Re: 1982-1986 firebird headlight relay wiring

I have a few questions...

What year is the car?

Have you checked the connector at the motor for corrosion? (my passenger side did the same thing- serious corrosion issues...)

Have you checked the headlamp module? That is what controls the operation of the headlights...
