2 common problems are throttle pedal not returning to neutral before changing directions, and micro switches by gear shift levereither stuck open/closed.Check micro switches using ohm meter to make sure they are opening and closing, if one is bad you won't get any direction.Check micro switches with battery disconnected while moving gear shift lever, all it takes is one not opening or closing, make sure to mark wiring before disconnecting so wires do not get mixed up some are wired N/O and some are N/CCheck throttle pedal sweep with meter.I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!
