I have had two different cars do this now -
The two tiny micro-switches on the drive motor get dirty/sticky/hosed up
somehow. I was able to remove them, dis-assemble and clean up and get it all
back together. I can't remember if they are riveted on but if they are, you need
some (SAE) 2-56 machine screws to put them back on. Of course you can use metric
screws too - if you have them, SAE is just available about anywhere.
The switches themselves are - as the name implies - micro. If you can handle the
tiny pieces, this is an easy job.
