Help- guys with AMP steps.

Well what I worried about when I put the steps on finally happened. I was driving on the ranch after it snowed the other day, and had to drive through some mud. I went and sprayed the steps off as well as under the truck.
Well now the steps won't go all the way up, and act as if there is something in the way. There is no mud left, and nothing that I can see causing an obstruction.
Has anyone had this problem? If so, what can I do to fix the steps?

Or me lol. Is it both steps or just one? If its just one, then I could be a small rock or something in the gears. If its both, then could be an electrical issue. Maybe let it dry out and could fix itself.

Yes it's both steps. I'm hoping its nothing to big. I really don't want to have to go through them to fix them.

Sounds like they lost track of their position on the controller. Maybe disconnect power to the controller and reconnect.

I've run mine through some snow and mud recently and a lot of rain, no issues.

Yeah that did it. I have taken them through mud and anything imaginable already so I was really confused when they decided not to work this time. Thanks for the help.

Check all the wires where they plug into the controller. My passenger side would work one time and not the next. There was a loose wire in the plug at the controller

Glad to hear there are still simple fixes to problems. I never seem to get those kind of problems but it's good to hear they do exist
