How do you adjust headlights, specifically high beams, Dealers can't seem to do it! I meant, how do you adjust the height (aim) of the headlights, particularly the high beams? My low beams are fine, but high beams hit the ground way too soon. No one can get it right. How do I adjust the high beams (where is the adjustment) to get them to aim higher? Pictures & instructions would be helpful.

Thanks again.

Hello,

These head lights adjust themselves there is an actuator and a control module that run the system.

Here are some diagrams (below) of the system so you can take a look at whats going on.

Please let us know what happens, we are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

Turning the actuator didn't do anything.

Unfortunately trying to turn the actuator by hand isn't going to work and more than likely they will not turn easily if at all.

What I would suggest is we check for power at the actuators and if they are being commanded on and not moving then they need to be replaced.

Here is a guide that will help with this:

Below you will find the wiring diagrams that will give the detail needed in order to find out if there is voltage.

Please run through this and let us know what questions you have.

Thanks
