I'm hoping one of you guys can solve a problem for me. I had my headlights working great till I took it to the paint shop. They took them all apart and now when you turn on the lights, the passenger side works fine but the drivers side doesn't open, even though the lamp comes on. If you push the button on the radiator support limit switch (the one that's supposed to shut off the motor after it fully opens) it opens. If allowed to it would just keep running and burn up the motor. Is this just a ground problem or something deeper? Thanks in advance for any help!

Got a buddy of mine that is working on a complete kit to get rid of the cumbersome factory system for the RS Doors. He is using my car as a guinea pig and should have it finished in two weeks. If it works we are going to sell it as a complete kit. Dont know the price on it yet, but should make the RS doors be a joy to have. Lets put it where it is, they look great, but alot of people are tired of crossing their fingers everytime they go out at night. If you want to be put on a list for when it comes out, email me at [email protected] and Ill put you on it.

Hey Tuscon, I don't know the answer to your question, but if it were me I'd make the clowns at your paint shop fix what they screwed up!

It sounds like the limit switches aren't wired correctly. I had a similar problem with my '67 and found that the wires were reversed on one of the switches. I emailed you the wiring diagram for the headlight doors (I tried, but it got returned, let me know your correct address)

if you hit the opposite limit switch and it opens, something has got to be crossed with the limit switches or maybe the motor is plugged in backwards..
