It's a 2008 262c I'm not sure where serial number located machine is pretty beat up. I tried looking at door sensor, hydraulic filter sensor, checked fuses, re connecting battery etc still has Amber ! Light flashing

Where is the amber ! at on the display?

Is there and codes that pop up on the digital display?

Also make sure your hydraulic interlock switch is not flipped it is in the left hand overhead panel that will disable you hydraulic functions.
