Do the brake light and seatbelt lights go off? And as you know the cab can affect it, if it is not seated, And if you have a door, it has a switch on it that has to make.

I have never used seat belt

Is there not a light that shows if brake is released and seat belt are not closed?

how do I correct the situation

I would guess the brake does not release, and keeps unit from driving and the same circuit locks the hydraulics! Check the brake solenoid to see if it is getting battery voltage when you release the brake switch,
