Check Neutral Position Sensor:

  • Inspect the sensor that detects the neutral position of the reverser lever.
  • Ensure the sensor is clean, correctly aligned, and free from damage. Replace if necessary.

Verify Wiring and Connections:

  • Inspect the wiring and connectors related to the reverser lever and neutral position sensor.
  • Ensure all connections are secure and free from corrosion or damage.

Test Sensor Circuitry:
