    went to go somewhere the other day, to find that my E-68 will not raise. also will not go left or right, not dure about down. the monitor button on the controller is illuminated red. not really sure what to do considering i cant take it anywhere to be serviced. any help would be appreciated. if there is a way to get it up temporarily so i can take it somewhere to be serviced that would also be good. unfortunately, the mount/dismount button is also not working.

    1st time out mine did the same thing.check the ground wire on the starter solenoid it has a small diode on it. make sure it has a good connection.the solid red on controller means starter solenoid.

    you were correct. it was a stupid screw from that crossbar over the battery that wasnt tightened all the way down. thanks a bunch man.

    Glad that was the problem! It took me forever to figure out the problem when it happened to me.

    If it wasn't for Plow Site, some so-called repair shop might have talked you into a new pump or something.
