for some reason after i got dyno tuned yesterday when i go to lock or unlock the car via key fob the head lights pop up then go back down right away and one is making a grinding noise like the motor is still running after the head light is already down. Could this be a BCM issue? bad ground maybe?

You may also want to go with the Cardone motors before making a gear switch. They have a different case, which is easier to service the gears in the future.

Also, if you go with metal gears, be sure to get the ones with the rubber inserts so you don't strip those out, too.
