Welcome to the forums.

Have you checked the factory service manual for fault diagnosis yet? Any issues before you lost the use of shifting? Been in deep water/mud?

Only issue was overdue oil change no mud or water always in garage used very little
Changed oil according to owners manual and reset display
Tried different 30a shift motor fuse and it worked for a few shifts then quit again back to the few quick blinks then four definite blinks for whatever gear it's in!

time to remove the shifting motor cover at front of engine, and inspect the gears under it. DO NOT PULL THE SHIFT MOTOR APART !!!.

Will the gears shift manually using the shift tool?? If yes, then you need to check the gearshift switch wiring. If no, it may be a problem with the linkage. The manual will take you step-by-step how and what to check.

Hi: Count the quick blinks and the slow blinks -- that is the error code to find the problem

Thanks everyone for now
Just busy in the hay field, got a drought going on here in central Manitoba, Canada and trying to find some feed
Battery is original and tests at 12.56V
Manual shift lever works fine

Here is the direct link. There is not a 2013 manual but the 2014 will work for you.

If you have a PDF program you should be able to download and open the file. If not, first install a PDF program, then download the manual.

Hi: That is code 24

Look In section 14 -- page 14-29 of the service manual
