Pop up system?
This is another one of those F'ing pop up headlight questions. I have a new motor and that did not work, the fuses look good and I also tried a new actuator module where the two headlight motors connect...what else is there to check to get these damn headlights working.??? It is only the driver side and the light itself turns on but just does not come up. The motor has no function at all. Tried just to check before putting the new motor in if the thing even turns when just plugged in but it didn't. So any ideas are appreciated besides only driving in the day! Thanks Ya'll!

If you applied 12 volts to motor and it did not run,it's gotta be bad.There's only two wires going to it -a green and a brown.Green to ground an the other to power.Where did you get it?

Have you checked for voltage at the plug? I would start there to make sure you're getting juice to the plug then just start working your way backwards if you're not.

If you suspect the motor is bad,you had to cut the wires to put another one in,so undue those two wires and touch the green one to negative battery terminal or ground and the other to positive terminal and the motor should run or it's bad for sure! If motor runs then,yeah you have another problem.It would of been a waste of time and money to change motor without making sure you have voltage at the motor plug!

Well the motor has it's own plug so there is no cutting involved. Turns out the connector that the motor does plug into was screwd up. I plug the new one into it and it also did not work so I replaced the plug system and all was fixed. Maybe when the first motor died it started to fry one of the wires and after some use it finally did burn the wires.? I prefer the look of the the solid headlight covers but the pop up stuff does get old!!! Thanks ya'll for all input! F-body brothers!!!!
