    Default can't keep it up.. lol

    i'm trying to make it so my headlights stay up all the time. if i manually twist them up they retract when i shut off the lights. how do i unplug the headlight motor so the motor stops completely and the headlights can turn on/off?

    Hi fumesniff, You just unplug the wires and then turn up the headlight assembly. Roger.

    yep, thats all it took, i just turned on the headlights to flip them up and unplugged em... lol, how embarassing. the guy i talked to before was all like -- "well you have to cut one of the wires in the harness- blah blah blah." never trust a dude that rolls in a primered escort that smells like cheese to explain corvette wiring to you.

    I read the title of your post, so I came in to respond. Then when I read what you wrote, I realized I was in the wrong forum...actually on the wrong site.

    lol sorry, but we all have those silly moments
