I had a somewhat similar issue where the wheel tilted down when exiting the car and also would not tilt up without pressing the switch repeatedly. I thought my steering wheel switch was bad. However, it turns out the steering wheel had just lost its position. I fixed it by tilting the wheel all the way up by repeatedly pushing tilt up until it would no go up any further. Then I held the tilt up switch for 10 seconds. Then the same for tilting back down and it works perfectly now.

There are other threads out there that lead me to this solution. But, I figured I would add it to this one as a simple step to try before tearing into any of the switches.
