I called Stromberg Carlson and was told it was either the motor or the Step Control Module. How can I tell if the motor is bad? Do I have to remove it to test it?
Most likly the problem is from the double swivel bolt. Aka (Hein bolt), very poor design. it connects the rotary actuator plate to the steps throwout assembly. The stud where connected to the rotarry plate loosens and allows all the clunking and jerky moves. Two 7/16" wrenches and tighten. If you don't that stud will fail and steps will have no restraint- careful.
