Most likely the plastic gear for the tilt has gone out. No way to buy and replace it unless you replace the whole steering column with either a new or used one. A new one is close to 2k. You may be able to buy a used one for a couple hundred. Mine is the same way. I just took the cover off and manually adjusted it to as low as it would go and am leaving it there. Just turn the auto off.
