Question about 1997 Pontiac Firebird
On my 1997 pontiac transam when i turn the head lights off and the head lights go down the head light motors keep runing for about 4 seconds . what ever shuts the power off to the headlight motors is not doing so i have changed the head light module and the headlight switch but that did not fix the problem please help .
I had the same thing....the dealer wants you to get a new motor for it, but its just a stripped gear. The motor only use half of the gear.
here: http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm IT gives directions on how to do it and they even have metal gears you can order to permenately fix it

I had the same problem, open the hood look by the headlights, just to the side of them you will see knobs. with the lights off turn the knobs (one at a time it is easier), turn it 'till the light come all the way up, do the same for the other then turn the lights on , they should try to go up and the immediately go down. this usually resets the motors to allow the to reach there complete stooping point.
