Older western vbox electric throttle not working

    Hey guys, I got a older western vbox, everything works great except for the electric throttle, when you activate the switch it only goes one way, goes to fast throttle and won't go to idle, replaced the switch, went through all the wiring(well I think), the actuator works because I swapped the wires around and then it goes to idle and no fast throttle. Any guesses would help.
    Thanks

    If the switch is good, and the actuator is good, then it has to be in the wiring.
    use an ohm meter to see if you have continuity.
