Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. First check all your safety switches and harness for your arm rests/seat belt, seat switch and door switch if equipped. If any of these switches fail or the wiring has a problem, the parking brake and hydraulic functions will be locked out. Test all your fuses and relays as well. Let me know

Another thing to check if the electrical checks out okay is for a possible pump drive failure between the engine and hydraulic pumps causing a loss of pump drive. If okay, also check inside the hydraulic filter for fine metal indicating a pump or component failure occurring. If clean then your problem is likely in your safety interlock circuit.
