Hi Richard
L is a hydraulic fault and 221 is a faulty tilt pot,
If you check the pot you may find the plug has got a poor connection in it(dependant on the year)the earlier models had a non waterproof plug and can get moisture [url removed] unplug it and give it a good clean with electric cleaner.

You can not get the early type pots they are no longer available if you order a new one it comes as a kit to convert.

If the plug checks out then check the wiring if all seems ok and the linkages are not worn then you may need a new pot,but you may need a laptop to set it up.
Hope this helps

Also check joy stick,if you have dual joy sticks, then just swap at plug to see if code comes up when tilting. hook up lap top and recalibrate first

I have rebuilt the tilt angle sensor. The two gears wear out. Need a laptop to calibrate. This starts happening at about 9000 hours when the tilt angle sensor starts showing this code. Sometimes it can be recalibrated and this solves the problem. check plug for broken wire

Get codes cleared and start over. Also seat switch could be bad. 232 might be brake switch and neutral safety switch which is under floor board on left side at brake valve. Might try getting switches calibrated.
