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!!!

Signals and break lights wont work, fuse keeps blowing


You have one of them funny american things where it all works backwards so this old gnarled europeon mechanic would have a direct answer like a real proper car,although i do think this is a opel frontier in my language.What i would do here is to disconnect the fancy brake light switch that these motors have and try checking the wires at the back of the vehicle ,like inside the rubber boot from boot door to the bodywork as this is 99% of the problems i get with hatchback type doors or whatever you want to call them in whatever language you call them.Our europeon vehicles have seperate lights for all three functions ,indicators stop and side lights.plus of course the obligatory reverse and fog lights

Service lights wont shut off


My first question would be - have you had the engine computer and the body computer scanned ?
The traction control and ABS are handled by a body computer and a basic code reader may not access that computer.
As you say there has to be a problem to make all three warning lights come on.

Not sure, but I've heard a bad hazard switch can cause strange problems.
Also, if your truck has a body control module that controls interior and lights, that may be your problem, too. Good luck.

The hi beams should be on the turn signal switch you should just pull it back towards you and most GM radios have to be turned off then you hold the seek or volume button down and it will start changing the time and some had a real small HOUR and MIN button that had to be pushed with a Pin .

Try to check if there is something stuck to the motor of the pop-up lights mechanism. You can see it below the fenders. The fender liner should be removed.
