If you bought it with the problem it could be that the previous owner has had a "sleepy eye kit" fitted, if so, somewhere you may find a switch that is not a factory fitted switch, not the latching type but a press and release type which if momentarily pressed with the head lights turned on it gradually lowers the headlights to the desired height. hope this is of help to you. regards .dave

If they do not retract spontaniously - it must be IMASEN H270 relay.Relay is located just near cooling fluid tank in the front left side of engine compartment.You should cleant the relay contacts or change it. Sometimes, if this happens and You just need to keep going - changing this relay with one from windshield wiper relay might solve the issue for a period of time.
if its every year, a couple of things to consider are, climate in which you live( extreme colds can "snap" batteries), quality of battery(rebuilt batteries dont tend to have a long shelf life, or low quality, i know we are all on budgets.). always get the right one for the car. analyze when you are having to replace the battery(obviously right now is getting cold, midwest and back east). get the right one and it will come with a warranty if this continues. take a volt meter and see how many volts the alternator is putting out. you dont want any more than about 14.5v. after that you tend to start cooking the battery.
i've owned 3 300zx's and a couple of 280's. i'm pretty sure i know what the problem is. on the left side of the steering wheel is a few push button switches. i believe it's the top one that pops out the headlights. so just push that button once and the lights should retract. hope that helped
