Crown RC3000:
Requesting tilt down but forks lowering instead

Tilt up working as it should. When requesting tilt down, the forks lower also, it's doing both at once. I've studied the hydraulic and electrical diagrams I just don't understand. The tilt and steering operate off the low pressure pump. the lower and raise operate off the high pressure pump. Any ideas I appreciate.

After trying to make sense of the lockout box I thought my problem was it but turns out the BDI controller was wired up incorrectly. It provides a ground for the lift circuit, and contactor. I was losing lift up intermittently, and tilt down was lowering forks also.... forklift was running around operating just fine with it wired incorrectly , that will remain a mystery.

Maybe this will help someone in the future.

All the wiring inside the handle looks good.

Fact of the week
In the 1840's Valentine Day cards were popular. But a new trend developed where cynical, sarcastic, often mean-spirited cards were produced to be sent to people you disliked. 'Vinegar valentines' were postcards decorated with a mocking caricature and insulting poem. The unflattering cards reportedly created a stir throughout all social levels.
