Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

The motor mounting screws backed out completely and the motor eventually ripped from the wiring, as it must have sailed back and forth above my headliner. I cleaned up the wires and soldered them into the correct placement in the plug, I believe, but when I plug it in, nothing happens when I operate the sunroof button.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A FUSE SOMEWHERE FOR THE DAMNED THING?



Here's the wiring as we figured it (6 & 7 are backwards though):

THANKS ALL!

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

Here is the fuse chart and a photo of the fuse block (ignore the yelow arrow). It doesn't make sense where the block of four fuses with the damn sunroof fuse (#21) is?!

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

Not a bad idea to check the relays. i'll swap them around and test that out. i think I tried it a long time ago, but I'll do that first. I think they're a bitch to get out

Finally found something that looks promising: http://www.evolutionm.net/forums/evo...roof-fuse.html

"Fuse 21 is in an add on holder made of black plastic, lower left side of junction block, containing a 20 amp fuse."

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

Just like I said in the SB. Follow the wires from the main fuse block, the square plug on the lower left, follow that to the add-on fuse block.

Shit, I think you might be right. I need to go look at my car. I wonder if it is hidden behind a bundle of wires.

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

Its right there.

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

Does it go to the right slot or the left slot?

I know you said right, but is it the left?

Re: Help - Evo 8 Sunroof Motor

I told you an hour ago, to follow the black wire coming from the square plug, from the bottom left of the main block. Follow the wire DOWN AND BEHIND to the black, add-on fuse block.

I hope your sunroof still doesn't work when you put in a fuse.
