Question Another EHCS issues / question

Seems to be a popular subject. The stand on my 05 has stopped working, no oil leak and the fuses are good. I push the button and the light flashes at 60htz. Could this be as simple as swapping out the motor or is it more likely that this is just the tip of a very involved repair ??

Re: Another EHCS issues / question

Sounds like a motor to me. Before you go buy one, pull yours off the unit. Then open it up (2 Phillips screws), but use a vise to gently hold the output gear as you pull the case off. That way you will not have to mess with resetting the brushes. There is a plastic base with two screws and the screw that grounds one of the brushes may be corroded. A quick cleanup often restores operation. I don't have a picture but will post one tonight when I get home.
