Saw someone with similar problem, but my prob is different. I disconectd the blue wire and left the headlight up, but when I turn on the headlight beams on the motor starts making noise. And its louder noise than the noise it does when its down. I thought that if I disconected theblue wire there should be no motor running, and be happy with just the light beams on, but now i cant even have beams on, only the yellow ones.

any suggestions, I just want the beams to work witho0ut it making noise.

If the headlights make noise when they are in the full up or full down position, then I presume what you hear is the headlight motor. If so, the gear in the headlight is stripped (unless you have an '87-88 in which case the rollers have disintegrated) and you need new gears (or rollers). You can get either gears or rollers from

There are various writeups on the Net addressing headlight problems for the Fiero. one is on my web site at

Good luck!
