Hello! Let's see if we can can work together to get to the root of your question!

Hydraulic pump motor contactor is not closing. If you manually close the contactor will pump motor run? The contactor may not have enough voltage to close it. What is battery voltage and what voltage is getting to the contacttor coil? If it gets full battery voltage and does not close, contactor needs to be repaired or replaced.
