Thanks for the info. Click on the link below and see PDF pages 50-59. It will help identify the ports on the drive motors and what the matching port should be on the pump. There are other diagrams in the publication as well. Let me know. Troubleshooting

The C models are run by one main ECM. If your machine does not have the digital display as shown in the publication I sent you will have yo have Cat ET connected to access the fault codes. If you do have the display then follow the procedure and let me know what you have for codes. This will tell us what the warning light it on for or what circuit there is a problem.
