Under your radio is a little box, remove that and in there is a headlight lift motor relay. The clicking is coming from that. It is realy easy to change out.


check the head light relay. I think my relay is starting to go bad in mine. when i put mine down i hear a click click click and they are jumpy. but the click is coming from under the dash on mine. one of these days i will have to find out whats clicking. so i can replace the relay. all i know is mine sounds like a relay

On my 91 Capri, there is a small black rectangular switch in the center console near the parking brake handle. If you push this switch, the headlights raise without turning on the headlights themselves. The headlights will not retract until you push this switch again, even if you use the regular headlight switch. By the way, my headlights always take several seconds to retract. So, if you try this, give them 5 to 10 seconds to retract. After this, they should work normally using the regular headlight switch.

there is a 20 amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood by the battery if this fuse blows the headlights will not raise or lower. this fuse also powers the memory of the radio. this fuse powers the lift switch by the brake handle.
