Headlight Door Motor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Headlight Door Motor all about?

Your headlight door motor is what operates the raising and lowering of your headlight doors. It’s a single motor that is mounted just behind the center grille, wound with two field windings. The assembly contains internal limit switches and a worm gear drive. In most vehicles, there is a relay circuit breaker assembly immediately to the right of the steering column. In other vehicles, it is mounted on the fuse block.

When you turn on your headlights, the relay becomes energized, and the doors open. A limit switch stops power from going to the motor. When you turn off your headlights, the circuit is completed, the doors close, and another limit switch stops power from going to the motor.

Keep in mind:

  • Your headlights are an important safety feature, and should always be visible to oncoming traffic.
  • If your vehicle has been sitting for a long time, your headlight doors may open with difficulty, or not at all.
  • The problem could come from the relay or the entire motor.

How it's done:

  • The vehicles hood is opened and supported manually
  • The defective headlight door motor is removed
  • The new headlight motor is installed
  • The hood manual support is removed
  • The repair is verified and the headlight door motor is tested for proper operation

Our recommendation:

Due to the importance of your headlight doors, it’s essential that the headlight door motor works properly. If the vehicle has been sitting, repeatedly activating the switch may loosen the circuit and fix the issue. If that method doesn’t work, have one of our expert mechanics inspect and replace the headlight door motor if necessary.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Headlight Door Motor?

  • Headlight doors stay open
  • Headlight doors won’t close
  • Grinding noise when you try to open or close the headlight doors

How important is this service?

Headlight doors that won’t open can cause some serious trouble, especially if you are driving at night. Any problem with your headlights requires an immediate attention from one of our expert mechanics. This is a safety issue and one that should be dealt with as quickly as possible.

Ben
36 years of experience
I'm new to YourMechanic and wasn't there when Ben first arrived. We also had some issues finding parking since I live downtown. I say this only because Ben took it all in stride and was incredibly patient with me. Once he go started, the scheduled hour appointment only took 45 minutes to complete - Ben was efficient, friendly and helpful throughout. It sounded as though initially he expected that I would need to take my car to a shop for extensive repairs, but he somehow managed to make the more serious repairs himself while I waited at home on the couch. After fearing a big bill, it was a very welcome surprise to have my Fusion back in complete working order so soon. Thanks, Ben!

Jay

I was very happy with Jay. He was able to diagnose and replace my T 100's starter right in my driveway. He was on time (even early), polite, knowledgable and just all around pleasant. I felt very comfortable discussing the trucks condition with him. This was my first time using a mobile car repair and I am sure it won't be the last. Jay left a VERY good impression and is certainly an asset to your company.

The ads saying the $70 could be used for parts. But Johnnie Jackson says he could NOT fix the problem and the parts are NOT available: in other words, $70 could NOT be used for parts. So it is a lie as simple as that.
