Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Most likely the problem is going to be on the control side of the circuit. Thoroughly inspect the wiring harness for chafed, damaged, loose, or shorted wiring and connections. For some reason reverse is being powered up when it should not be. Look at the harness on the back of the controls panel as well to see if there are any shorted wiring or switches. Test the continuity of the switches as well. Let me know.
