    I don't think so . . . I will check it out. It makes a ratcheting noise as well. I did replace a turn lamp bulb not to long ago. Thanks for the tip.

    One of your gears is going bad in either one of your headlight motors. Mine did the same exact thing when my headlight motor gear was going bad and then stop right when I installed a brand new one.

    Yep, its a headlight motor gear. I had the same issue. You could replace the gear but id probably go ahead and replace the whole motor.

    Why? it's not hard at all to put a new gear in there. it took me like 30 minutes infact and everything works great now.

    it's a lot more costly to do that too .

    they sell new brass gears that don't wear out. Look around for those
