One reason may be the switch, it's located between the console and the steering wheel. It has a picture of a light bulb on it or above it. Try putting into the down postion. This should make the lights retract after turning them all the way off and not leaving the park lights on.

How do you repair the retractable headlights on a 1989 Honda Accord Dx that can no longer open and close so I leave them permanently open?

First check for any thing that may be blocking them from moving then check your fuses under the hood and under the dash. Then check for power to the h-light retractor should have a constant and a switched source. Chances are that if BOTH lights aren't retracting its the switch in the steering column. Also there is retractable headlight up/down switch on the dash to the right of the steering wheel that works in tandem with the headlight control multifunction stick on the steering wheel. Lastly there is a retractable headlight control module (approx 3"x4" gray box) behind the fuse panel under the dashboard. So you have the motors, fuses, a few feet of wire, steering wheel multifunction switch, retractable headlight control switch and the retractable headlight control module. Any of which could give you a problem with your retractable headlights. Good Luck
