1990 mx5 mazda head lamps go up and down on own . with out switches being toutched .


The headlights moving up and down on their own is almost always related to dirty grounds on the circuit - specifically at a multi-pin connector located just under the brake booster. It's a white flat plastic rectangle with about 7 leads running into it and attached with a machine screw into the shelf area below the booster. Water can collect there causing corrosion. The connector can be opened up and the contacts cleaned. There's a good video on cleaning electrical connectors on YouTube

I have an Mk1 Mx5 and my popup lights were working fine till last week, were only one (drivers side) comes up. I can pop the hood and fiddle with the manual light raiser and then it starts to work but its...


Lubricate all the rods and connections you have so there is not as much friction.

The headlights in a Mazda Miata are generally of two types. Some Miatas use the factory "flip up" style headlights, where a motor raises and lowers the headlight assembly out of the front bumper area. When this motor fails or when the headlights are not working properly, you'll need to replace the failed component. Replacement headlights are normally available from Mazda or from most auto parts stores if you need to replace the entire assembly. However, before you replace anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem. check for debris in the path and any loose or frayed wires.

Unfortunatly there is no adjustments, probably a weak motor.

If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the advice.

thanks

I own a 1990 Mazda MX5 and the headlights need adjusting - how do you adjust them please. The housing is flush with the bonnet so no need to adjust this just the aim.


After taking off the covers which suround the head lamps. There are two screws 1 in the 6 0`clock position to adjust the up and down position and one in the 9 0`clock position to adjust side to side position

1990 mazda miata mx5 headlights wont pop up


There's a 30-amp fuse for the headlamps - check that first. Under the hood on the passenger side. Right next to it is a relay that drives the headlights.

I need to change the lights on my mazda mx5 first reg july 2005 to left hand as i now live in france?


Buy a new pair of headlights from a French Motor Factor or from your nearest Mazda dealer and just swap them over. Then go to a garage to get the headlight beams correctly adjusted. Voila!

If you want specific instructions, then you'll need diagrams which are not available online for copyright reasons, but Haynes publish the correct manual which you can either buy new or get secondhand from online suppliers like ebay and Amazon.
