Hi Felix, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. It is possible that the shift controller or ECU is faulty not allowing shift to take place or you could have an internal mechanical issue causing the transmission to be stuck in Neutral. Check the transmission filter and oil for any signs of discoloration, metal/debris, burnt smell, milkiness indicating water contamination, etc. that would indicate an internal problem occurring. If clean then test all your fuses and relays as well as thoroughly inspect the harness and connector pins for corrosion or damage. If okay the problem is likely in the shift controller itself. Let me know if we need to dig deeper into this

The tractor has been sitting for four years without moving. It moved in to the parking spot.

Just replaced the filters and fluids recently. Have checked the fuses, connector pins no corrosion and are ok

Thanks for the information. Make sure no critters chewed or urinated on any of the wiring or harness. I recently worked on a machine that this happened too. If the batteries were down you could have a software issue with the ECU and a loss of memory. Try having Deere reflash and test the ECU, make sure the battery and charging system check out good and see if the problem still exists. Be sure to clean all battery to starter connections and grounds in case there was some corrosion causing a poor connection.
