Hello, have you taken any pressure readings? Is the brake pedal rusted or sticking at all. Make sure its pulled all the way back to disengage the inching feature. IS this problem an intermittent issue or steady? Has the column shifter been replaced ? I will grab a manual on the machine when i get to work to assist further this evening. Thanks.

Hi Does your dash look like this? You said it works fine in third the info i have shows only 1st and 2nd gear. Can you confirm please

I'm still wondering on the inching function since it will keep the machine in low speed if not working properly. So look at the master cylinder for a pressure switch one for brake lights and one is inching. Jump out or disconnect switch to see if it makes a difference.

Hi and thanks, ***** ***** but the book i'm using and the ones I've come across are like the pic showed. How about going to the plug and verifying that power is being sent to different wires when changing the shifter control. I would also suspect this unit will be using solenoids for the shifting so I would ohm those as well to see if one is out of range compared to the others.

Ok Dan,I will try those things.Thanks for all the help.
