The most common problem with the 1999 to 2003 Mercury Cougar sunroof is the motion mechanism breaks away from the cable that pushes and pulls the sunroof open and closed. You can tell if this is the problem with your sunroof because the sunroof motor will whir, but the sunroof stays put, or moves a fraction. This is due to a design flaw, and cannot be fixed. The parts of the sunroof are either welded or riveted together, and do not come apart for service. In short, you have to buy a whole new sunroof. The part # is F8RZ63518A30AB for the sunroof. Google it to your own dismay. Did you check to see if there is a fuse for it? Try to locate an owners manual, they are usually marked what fuses are what or pull the cover off the fuse box(es) and sometimes they are written on the back of the cover what fuse is what. There may be several fuse boxes to locate, like under the dash by where you feet are, or out in the engine compartment.

Can you manually close a 2002 mercury cougar sunroof?

Yes this happened to me on my 1999 Cougar. On the roof above the rear view mirror is your intior light. Pop it out and disconect (from the plugs) Behind it you can see the motor that controls the sunroof. You will see a circular looking end that has a small Allen key in it's center. Match the Allen key and screww counterclockwise. This may take some effort as it is very hard to turn and the space is very limited (About 1/8 of a turn each time). This will slowly bring the sunroof back down. Its a real pain. I did mine in a snow storm in the dark at -10, LOL

Why is the sunroof on 02 Liberty stuck open Any suggestions for a fix?

Surprisingly, this is an incredibly common problem with 2002 Jeep Liberty models. The most common reasons are a broken switch, a blown fuse or motor, problems with the liner seal, or a broken auto lock. If trying to close the sunroof makes any sort of noise, it is a problem with the motor. If the sunroof doesn't make any noise at all while trying to close it, it is the switch.
