SOURCE: 1987 corvette, headlight goes down and motor

Check the sensors that tell the relay to shut off when the lights close down all the way. This is a fairly common problem especially if this has never been replaced before.

SOURCE: I would like to replace the headlight assembly of

There is a little aluminum stick in the assembly holding it in. On the top of the headlight twist the stick and remove it. It will look like a tent stake. Remove this stick and then the head light assembly will almost fall out.

2004 silverado with dual manual temperature controls. Will not blow hot air out of driver side vents.


could be your controller or temp mix door

1. Gain access to the air temperature motor for circuit testing. There are 5 wires at the motor.

2. The Brown wire is ignition power.

3. The Yellow wire is a ground at all times, through the control head.

4. The Light Blue/Black wire carries a 5-volt reference from the control head to the temperature motor.

5. The Light Blue wire is the feedback circuit to the control head and should measure between about 1 volt (cold) and 4 volts (hot). This feedback circuit operates similarly to a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).

6. The Dark Blue wire is the motor control circuit sent from the control head.

7. When the control head sends out 5 volts on this wire, the motor moves towards hot.

8. When the control head sends out 0 volts, the motor moves towards cold.

9. When the temperature motor reaches the correct position (as measured by the feedback voltage on the Light Blue wire), the control head sends out 2.5 volts. This voltage signals the temperature motor to STOP and hold its present position.

10. Check for correct operation of these voltages.

11. In some cases, the air temperature door doesn't fit correctly in the plenum and will cause the air temperature motor to travel too far. This will cause the control head to become confused and operate erratically.

Turn signal lights stop working. Neither the right or left turn signal work. Heard a noise before it stop working. The flashing started slowing down and stop blinking. Now it doesn't work at all. What

Pasenger side head light will not retract or open. can hear motor operating


perhaps something is obstruting it. Can you open manually? IF so, open, look at it closely and start with wd to loosen some of the mechanism. then, with assistance, have someone turn on lights and you can feel the motion and try to isolate it. If the motor is working, something else is stopping it from opening. Also, motors make noise sometimes, even when they aren't working correctly. Let's see where that takes you.
