Headlight motor no power.

My headlights do not go up and down.  Lights work,  but do not open.
I found a comment that suggests I may have blown a fuse under the dashboard.
Does my 87 have an additional fuse box somewhere under the dash?
I have not been able to find it.

Not under the dash.
87 should be all in the box above foot well.

I think I had the same happen when I lost the fuse for head light power.

If I remember correctly, the main power for the headlights and motor comes from a red 10ga wire direct from the battery.

Are your headlights working?

What about the relay that is attached to the headlight motor?  Maybe it's bad or has a bad connection.

+1 This has happened to me before.  Another possibility is the wiring connector at the motor.  The plug on my old 924 had gotten so corroded that no power could get to the motor.  A quick cleanup was all that was needed.
