Headlight Not Opening
« on: August 03, 2020, 01:34:15 PM »
I have a 2002 Trans Am and have a bad headlight. After I start the car up, the headlight goes down when turn off lights but wonít go up. Lights all work just wonít go up. Just thinking should change motor. Any suggestions if something else?

I am not sure if itís the same as my Ď88 model, but mine had a headlight module that had the relays molded inside it. I located it and would tap on it while operating the switch on and off and it would operate after I tapped on it.
I found a new module on eBay and replaced it and it has been working ever since. If this does not work, I would suggest replacing the motor.
