My 2000 Firebird has the day running lamps, but it also has a switch you can turn on and off. It is under the circle Headlight switch. You should try that, if it has that feature to turn on and off.

SOURCE: The left headlight will not go down!

Your headlamp lift motor is bad. Go to your local autoparts store buy new one it will run about 70 bucks. Or they have metal gears they sell on the internet that i hear last much longer than the plastic gears they put in. It is very simple to change the part if you are semi-familiar with cars.

SOURCE: 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.

Firebird tail lights


It is a ground problem. When you turn on your headlights, they are sharing the same ground that your brake and T/S lights are using. Check all ground connections to the body from all headlight and taillight wiring are connected and tight. If it doesn't affect your taillights, it may be in your T/S switch. Check your ground connections first.

1996 Pontiac Firebird is running hot


You can do the following with a cold car.

The switch for the electric fan is in the radiator (it responds to the temperature of the water in the radiator, not the temperature of the water in the engine). With the engine running, if the switch has 2 wire on it, pull those two wires and briefly touch them together. If it has only 1 wire, tough that wire to ground. The fan should come on. If it does, the problem is the switch. If not, then the relay or the fan, or the fan's fuse is to blame.

Headlights will not go on


This is a VERY Common Problem on the Older Firebirds. The lights will not come on in the Down Position. They switch on upon Raising. These Motors stop working and need to be Replaced. The Dash lights Flickering is a Direct Problem with the Headlights not Rising.

Headlight fuse 1998 firebird


The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood. You will find a black square box and it should say FUSE on top. Take the lid off and the cover should have the location of the headlamp fuse. If it is not the fuse/breaker it could be a bad dimmer switch in the column.
