Battery connection lost, maybe loose connections or bad connection. Electric forklift or propane? Make and model.

It's propane and I even tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and it did nothing. I'll send a pic with info.

Will the forklift start? If not, what is the battery voltage?

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's starts. But when you try to go in forward the N will flash and same in reverse. And when you grab the control to move the forks they don't do anything either. The icon that appears is a battery with a line through it.

Has to have some fuses, are the fuses good?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
From what I can see they look good.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you test them with a meter? Is the charging system working?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not with a meter. I just pulled all the minis and they're not blown.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you have battery voltage on both sides of the fuses? you can test them without removing them, by probing the two openings on the back sid. Is the charging system charging the battery?

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
there's voltage on both sides and yes the battery is charging.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

What was the problem?

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
One of the wires under the seat went bad. So I had to use n connect the other 2 extra wires to get it to see that the switch was engaged so it would start running again.
