2002 Mazda Protege5 Mod - Sunroof Always On

If you already did the mod for your power windows, located here, then you may have noticed that it does not allow your sunroof to operate without the key in the ignition. This mod shows you how to wire up the sunroof to operate at all times, just like the windows. I did not discover this on my own, all credit goes to Zap Wizard @ zapwizard.com, however, I altered a few steps, and as it is not available on Instructables, I am posting it here.

**DISCLAIMER** - At this point, I am sure any warranties on 2002 Proteges are no longer valid, however, you still do this modification at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damage caused, injuries incurred, or contracts violated by performing this modification. That being said, this is a fairly easy process, with almost no risk involved, but you are solely responsible for anything that happens by following these instructions.

This mod is not quite as easy as the power windows modification. In that mod, we simply connected the power windows to direct power from the battery instead of going through the ignition. The concept for this mod is the same, but the process is different. This time, wires will be cut and reconnected, and we will add a fuse outside the car's fuse box.

For this mod, you will need a few extra pieces:
- Wire cutter/stripper
- Soldering iron + solder (if you want a more permanent setup)
- 1-3 wire tap-in clamps, depending on what you choose to solder
- Electrical tape

Thanks guy,, I did both mods to my P5 took me about 2 hours, easy to follow instructions, and they both worked great,, any more P5 mods in the pipeline? A one button all windows close would be good, or a engine kill switch. Anyway thanks again for all the work you must have put in to those mods. tel
