If it makes it when the headlights are done after coming up, it means the gears in one or sometimes both of the headlights have stripped , its very common in our year birds because gm used plastic gears in them and they strip very easily , you can ether find a replacement plastic gear or look online and some companies are starting to come out with metal gears that you can replace them with , which i would highly recommend

I have a 2006 outlander ROADSIDE turn signal near headlight no blinking. The bulb is not burned out I need HELP to repair please contact [email protected] Nez

Hi, did you know there is a recall on the indicator/headlight stalk. The plug in the base may be faulty. I wolud check with a Mitsubishi dealer or gGoogle, if your car is included. You need your VIN number. Does it work when you pit your hazards on or you lock the car? If not may be it is the plug in the back of the globe. Good Luck

My headlights, tail lights, and console lights will not turn off. I have a 2007 Kia Optima. I am thinking a possible headlight switch or fuse issue? I tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it....

This could be either the clock spring in the steering column or it could be the body control module. The BCM. They are about 80 dollars USED.

Turn on headlights and dash lights go off, gauges bounce, lights all come on or one side, air compressor turns on, turn headlights off and radio comes on. Turn left turn signal and hear noise under dash....

Take off the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. While waiting for that make sure you have all the ground straps connected that go to the battery cable end and to the engine.

My left headlight door wont open when i turn the lights on 1985 pontiac fiero

If you open the hood, behind the headlight assembly you will see the motor that lifts the headlight, there is a knob that you can rotate to manually to crank up the headlight until you repair it.

Before you put it up manually, turn on the headlights with the hood open and listen to see of the motor is making noise, if it is you can try a repair kit, otherwise get a replacement from the auto part store or junk yard.

Here is a handy place for Fiero parts including the headlight repair kit I mentioned:

Hope this helps

Whining noise when AC or heat is on coming from engine compartmen

I suspect it is the blower fan and the ductwork for the air intake to the blower picks up the air in front of the engine compartment.

It would also be a good idea to have your alternator checked and use the A/C heat controls to see how much the blower motor is demanding from the alternator. Autozone and Oreillys will check the alternator on the car for free.
