Take a trip back to the dealer who installed them and complain.

Yes I replaced them today and when I got home from the dealership to test it out mechanically it did not lift. I could hear the motor going but it wasn't budging. I called them and he told me to bring it back in and he would have it taken care of because i was under the impression from the recall letter that they would also have to update the software. When I brought it back the mechanic claimed he did an update but it must be something to do with the motor
