1996 Corvette- headlights will not go up

by Jones
(Warner Robins, GA)

I recently repaired the right side headlight motor. I have seen many write ups where the most common fault was the bezel gear was damaged. My headlight would not go down all the way, and hung in the half up position after a grinding noise. So I suspected if I purchased and replaced the motor that would rectify the situation. It has not. Now both headlights will not go up or down. Any solutions out there? Fuse or is it the headlight control module?

Open the hood and turn the knob on the headlight motor, it will manually raise/open or lower/close the headlights if you can do this then its not the gears.
