Did you ever get this looked at? I am having the same issue with my 08 Tahoe. My passenger side was working on and off, then all of a sudden started working great and my drivers side stopped. It is stuck in the out position. I can hear the motor click on to try and retract it but it doesn't move. I can't hear it try and move when i open the door, so it seems it alreadys knows it is out. When i close the door, it seems to try and retract it twice then i stop hearing the noise.

This is what I did. Last fall my wife had ACL surgury so I opened the doors to get them to drop, then I pulled the fuse. I ran it all winter with them down so I wouldn't have to deal with it. This spring I decided to take another run at it. I put the fuse back in, opened the doors and flooded both hinged joints with WD40 several times. This didn't clear it up right away, but I continued to open and close the doors, re-appling WD40 until they ran smoothly. They have worked fine ever since. It's unfortunate that there are no grease zerks on these. My guess is that I will need to continue to do this as they get sticky.
