On each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

It is either the light switch or the headlight relay, I would say first go for the relay as it carries the actual load of the lights. It will not be a fuse, the headlights are fused individually.

Hi, i have no idea if this will help you or not, but, on the 1997 grand cherokee, if you look at the headlight itself, look to the outer edge, over the top ontop of the headlight there is a white allen key hole, not sure on the size, this, basically is the up and down adjuster for the headlight, sorry if it doesn't help but i've just had to adjust mine, and thats where it is, the one towards the radiator is the in and out, it pushes or pulls the headlight offcentre

How do you properly set head lights? They have been replaced from auto accident, on a 1997 Grand Am GT. The necessary repair's on the front have been done.


I believe your car has highs and lows on the same bulb. Park on a level surface about 25feet from a wall. Measure the height from the ground to the center of your bulb and mark that on the wall. On your headlight somewhere, it should say VOR or VOL or it may not say anything. If it says VOR, when you turn on your lowbeams, the brightest spot should line up just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or doesn't say anything at all, then you need to aim the lights two inches below the mark. There should be a plastic (white or black, but usually white) bolt of some sort on or very close to the headlamp that you can turn that will raise or lower the aim of your headlights

Lowbeam


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
