Is there and codes that pop up on the digital display?

Also make sure your hydraulic interlock switch is not flipped it is in the left hand overhead panel that will disable you hydraulic functions.

on the Left overhead counsil. I don't Have digital display. i tried flipping all switches still nothing. The only thing that works on the right joy stick is the aux to open and close 4 in one bucket.
