Can you upload a picture or short video of what you are trying to do? Maybe push down on the wheel while working the lever. Here is what the manual says about steering wheel adjustments.
Pinpoint Test C: The Adjustable Steering Column Operates in One Second Intervals When Using the Steering Column Control Switch (Jog Mode)
Refer to Wiring Diagrams Set 128, Adjustable Steering Column for schematic and connector information See: Vehicle > Electrical.
The SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) monitors the position of the adjustable steering column using of Hall-effect type rotation sensors that are integral to the tilt and telescoping motors. The adjustable steering column tilt motor is serviced separately from the steering column. The adjustable steering column telescope motor is not serviceable. If a new adjustable steering column telescope motor sensor is needed, install a new steering column assembly.
The SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) sends a reference voltage along the sensor feed circuit through the Hall-effect sensor and back to the SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) through a shared signal return circuit. The sensors provide a digital signal used by the SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) to calculate the position of the steering column in relation to the full forward/rearward and full up/down positions. The SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) uses this signal to store and recall memory positions, to carry out the easy entry/exit operations and to make sure the adjustable steering column tilt and telescope motors do not stall against the steering column end of travel.
If an adjustable steering column tilt or telescope motor sensor DTC sets (or if either of the sensor circuits become open), the SCCM (Steering Column Control Module) does not recall a programmed memory position or automatically position the steering column during the easy entry/exit operations. The affected steering column motor operates in jog mode. Jog mode allows limited operation of the affected steering column motor using only the steering column control switch. When the steering column control switch is operated in jog mode, the steering column moves in the desired direction for one second, then stops regardless of the length of time the switch is actually activated. The steering column control switch must be released, then activated again in order to move the steering column for an additional second.
Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
