on my 1999 3.8l, when i shut off the headlights they retract as advertised, but the motor keeps running for abt 2-3 seconds after the lights stow away. is this normal? isn't this hard on the motors?

The control module monitors the loads on the servo motors and when it reaches a specific load the module shuts off the power, they are designed this way too make sure the headlight are both fully open or closed.
