Is the parking brake switch working?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'm not sure it has one.
I am pretty sure the park brake switch has no relevance whatsoever to the transmission.
It previously could be in gear with park brake on.
As a matter of fact, the park brake no longer works well because operators have driven it with the park brake engaged.
This machine has mechanical cable linkage to the transmission. No wires. No computers.

I just figured it out. Clutch dump valve was half way in between on and off. Put it in either on or off and transmission works fine. Thanks for trying to help me!
