Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. this can be hydraulic, mechanical, or electrical. Check the oil level and condition as well as the filters internally for fine metal/debris indicating a hydraulic failure occurring. If clean check all fuses and relays as well as the wiring and connector pins for damage. Are there any fault or warning indicators displayed?
