Hi my name is***** will be glad to help if you still need help.

32-40 either the Lift or the Tilt Pedal or Handle is not in neutral. Check the pedal and joystick as well as the wiring for problems. If okay try re-calibration and see if the problem resolves. Let me know.

Thanks for the update. Try recalibration after thoroughly inspecting the wiring harness for damage and if the problem persists then try swapping actuators ans recalibrate to see if the problem moves or reveals a faulty actuator. 32-34 is Lift/Tilt valve not calibrated. Let me know
