After storing my 1991 Trans Am GTA (350ci) for the winter and then
re-starting it, the lights will no
longer open (pop up).. I can manually open them, and the lights themselves
work just fine, but the motor
will not open them.. I don't hear it even trying, so it makes me believe
that it may be the fuse or
something similar.. If anyone has had anything like this happen and knows
what it may be please let me know,
I would greatly appreciate it. I took it to mechanics and they don't
want to touch it saying it will take
too long to diagnose it, but I just don't see how this could be a big
problem, its obviously related to the
fact my car sat in the garage for more then 1.5 years. Please leave a
reply here or better to my email at
email@example.com since this group seems to be flooded with spam and its
hard to read anything, in fact I
don't know if anyone is even going to get this.. Thanx in advance
(location of fuses on my car would be
great, as would the location of the motor if that is what it is)

It appears that a '91 has a "headlamp door module" according to Haynes. It
has 9 wires to it and seems to be the digital equivalent to the mechanical
relay. It could very be that which is causing the problem. A little
condensation over time, you apply power, and zap... Also there seems to be
what's called an "Underhood Electrical Center" in which fuses #3 and #4
cover the right and left headlamp doors respectively, but I can't see both
those fuses blowing at once. But hey, I'm just reading... I'm no mechanic.
Hope this gets you closer to the right answer. If you can't figure it out...
can I buy the headlamp motors off ya? lol....
