Could be a loose or bad wire leading to the motor that flips the headlights, or thed motor could be going bad itself. checxk those out, and if its not one of those, it could be in your cars computer.

1990 pontiac firebird


there is no adjustment there is however a manuel override.

open up the hood - look to the left/right of the headlamp assembly you are working on there is a black knob that if you turn will crank up one way and down the other.

If you want to fix it you need to replace the actuator.

Retractable seat belt wont close


Is this a NEW seat belt?  Or a junkyard part... Per the Toyota 1988 Repair Manual - the belt is allowed to be pulled out at a tile of 15 degrees or less; and cannot be pulled out at over 45 degrees of tilt.

Your problem is the belt is not retracting.  The manual states to replace the assembly.  It also states: "Whenver installing a new belt assembly, verify proper operation before installation."

If a new part does not have proper operation; have it replaced. If this is a 'used'  new part - get a NEW seat belt.

2000 formula headlamp doors malfunction.


firebird headlamps are a pain, i had a similar problem with mine, the problem is the gears in the motor assembly are made of a soft material-i think plastic actually and the gears wear down after time-there are 2 ways to fix this problem, 1. replace the gears with brass ones or 2. rotate the gear in the motor to where you are now using the new side of the gear, because only half of the gear is used when operating the headlights so if you rotate the gear to where your now using the unused side--it should work better now--after time tho this side will eventually get worn down as well so this is only a temporary fix.

The turns,hazards, high/ low headlamps, possibly cruise cont. and wipers, are all operated by the "multifunction switch". Replace it and you should be good to go. I hope this helps.
