1 Answer


You can do it by adjusting the limit switches that will stop the light covers at half mast. I doubt it would work with the vacuum actuated hide-away lights. But the electric motor type may be able to do this ...although it is not an option that I know of. Simply find the limit switch & adjust it to kill the motor when the light covers are half way down. However; it may look silly ...this was part of the Probe style ...I liked it ...but never seen it repeated on any other automobile.
