    passenger headlamp motor won't work.

    Hey guys need some help. Passenger headlamp motor won't work. Replaced it 3 times already, while the motors were installed the high and low beams both worked. Sometimes the would be very dim....but the motor wouldn't work at all. Any one else ever have this problem?

    Has to be a wiring, connector or ground issue. Are there separate relays for the motors in the electrical box? If so, try swapping them out.

    Hmmm they have fuses, but that's all I see...I just didn't want to just cut the connector off and start splicing wires...

    That's the easiest way to isolate the issue. Do you have a DVOM or test light to probe the connectors for power and/or ground?

    If you need any assistance with a schematic or anything, let me know. I assume the '99 and '02 are probably wired the same up front.

    Sorry about that. I ended up with a Subamarooo in my garage last night with a non-functioning AC system. By the time I shut down, it was too late to jump on the Board.

    Ok - the left and right motors are separately fused. You should find two (2) 15 amp fuses in the underhood fuse box for the headlamp doors. From the fuses, orange wires pass power to the Headlamp Door Control Module. From the module, you should find a light green and dark green wire going to the left headlamp door and a light blue and dark blue wire going to the right headlamp door.

    The "up" wires are light green on the left and light blue on the right. Other wires going to motor are "down".

    Hmmmm ok I hooked it up today even used a small piece of spliced wire so I know that it had a connection, and still nothing...The lights won't even come on...This seems odd...I'm wondering if I have to replace the module.

    Track your ground down and verify that it has a good connection to the body. I think it is on the radiator support somewhere.
