Thanks for the information David. This machine has safety interlock switches and wiring such as Seat, safety bar, and door switch if equipped. If any of these sensors/switches and wiring are faulty the brakes will not release and the functions will be disabled. Check all your fuses and relays. Check the seat switch and wiring for damaged and loose/damaged connections. i do not have the service book for this exact model but I do for the 2056 which will help. Click on this link and goto PDF page 186 on for your wiring diagrams to help. Let me know

I would move the wiring harness around most of the time brake would release, but now it
Takes longer to have brake release on moving the harness around. It's like the connectors in the harness aren't completing the circuit.

thanks for the update. Unplug the harness connector pins and take a close look for damage and corrosion in the harness and connector pins. You have a loose connection in the harness.

Clean, inspect and install dielectric grease. Repair any damaged wires or connectors. Let me know
