My drivers side Headlight won't go up or down. Guess i need to replace motor. I found one on line for a 1990-91 Geo Storm, are they interchangeable? They sure look alike.


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

Headlights in 1990 ford bronco/full size


Bronco uses a RELAY switch under the hood. Is that what you replaced?

Swap it with the A/C RELAY switch (they are the same) to check it.

FORD CAPRI 1990


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...

New Battery Installation (Problems)


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
