    The plastic gear in the headlight motor is stripping its teeth. You have 2 options of fixing. One is temp the other much better.


    Opt 1: rotate the gear 180* this will allow the lights to work, however over time you'll be back at this junction.

    Opt 2: there is a billet aluminum gear you can get that will fix it permenently.

    Im on my phone so I can't post link, if no one else does before I get hm I post it for you.

    Google Rodney Dickman headlight gears. First Google search. The new gear is brass.

    Make sure you read the entire page. Not just "ok new gear is brass so I wont have to worry about it tearing up a gear." He tells you everything you need to do to prepp the gear and the headlight motor itself. Because if you just take out the gear and skip the rest you will destroy the metal gear just like the plastic one

    Loose housing is notorious for trashing gears also.
