Help Please - Headlight Pods Won't Retract

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

For the last few times I switched on the headlights, the pods come springing right up just fine, but when I switched the lights off, the headlight pods would not go down for about 5 minutes.   So the lights would turn off, but the pods would just stay up.   Now, the last time I switched off the headlights, the pods haven't gone down at all - and it has been a day since I turned them off.

Any thoughts on the reason for this, before I try to figure it out?

Motor lift control unit..    This contains the timers & relays that power the up---down .. the fact that both are staying up points to this unit rather than an individual motor issue.  From the description you give, I would look for a dry joint.  Firstly in the two connectors to the unit, disconnect and spray with switch/contact cleaner reconnect and see how things go from there... If still not working inspect the unit itself or replace with new..

hope that helps.

My headlamp pods went up (and lights turned on) but now pods won’t retract, even though headlights are turned off.

Do you mean this Pod Delay Unit?.

Hello - what part number is the motor lift control unit?  Just want to be sure I am clear on the part.
