I noticed today that my headlight doors were stuck open and wouldn't close. First it was only the driver's side door, then both of them latter on. Any ideas on what the problem is? They have always worked fine in the past.

If you manually close them do they open back up? Have you checked to make sure the green hoses are connected and have no leaks?

Yes they still open as soon as the car starts. I'll check the hoses.

Chris,
There is also a manual slide valve for the doors that is located on the vacuum lines. You may want to check that also.
