Change it with a Post-98 and it will work fine now.





can always try one out of the back door to see if it works ... or just run a power wire to the other terminal

Well, I just realized the one I have in there now is the post 98. The one I took a pic of is the pre that Kev gave me. It's still not working.

Todd...See if the switch works in one of the doors. Quite a few of the switches we grabbed from the junkyard didnt light up.

As far as the moonroof for the original poster, since you have a SE, I'll bet $1.50 it's aftermarket.

Theres a way to program the buttons to set which buttons open and close it. Griselda has a Moonroof just like yours on the Focus, I'll check out the manual for it this weekend....

I previously owned a 1999 SE Sport with a factory power moonroof. I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that the car's moonroof didn't close after the car was turned off. So there are two possibilities. One is that your moonroof is aftermarket. Two is sometimes Ford gets random parts and things like that happen. My grandma had 2 different 1997 Lincoln Continentals that were built 1 month apart. The one built in January had a one touch open factory sunroof. It didn't one touch or auto close. The one built in March also had a factory sunroof. It had one touch open, one touch close, and it closed the roof after ignition off. Another 1997 we test drove with a factory sunroof built in June worked the same way as the one my grandmother had that was built in January.

Take a pic of the buttons or describe them, I betcha that $1.50 it's aftermarket.

I know the MI guys won't take my bets, cause I'll take thier lunch money again!!!

Uh...there's an ASC button on the left of mine that illuminates red when its "active" and isnt illuminated and "inactive" when it isnt. When its red and "active" it keeps the moonroof open or whatever position you have it in when the car is on or off. When it isnt illuminated and "inactive" it will close the moonroof from whatever position it is in when the car is turned off. I dont know if that helps or if that was the first thing looked at and not worth mentioning. Just throwing in what little I know.
