anyone know a possible cause for my calais's pop up lights not to work? the lights will be

on but the eyelids wont be up. i know the motor works perfectly because i can manually

wind them up, and when the battery is connected up again they close themselves.. but the

lights work just fine so somehow the power isnt getting to the motor. is it possibly the

relay? how could i check whats going wrong? anyone been able to fix the same problem?

i would think its not a fuse problem as they close when powered, thus being connected, maybe a sticky relay yes or a bad connection to the motor from relay, use a multimeter to isolate the problem

the relay is a common prob with the eyelids... relay is behind the drivers side headlight, there is 2 or 3 relays there.. try one of the other relays in the eyelid one and see how ya go..
