does anyone else have their headlight actuator motors keep running after the headlights close down for about 7 seconds ?
headlight actuators on 1996 Pontiac Firebird
The worm gear (unreliable plastic garbage) has stripped inside the motor assembly. Will cost you over 150 for a new one: dont buy a used one from ajunkyard. They fail unexpectedlty without warning due to poor engineering. Ive replaced 2 already in mine.Use the control under the boot to manually adjust til you fix it.

This is not an uncommon problem for a 1996 Pontiac Firebird. In most cases the head light actuator will need to be replaced on the affected side. Don't be surprised if the other side fails soon.
My right headlight does the same thing.
