Headlights stuck -97 probe

Hi!

I was driving my probe yesterday but this morning when i was going to drive to work and the head lights wont go up now the lamps works.

when i tried a number of times i hear that one of the relays makes a sound and the cover of this relay is broken so i can see a spark when trying to get the lamps up.

In the owners manuel this relay is "headlight"

picture of witch relay i mean is here :

Sorry for my bad enligish!

I'm not 100% sure, but I thought they used vacuum to open the headlights and just energize a solenoid valve.

I have some more information on the problem. Former owner has done a "sleepy eye mod".

First time i see this button under the dash now after owning it nearly 3 years, however if i take the the lamps up manuelly and then pull the switch down the lamps fall down but i tried to do the same with the orginal light switch then it dosent go down.

I think when i parked the car and took the lamps down i hit the sleepy eye button with my feet when this happend.

I tried to take them up with the "retra" fuse but it dosent work either.

Pic of the switch:


Edit:

Looked over all the fuses and the relays and all works fine!



I hope u understand my english!
