it. All fuses are good and all windows function just fine. I pulled the console down and noticed there is no power at the switch and there are some wires cut. I was hoping someone could help me identify the cut wires so I can get this fixed.


Update: I was able to rewire in the new motor and a new pigtail. The motor seems to be fully functioning but once installed the roof only goes forward and backward a few inches. It doesn't fully open

Like like they were cut and taped. You probably have a bigger issue than the wiring.

It looks like the person cut the Sunroof motor pigtail

If I had a picture of it I can resolder them back in

And then you will probably have to fix the original problem.
