Yale MPB040ABC2748:
NO forward travel when requested

The solenoid is activating, but I have no forward travel. reverse works fine. also the horn doesn't work (switch). I can hear and feel the forward solenoid activating for both low and high speed.

These Units use White-Rodgers Solenoids, Power goes thru both in forward and reverse. Normal close side on one and activated side of the other. you can not see burnt contacts inside. If it work in in one direction and not the other and you can hear or feel the solenoid close or activate, the one of them is most likely bad. directional problems tell me motor is good. bad contacts inside of the solenoid. Very Common problem.

get a multimeter and check your circuits
you cant correctly diagnose a solenoid or a switch by touch or feel or listening to it

You've been swooped!
That should be 3 speeds. The 2 big solenoids are F and R, and the little ones are 2nd and 3rd speed, and lift pump. Just because you can hear and feel the solenoid activating doesn't mean it's working, if you are talking about the large F solenoid. If it doesn't click, then I would check to see if it's getting power when you twist the handle. If not, then check the switch in the control handle. If you listen carefully, with the key off, you can hear the little switches click. Should be 3 clicks going forward and 3 in reverse.

Fact of the week
Belgian bar owners complain that tens of thousands of their stylish beer glasses are stolen by souvenir hunters every year. One popular bar requires patrons to hand over one of their shoes as a deposit. The shoe is put in a basket and hung from the ceiling until the glass is returned after the beer is consumed.
