Hello,

Your joystick has a solenoid under the bottom to turn off the pilot controls.

Maybe you have pinched a wire or pull the connector loose.

If you have an electrical fault, the park light or armrest light will flash.

If so, that requires troubleshooting the interlock ECM circuits.

If one or both lights are flashing or not on at all, let me know and I can help further.

Post the serial number of the unit also.
