    lock the door and the headlights pop up then down?

    I just took my car from storage, 2000 TA, and the battery was dead. After I got it started I drove it a bit to charge the battery up. Now when I use the key fob to lock the car the head lights go up and then down real fast, as if it is flashing the lights to alert that the alarm is set. I don't want it to do this. It never did in the past. is there a way to turn this off??

    most likely the headlight gear is messed up.....pretty common and a pretty cheap and easy fix. I used bfranker's brass gears. Only takes a few minutes to swap them out.

    yep....me too. That's pretty much exactly how it acts but in reality it's that headlight gear. Sometimes you can just flip your stock gear 180 degrees and fix it but in my case that didn't work.

    Sounds good. I'll just replace the gears. I'm sure the brass will be better than the plastic
