    I have a 90 vette, it also has problems with the headhights opening, sometimes they will and sometimes only one will open. The problem is in the gear motor, there are plastic gears that get wore out or stripped of some of the teeth. You can buy replacement gears for about $35.00 in plastic or spend a few $ more and get brass gears. Ofcourse you have to pull the motor assy off and apart to get to these gears. I don't know if GM dealers still sell them but they are available on the net at vette stores. I bought them once but was in the process of moving from Ms. to La. so i never changed them and now they are lost. That is if both motors are not bad whitch i doubt, also check for a good ground.
