Customer Question
I have a Skyjack...

I have a Skyjack that has been sitting for about a year. i replaced the batteries, and it fired right up, but when i press the turn buttons, the left one works, and the right one does not. when i first started it up, neither button worked, but then the left one started to work. The right one still does not.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It is a Skyjack 4226, made in 1998

Swap the wires on the steer switches, and see if it is bad switch or wiring problem. The switches have to open solenoid valve on the hydraulic manifold for it to steer, The one solenoid works, the other is not, either switch, wire, or solenoid coil is fault.

dont want to sound stupid - is the drive manifold in the "control box" - (where the joystick is) - or down in the big swing out box that has the hydraulics - wiring - etc.?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 months ago

With the hydraulics, in the lower section.
