If you don`t want to replace it right away unplug your light motor so the light wont go down everytime you turn the car or lights off, at least you will only have to wind it once a night;)

Assuming the motor and relay are good, sometimes the nylon balls in the clutch deteriorate and crumble due to age. The motor and clutch assy can be removed and disassembled and the nylon balls replaced with the nylon balls found in a Ford window clutch repair kit. They are about 1/4 in in diameter. If a kit cannot be obtained similar steel bearings of the same size (out of a CV joint possibly) can work however the cushion provided by nylon is lost making headlight operation a little louder at the top and bottom of its travel.

1992 Honda Prelude lights wont focus


Hard to say without looking at it. Usually it is 2 reasons: the bulb is not fitted properly or the headlight itself is dull (yellow). In the second case you just polish the headlight with some car polish until it is clear. Anyway i am sure you fixed it by now....

Check the headlight switch,for a no light's failure.
Check all of the wiring for damage ,especially underneath the truck,and check for a good ground.
