Call Bennett, they're real helpful, they can help you troubleshoot.

There are two solenoids and a motor. One solenoid for each side, and the motor is reversible for up and down. It's probably just a bad solenoid, or a bad connection. My port side stuck this spring, ran intermittently here and there, sometimes would go one way and not the other, ended up being a pin pulling out of the connector.

Get back there with a multimeter and start testing, you should be able to narrow it down pretty quick and get it fixed up. If you need parts, Bennett will often give you small stuff for free (seals and whatnot), and you can probably pick up a module from earl the pearl.

Bennett was helpful for me. They sent me a seal kit free.

The solenoids and seats are very easy to remove (watch for a spring). If your tab is down, be prepared for a fair amount of fluid when you thread out the solenoid, because if all is well with the actuator, the tab will retract under spring tension.
