    i think plastic head light lenses come with a protective coating so when u polish them out they tend to fog up quicker the next time this is what a friend of mine who owns an auto body shop found when he experimented with that

Another option is to take a light rubbing compound and go at it on the lenses. Do not use too harsh of compound. The lenses have a plastic film that gets foggy the compound will take it off.

There is a product you can buy that will take the fog off of it, cant remember the name of it off the top of my head. Some garages like Tire Kingdom have services where they will do it for you as well

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - HEADLAMP

When a vehicle experiences problems with the headlamp system, verify the condition of the battery connections, fuses, charging system, headlamp bulbs, wire connectors, relay, high beam switch, dimmer switch, and headlamp switch. Refer to the appropriate wiring information.
Each vehicle is equipped with various lamp assemblies. A good ground is necessary for proper lighting operation. Grounding is provided by the lamp socket when it comes in contact with the metal body, or through a separate ground wire.
When changing lamp bulbs check the socket for corrosion. If corrosion is present, clean it with a wire brush.
When it is necessary to remove components to service another, it should not be necessary to apply excessive force or bend a component to remove it. Before damaging a trim component, verify hidden fasteners or captured edges are not holding the component in place. Don't replace parts unless you test an your sure that is the problem. Check the basic's first ! Then find a wiring diagram an see what all is involved , connectors , grounds , power an do a voltage drop test on the circuit to find the problem !An a scan tool would come in handy as well ,to do bi-directional tests !

HEADLAMP SYSTEM

The configuration of the headlamp system of headlamps, park lamps and fog lamps is determined by the BCM. The BCM -body control module determines the lighting configuration as a result of the inputs from the ignition switch, headlamp switch and multi-function switch. A PCI bus-serial data communication network is transmitted from the BCM to the FCM to enable the necessary drivers to set the illumination configuration. Four wires are connected between the headlamp switch and the BCM. The first wire contains information regarding the position of the headlamp switch (Off, Automatic Headlamps, Automatic Headlamp switch fog, Park with Fog, Head, or Head with Fog Lamps). The second wire contains information regarding the position of the dimmer switch (Dome Lamp, Daytime Brightness, Dimming Level or Off). The third wire is a dedicated signal return (ground) wire. The fourth wire provides power to the front fog lamp indicator. You should take this to someone who knows what's up rather then just replacing parts !

My head lights are very fogged i bought the restoration kit but cant figure out how to take off the cover to apply the soulution


Those restoration kits are only for the outside of the lenses. They oxidize and you use that kit to remove oxidation. If the haze is on the inside you need to replace the entire housing. They're sealed from the factory. Some people have tried to disassemble and clean insides but the success rate is very low.

How do I remove the headlight cover to clean the inside part of the headlight cover. It appears to be fogging making the lights seem dim.


you are talking aftermarket headligth covers? , the head lite itself cant not be taken appart, your best bet is to drill a small hole in the lower part ofthe headlight so moisture can be release, this will help but in the long run you'll need to replace it
