I am new to this so bear with me. But I am 19 and bought my first porsche 924s a little over a year ago. I must say i love it. I am having problems with my headlight motor. All of a sudden it stopped working, and then one day out of the blue it worked for like five tiems andthen quit a gain. Any ideas on what it may be. Thanks

A short somewhere between the tip of your finger and the headlight itself.
When it doesn't work is there any noise?
My guess is that you need to start at one end and work your way to the other to find out where you lose current.
But that info is worth what you paid for it.

You might wish to RTFAQ. There's a link above, and a specific item about this problem.

Your problem is probably the relay down on the headlight motor. Test the power going to the motor before and after the relay to be sure.

I'm sure Dean's already aware of this, but I'm posting it here for those of you who HAVEN'T read the FAQ - this kind of behaviour can also be caused by intermittent/poor quality contacts to the relay or motor.
