Sounds like the motor for the headlight door is bad or there's a bad wiring connection at the motor. Try tapping the motor with a small hammer. That might get it going again. HTH. -Jim

Hi, yeah I think Jims correct it could be a bad motor or loose connection at the motor additionally though it could be your headlight control module that could have been burned out but most likely it's a motor or wiring to the motor check that first then if its not that it might be your headlight control motor module that triggers the head lights to pop up.
