New to here, I have a 1988 Daytona Shelby Z with 140,000 miles currently parked, needs another turbo (second time) overhaul since it is leaking oil big-time into the exhaust. It is clean and needs paint, interior is still nice and I have owned it since new (got it day before Thanksgiving 1987). I also have a 1990 Daytona ES 3.0 automatic with only 74.000, very clean, redid the trans when I got it five or six years ago with upgrades, it is a driver (I'm retired) and doesn't get driven more than 2000 miles a year. It did have working pop up headlights for the first 4 years but they get done manually now since I cannot figure out where the headlight module is-I have found some reference to it on the web but it says it is either located to the left of the steering column or under the dash up where a center speaker would go-I have no idea how I'd get to that, the vague references to it make it sound like it is simple to get to...anyone know the trick?

The control module is in the center stack, near the radio. They suffer from bad solder joints as well as the epoxy filling leaking out like goo all over everything.
I had the inserts for the defroster out, and see 4-13mm bolts that hold the dash to the firewall. I did not remove them mostly because it looked like I should remove the center stack to pull back the dash and probably other things. Even looking up from underneath and removing the lower side panels to the console, dropping glove box, pulling the heater controller and radio out I could not see the module-I've looked online and cannot find any description for actually removing the module, but plenty on how to repair it once out.

thanks for that I will look, I kind of remember seeing what now looks to me to be the module by the steering column, I cannot remember if I took it out, but now that I see what it looks like I'll pull it and open it up. Hope this works

The headlight relay module in a 1990 Daytona is a black box, maybe the size of a cigarette pack, clipped on/near the steering column below the dash.
that's where I found it, thanks, I removed it and plugged it back in and now they work-YEA! I didn't put it back in the clip that holds it to the bracket, instead I gaffer taped it so that I can remove it easily without removing the lower panel. In the event I have to cut it open, I can easily get to it now. Thanks for the accurate information.
