entry step repair 2006 Monaco diplomat

Just purchased 2006 Monaco Diplomat. bought 9/26 and drove home 800 miles to Michigan. Step started to work intermittently. Thought I would never get it back in at last rest area. It does nothing when closing door. It is stuck out. If I turn ignition on it makes noise 2-3 times. I feel like it might be coming from motor assembly but not sure if the module could be the problem. It did work one time today but not getting it closed again. the tag on the module has no visible markings they are wore off.

Plastic gears inside motor are stripped. They are windshield wiper motors if you can cross reference or buy one on Amazon. A pretty simple repair. If steps get stuck out crawl under and pull pin. You will have to tie them back.

There is a contact type sensor in the door, it's a safety that sends a signal to the steps to close when the door closes.

Make sure it's OK, sometimes you can clean the contacts and it fixes the problem.
