Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Inspect the step track and linkage to see if it is rusty or corroded or bent at all or any debris in it.If anything is seen as an issue try and remove any debris and clean and lubricate it with a grease.If this appears to all be o.k. with no bent steps or linkage and it does vibrate and move somewhat this sounds like the step motor is weak itself needing replaced.

I have seen the step motors become weak in the past and causes this type of fault here needing replaced to resolve this issue unfortunately.Due to the year of this model this may be the cause with it needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
