There is no headlight motor. The entire headlight raising and lowering function is controlled by the cars vaccume system.If your headlights don't operate correctly,I suggest that you either check the vac. hoses or the vac diaphragm's located under the hood in front of the radiator.

If your relays are working properly, you might have a stripped gear in the motor. You can replace the gear or the motor depending on your resources. If the headlight is loose, the gear more than likely has teeth missing.

If you mean the headlight motors, go to and click on the technical link. they have the procedure with photos and you can get the bushings (use Delrin, not nylon) on eBay for less than $10 to do both. it takes about 1 hour per headlight opposed to paying $300 per headlight to have it done.

Failed limit switch, or bad wiring. The motor will keep running until the headlight finds "home" ... ergo a failed limit switch as mentioned above. The sensor at the "home" position (headlight off) has to be tripped by the headlight assembly before the motor will shut down. The motor has no idea where the headlight physically is ... it keeps running until the switch is engaged.

The plastic gears in the headlight motors are weak. I had the same problem with my 1984 Corvette. You can get a new motor, but it's much cheaper to get new gears. Check out the C4 section at for a how-to on replacing it.

What needs replacing if ford probe headlight wont stay up?

The headlight motor needs to be removed, and replaced. To change the motor on the passenger side of the car you must jack-up the car, then support it with a jack. Remove the front wheel, and remove the splash guard in the wheel well to access the headlight motor. The instructions for this procedure can be found in a Haynes Repair Manual that covers the Ford Probe, Mazda 626, and Mazda MX6.
