My headlights won't seem to lift up. I placed the headlight motors on a battery to test them and they seem to be having no problem but when I hooked them up there isn't even a sound. I thought that it might be a relay (but was told there isn't one) I then checked fuses and replaced them. Still no luck. The headlights work just wont lift up automaticly but will lift if turned by hand. Any idea

Did you check for voltage, anywhere? Check the fuses, also use a voltage tester, make sure the fuse circuit is hot. At the door motor, check for voltage and ground. One wire is voltage, the other is ground. Because it is a reversing motor, voltage and ground circuit switches on the wiring. Could be issue with headlamp door module?
