I just wanted it to go up!
My headlight...you didn't think I was referring to my...nevermind
Anyway, today was DMV day, and Delaware DMV is no cakewalk. So I do my pre trip at the house and check and double check lights, horn, headlights etc...and all is well, the lights go up. However, once I get into the inspection lanes at DMV the drivers side headlight refuses to go up. Everything else was good, we just put new brakes on car and all other lights work and we passed emissions, (I should note that they at least new the motor was in the back this time, as the last time we were there for inspection the guy puts the rpm reader on the front and can't figure out how the motors running with no rpms). Although they did let us by without the fuel vapor check today because they didn't seem to know what they were looking for when they looked at the motor.
Anyway, back to headlight. So I pull over on parking lot, which is in the middle of being repaved, so there's not a lot room to park and tinker with light. But I get it working and pull back into check lane which has now gotten busy. After waiting my turn I pull in only to have the light not go up again! So again we fail. At this point I'm begging and pleading with Oliver (I call my Fiero Oliver, fans of the old Top Gear will known where I got that name). I looking at Oliver longingly saying please put your light up. Nope, everytime I get into the lane the light won't go up.
Finally, after waiting in the heat and going through check lane 3 times I unplug and raised the lights manually. I should note the lights came on everytime, it just wouldn't go up. The guy in front wanted to fail us again, saying that turning on and off wasn't enough they had to go up and down. But the other guy said let them pass and told me to get it fixed within the next 2 years (before next inspection).
Thus concludes my day of drama at the DMV.
