Re: new guy here!!! i need help!!!

Off topic, have you got your keyboard back yet? That was forever ago!

Kwiklude; can't help you with your sunroof motor, but you need to torque down your battery terminals. The rings cannot be loose or battery not fastened in the tray. I've had two separate cars of mine do the cluster thing, and even the alternator-supercharger whistle when my positive was loose. My friends RX-8 kept dying at the street lights cause of the same problem. The problem was the bolt he had was stripped so he could not torque it down, preowned FTL, car stalled all the way to autozone.

The definition of tight is you have zero play when your terminal contacts with the battery post. About 15-25lbs of torque, one twist more than hand tight. And bolt down the battery. All this "play" is bad and definitely overlooked. And mechanics will never find it, most plug in the scanner while the car is idle and never check the battery, stay stumped and like said above, "guess."

If it's not the problem, know when you do this you will eliminate this future problem. Hope this helps.
