First check for fault codes holding the light switch to see if any Falco's will display in the hour meter window but if you have the digital display panel that displays codes please let me know if you have any fault codes logged. If no codes check inside the old hydraulic filter to see if there's any signs of fine metal or debris that would indicate a component problem occurring. If lift and tilt and travel along with all other functions work except for the axillary 4 in 1 functions then check all your fuses and relays and let me know the results and if we have to dig deeper into this. Please remember to take a moment to read my answers has that as hell that say credits my time for helping on the site. Five-star ratings and bonuses are always greatly appreciated
