Dancing headlight issue

Postby truenoboy » Mon Jun 24, 2019 11:27 am

So I've now tried three different motors on my driver's side headlight, but the headlight keeps opening and closing when I turn the switch off. Since I've tried three motors with the same issue, I doubt the issue is with the HL motor. What cases this issue, and how can I fix it?

It sounds like they need to be adjusted. Check out this thread which discusses the issue and fix. https://www.club4ag.com//forums/viewtopic.php?t=20851

Thanks! Unfortunately that link is about a different issue. I'm not having issue with adjustment because I already set it by adjusting the arms. The issue is that the lights repeatedly open and close on the driver's side when I turn the switch off. Like a continuous blinking eye.

Then that might be a short in the line. If the adjustment is off it will act like that but only once, it wouldn't do it continuously.

Try cleaning the connection to the retract relay (by the battery). Make sure the pins/plugs aren't corroded or caked with crap, and the wires arent broke.

The grease that was used in this connector is old and gotten pasty over the years. Not to mention it likey has collected lots of crap too.
