Hi my name is***** for fault or error codes and post any you might have. Also check the safety interlock switches and wiring for the set, lap bar and door switch if equipped for damage or corrosion. If any of the wiring or switches are not engaged or faulty, your functions will be disabled. If okay check the hydraulic filter for signs of fine metal indicating a hydraulic pump/component mechanical problem. Let me know
