Hello, I am sorry I missed you earlier.To access the seat switch you must raise the cab. To do this, remove the two bolts in each front corner of the cab. Use a 15/16" or 24mm socket and go under the bottom edge to remove the nut. The bolts have a lock plate on top and this will hold them while you remove the nut.You may need a pry bar to lift the cab slightly then you can push it up all the way to allow the safety catch to hold it.If you are seeing a flashing light on you dash, you problem may be deeper. Also do forget the check the door switch, if the controls do work correctly, the door switch can cause this without much warning.If you need further help, please post the full machine serial number with your reply.
