Bad motor, relay or actuator. Common problem on F body cars like this.

Yes, this is a common problem. GM has a plastic gear running on a metal gear. The plastic wears out. There is a one time fix for this. You rotate the large ring gear around to the good side, as only half of the ring gear is actually used. Go to Camaroz28.com and search for "headlight fix" in the LT1 section. BTW, there are now replacement metal gears available for the plastic gears. Much cheaper than a new motor.
