    Hi Ronnie,Thanks for asking about the headlights I have been very busy in the last couple of weeks. So far all I have done was swap out the headlight switch . It seems to be working fine so far,but I still think there is a dead spot in the motor.After the holidays I will take both motors a part and look in to it further . I will be taking the car out tomorrow for a 50 mile trip . Have a good holiday ,thanks Tony.

    Thanks Barney for your feedback, I started the car up today and lights went up and worked fine ,although I loosed the headlight motor knob last night because lights did not go up but they were on, sometimes only the drivers side will go up and the other side will not .I hit the headlight switch again and they worked fine. I think it could be the headlight switch or something binding on the crank arm. What say you.thanks tony.

    Did you know?

    With out this forum this car dead,nobody knows how to fix this car. when I have to bring it to repair shop they do even know what it is,even a buick dealer has problem simply they do not have smarts or the tech 1 tools they need to fix car never mind brake system.A little story I had a abs light on since I bought this 5 years ago I tried everything on my own and failed if it wasn't for dave telling me about my front wheel sensors even though they check good they were still bad so I make investment with dave and the light has been off ever since it is thanks to people like him, that keeps the forum alive! now every works in this car except the cigarette lighter heating element, looking to purchase one,other than that this car is driven every day,i will post pictures soon
