Q: Headlight stuck

asked by on

The headlight gets stuck and doesn't always flip up or down.

The flip-up headlights have motors in them that enable the flip motion. The fuses in the motor circuit, motors, and wiring, all should be checked for wear or damage. The motor itself may have failed. Have an experienced technician, like the ones at YourMechanic, determine the cause of your non-working headlight and estimate the repair.
