Question about 1996 Pontiac Firebird
After having the headlights on for a little while the headlight switch will get too hot to touch and then the headlights will turn off automatically. After turning the car off for a little while the headlight switch will cool down and the headlights will come back on. What is going wrong and how do I fix it.
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.

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.

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.

Your car may have daytime running lights, Our 92 Riveria does they are on all the time. Many GM cars in this era had this feature.
