Welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you.


I suspect that you have a faulty retractor relay or faulty headlamp motor.

You will need to check power and ground to the relay and motor to determine where the fault lies.

Here is a wiring diagram to help you out.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
