Have you tried using the backup mode switch to see if it will release the brake?

Does your two speed travel work?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The bypass switch or the swing lock switch does not bypass itI'm not sure about the high travel but the low speed worksWhen I attempt to swing it auto revs and the lines on the swing motor flex but the swing lock won't disengage
Mechanic: catmastertech, Technician replied 1 year ago

The swing brake solenoid and the travel solenoid are next to each other, is it possible the wires are crossed?
