One of my headlights on my '90 Miata is stuck in the up position. Toggling the button in the console does nothing, but I can manually lower them through the knob in the engine compartment. After I lower them, it'll come up if I turn the headlights on. Google says it might be a relay. Any thoughts on this before I buy a relay off of ebay?

No longer drive a Miata, although I still love them!
Not a mechanic, although I do date one!
He says that a relay is a pretty cheap thing to buy just to check, but that it could be the motor. Something about the polarity and that's why it works one way... I can't even quote all technical stuff he yammered off, but if he gets a chance, I'll ask him to post to you when he gets home.

Try looking on Miata.net, there is a wealth on information on those boards!
