Sorry to hear you are having troubles with your Tele handler shifting. First you want to check for power on both sides of all of your fuses replacing any fuse with power only on one side with the ignition switch in the on position. Swap your relays one at a time with a known good one for testing purposes. This will give you an initial health check of the electrical system as well as detect if there are any shorts or problems that could potentially create issues that would cause the symptoms you are experiencing. If all of this checks out good, verify your parking brake switch is working properly to allow the transmission to shift as well as the wiring to the parking brake switch. If this all checks okay, the most common cause on these machines is a worn-out control lever. They are exposed to the elements and from the time that machine starts running to the time it gets shut down, that lever is constantly being used. The contacts inside eventually fail. To confirm this, use a voltage tester to test for power going into your shift control and then for power going out when you select each gear position then to your transmission shift solenoids. This will help determine if there is a loss of power in your first and second-year positions. If for any reason you do have power out going to your shift solenoids but the transmission is not responding, test the resistance values of each of your solenoids as they should all be in range of one another. A solenoid that is out of range of the others, indicates a faulty solenoid. If all this checks good, check your oil level and condition. Look for any signs of metal or debris in your filter and oil that would confirm an internal mechanical failure existing that would require disassembly for further inspection and repair or rebuild of your transmission . If all this is clean ,you will want to have your pressures tested and confirmed whether or not they are within OEM specifications for your model and serial number service book .If you have excessive internal leakage within your transmission or your clutches , the pressure test will show the drop of pressure when selecting those gears. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can .

Thank you. This should help us to locate the problem that is causing the issue. The other issue we are having is the frame tilt is not working. What would cause this to happen?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
That is a completely separate problem with your frame tilt and should be on a separate request to keep different subject matter separated on the website as far as your frame tilt problem.
