i have a CAT skid steer model 232b2. i haven't been able to get the arms to raise up on it. with machine running parking indicator lamp does not come on. when i am pushing the button to release the parking brake, the seat belt indicator light starts flashing. machine will move, but i cannot raise the arms. hydraulics won't engage, but the hydraulic fluid level is good. checked wiring as best as i can, and i see no bare wires. i also have bypassed the seat sensor thinking that would help, with no luck.

I have no specific knowledge, but I would start by checking all of the fuses just to rule out a simple blown or loose fuse as being the cause.

Seat switch, lap bar switch and door switch will all affect the implement lockout solenoid operation. Those are the low hanging fruit for that complaint.
