Question about 1994 Pontiac Firebird

Lights When I turn my head lights off they make a grinding noise like they are still trying to go down for about 10-20 seconds after they are already down.  Do you know of this problem and how to fix it?

Had the same problem on a 95 firebird. We had to replace the motor assembly to solve the problem and it has worked fine ever since.

Replace the motors that are for the headlights. My 1994 firebird does the same thing on the right side and it is because of the motor, but there is a solution until u can afford the motor.. Turn the headlights on and pop the hood then unhook the motor to where the lights stay up at all times, it will not effect the lights it will just leave the lifts up.

Ouch!  If both are doing it, I don't have a clue; I'm pretty sure that the motors are shut off by limit switches, similar to how wipers 'park' themselves and are probably adjustable although they may have gotten grime in the swtiches (should be sealed though) causing them to not contact properly.

You have the polarity of the battery backward somewhere. Did you replace the starter and hook it up backwards. Difficult but possible. Check your positive and negative on the battery itself.

2000 pontiac firebird headlights make grinding niose when closed


This problem is caused by the headlight gear being stripped. If you go on ebay, there is someone who sells brass headlight gears. Once you put the gear in, you will not have this problem again. . . unless the other gear goes bad. It's usually the driver's side headlight that does it.

Having problems with turning over......


do you mean engine rolled over or cranked over and would not start?or is it that the starter would just click? or did starter sound like it was wineing and you had to keep on and off the key until it findley started? if any of your answers to thies questions is yes (except first question) its time for a new starter. as far as the grinding noise don't worry about it, that's what makes me believe its the starter. install new starter, problem solved.
