Default A few recent problemos with my '88.

Guys -
Problemo Uno:
The other day, just after i jumped out of my 88 900t, i shut the door, stuck the key into the door lock and went to lock it just like i do every time i get out of the car. Only this time it was different. The key went in just fine, just like always, but when i turned the key nothing happened. No click. The key just turns and nothing happens with the lock on the other side of the window!
Any ideas or suggestions?

Problemo Dos:
Then, about a week ago, i opened up the electric sunroof to soak in the early spring sunshine. Not even 10 minutes later, when i went to close it -- NOTHING.
I hit the button to close it and its just frozen (not literally). I try both windows and they both work, eliminating the possibility of it being the fuse. So, i'm stuck. I have no choice but to leave it open. Then later in the day, i hop in and push the close button on the sunroof and BAM -- it works. The sunroof closes just as it always had. It hasnt given me a problem since. Strange eh?

Problem 1 sounds to me like the lock linkage came apart. Possibly the last time you closed the door.

Remove the door panel and see what came apart. It's been a while since I had to mess with my locks but, iirc a few of the joints simply snap together.

Default Too much sun...

With the sunroof, my previous 900 had a problem that the electric switch only worked closing it sometimes. Always opened fine. It was a fault in the switch - ie not maing a connection on one side. Fixed it by opening up the switch and bending the connection plate a little. Much easier just to get a replacement switch. Good luck!
