The joystick has t send the voltage to the f/r solenoids. Check for battery voltage at reverse solenoid, then check the forward solenoid for voltage. If you have battery voltage to both solenoids. Solenoid for forward can be bad, swap the solenoids to check if it is bad.

If no voltage to the solenoid, check the wires at the joystick. Has to be bad joystick or wiring from joystick to control valve.
