    Got this Genie TMZ 34-19 lift two years ago used, installed all new limit switches, ground control box adheasive control buttons. started stopping during use, turn switch on and off about every twenty times lift starts to work for a little bit. Thought I had a short in the cpu board, installed new one still not working. What happens now is that the lights all come on, the horn works on top and bottom controls, the kill switches work on both controls ,the only buttons i can get anything from is when the key is in the basket position, my right and left rotation buttons start the pump but are not releasing the coils on the hydraulics. I was hoping someone might have had the same problem in the past and had some advice on which direction to go.... Thanks T3401-161

    Just an update. I found that the bypass on the hydraulics when I had pushed it to manually drop the boom stuck in the open position, took apart and freed up the spring. now pump works but still the only control I get for the lift is the basket left right turntable,

    The solution was a bottom touch pad control....Just changed that less than 6 months ago didn"t think that was the cause... with these lift seems like if they don"t do anything one or more of the buttons are stuck.
