Does anyone know how to hot wire a sunroof switch at a pick and pull?
Cars there don't have a battery, so I will have to bring one.

Cars there don't have keys, so I need to power up the swith directly from an external source (battery).

I have never used the mechanical tool to slide the sunroof back so I have no clue on how to do this mechanically either.

Does anyone have a detailed explaination on hot wiring the sunroof?

I'd imagine if you grounded your battery to the chassis and attached the positive end to the appropriate fuse, the switch should function normally. This is just a theory though.

Undo the sunroff wiring at the overhead panel switch, and bring a battery charging box to the yard with you. You should be able to touch the leads from the switch to the battery box, assuming that the fuse is in place and the circuit is otherwise operational.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking, just wasn't sure which pin was hot, but my instink tells me a red one or one with a red stripe :) I cranked it back manually at the trunk.
