Lol ok.. you may need to check all of your lights and fuses, not just head lights.. example from experience, we had a 91 firebird that had a tail light out and every time we hit the brake pedal both head lights would come up after replacing the bulb on the tail light the head lights were fixed...

Electric motor of headlight don't stop when its down


The gear in headlight assembly is cheap plastic from the factory and is no good. A seller on E-bay has the assembly with machined brass gears that wont fail you no time soon!

2000 pontiac firebird headlights make grinding niose when closed


This problem is caused by the headlight gear being stripped. If you go on ebay, there is someone who sells brass headlight gears. Once you put the gear in, you will not have this problem again. . . unless the other gear goes bad. It's usually the driver's side headlight that does it.

I have a 94 silverado with a 4l60e trans. 1st and 2nd gears shift fine 3rd and o.d.does not engage.i had the trans. rebuilt 9 months ago. is my problem the shift solenoids or the fuse for the trans. .


how it sounds that the solenoids are going bad i would take it back to the shop were you had it rebuilt and have them redo it most shops give a one year warranty on the rebuilds if so they should be able to fix it for free.

The headlight motor continues to run after the light has closed


I had this problem too. The problem is from a stripped plastic gear inside the motor housing. For some reason (poor engineering?) the motor keeps getting power even after the head light is closed. I purchased a new plastic gear and it only lasted me about 2 months. I recommend you check out the site below and purchase a metal gear. I did and my headlight is still working fine after a year.

Headlight problem


Yes had this same problem on my 1984 Corvette and my 1982 Trans AM, it was the head lite motor ground, not sure where it would be on your car but it was near the head lite doors on my cars.

When I turn off the car and lock it either manually or with the remote, the headlights "growl" and flip up and down twice. After that everything is fine. I have a 2000 Pontiac Firebired.


I have had this problem in the past. The issue here is that the headlight gear is likely worn down. Gm manufactored these headlight gears in plastic and sadly they break really easy over time. Same problem with corvettes. Anyway, there is a website that offers a free solution or to order the more duable brass gears. I ordered the brass gears for my 1997 Firebird and that solved the issue. Heres the site http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm
