I have 1990 vette have rebuilt headlight motors and a new headlight module , but headlights still go up and stay up in sunlight

Not a Corvette expert, but I don't think sunlight would have any effect.
The motors should close the doors when you turn the lights off regardless if it is dark or not.
Are the headlights staying on, or just the doors staying up ? The up position is the default when something is wrong, so I think it takes voltage to close them.

Removing the whole pop head lights assembly from my 1997 corvette

Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise.
Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers,
Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight,
Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed,
If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.

My 1994 Firebird trans am headlights are giving me trouble. I put brass gears in two years ago and they have worked fine. now I am having a problem where I turn on the lights and the doors com up fine,...

lol ok.. you may need to check all of your lights and fuses, not just head lights.. example from experience, we had a 91 firebird that had a tail light out and every time we hit the brake pedal both head lights would come up after replacing the bulb on the tail light the head lights were fixed...
