Headlights pop up and down when car is locked

Car Information:
Pontiac Firebird
Year: 2001
Engine Size: 4.3
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
The car is equipped with factory keyless entry / alarm. When the doors are locked with either the remote fob or the door lock button exterior marking lights blink and the horn sounds briefly. Now the headlights pop up and down and the motors for them run too long causing concern that this will do harm to the headlight motors.
Could you please respond via e-mail I work a lot of odd hours now and seldom get to hear your show live. Thanks ahead for any help!!

Answer:
It needs to be checked with the tech 2 scan system to know for sure but I would suspect a body control or anti theft module.
