Question about 1988 Porsche 944
I've got a 944 s 1987. When I turn the lights on they go up and come on. But when I turn them off the lights go off but thay wont go down !!!
Alright well I can help you out a little. This just happened today on my 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo so I haven't had the chance to completely solve the problem. I got them to go back down but then can't get them to go down by using the button. To get them to go back down. 1. Pop the hood. 2. Find the headlights motor. There is only one. It is located on the left hand side of the engine bay. If you are standing in front of the car. It is close to the front of the engine bay. 3. Once you have found the headlights motor take the rubber cover off of it. (if there is one. there is on my car) 4. There is a knob on the top of the headlights motor. Twist it as if to tighten it slightly. That should cause the motor to react and make them go down. It's kinda startling if you happened to stumble upon it like I did. lol. Other than that I haven't figured out anymore. I will though. My best guess would be a problem with the switch. The motor obviously works if they go up. Its just something electrical thats not communicating to the motor that you want the headlights to go down. In my case at least. Hopefully I helped. Enjoy your 944!! Best cars ever!!!
