Re: ford 1990 capri headlights won't go up or down any...
You and your relays ???their isnt a relay so get the test light out and work your way backwards ,test for a feed to the motor unit first ,then go backwards ,the feed comes from the dip /main side of the light switch

Not sure if they are interchangable. Usually the motor is good, just needs a cleaning.
Remove the motor, paying attention to the relationship of the crank that attaches the motor to the light. Remove 3 screws and the motor comes apart. There is a circular copper area that electrical contacts run on the make the motor behave properly. Clean up the copper with fine sandpaper, and clean the finger contacts also. Reassemble and it may work. Check it for proper operation before putting at all back together again...Good luck...Chris
My wife had a mid 80's capri and the latch/release button was on the drivers side door pillar at the back of the door near the bottom of the pillar, the door had to be open to see it, there was a second one that we only found when selling the car on the bottom of the drivers side door arm rest. Not sure if that helps as yours is newer but it might give you a couple of more places to start. On my son's Mercury Topaz you have to open the glovebox and push a semi=concealed button on the right..Those lovely engineers at Ford! lol...
I would remove the battery and give it a good charge. New batterys require a low amp over night charge. A cars altenator isn't designed to charge a battery it's made to maintain the battery to it's fullest ability. The headlights opening and closing would indicate to me a low voltage, causing the relays for the headlights not to fully shut or open. Let me know if this solves your issue, if not we can trouble shoot farther. Thank you for using fixya.com
