The headlights will have small rods or adjusting screws located near the headlight mounting points. Will probably need a torx socket or screwdriver to adjust. Torx is a 6 point type screw.

Adjusting headlights


You should not try to adjust the headlights yourself because if you get them to where they shine in other drivers eyes when going down the road you could be fined for it.If you don't know how or where the beams should shine you could make it worse,they have to be a certain hieght and a certain angle.

I have a 97 pontiac grand prix 3800 and i know the screws adjust the head lights but is that all i would have to do to adjust them?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The screws should adjust the height of the lights. Park the car at night with the lights on a wall of some type to get equal height.

1998 pontiac grand prix se shifts fast and hard, or shifts late. what can cause this


On the trottle body there is the trottle valve cable or TVC. This is what regulates the pressure in the transmission and determines how hard and when to shift. If you adjust this by moving the throttle cable forward towards the headlights it will result in an earlier smoother shift.

How to replace a throttle postion sensor in a 1997 pontiac grand prix 3800l nonsupercharger.


You need a torx socket set and remove the two screws that hold the sensor to the throttle body. The wires unplug from the sensor. Reconnect the new sensor and mount it back on the throttle body. There is no adjustment, it only goes on one way. If your check engine light is on, reset it by disconnecting your battery for about 30 seconds.

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer


A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

Try wiggling the gearshift lever when you put it in park. I have a Chevette that does the same thing. If that doesn't work, I would check the actual ignition switch that is down on the steering column under the dash. It could either be worn or out of adjustment. Any questions I'll be glad to help.

I need to know the hight ,,when adjusting the


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
