Arable Farmer
we have a cvx 160 with around 7000hrs . when i select forward and let the clutch out it starts changing from forward neutral reverse then back to forward by itself . tractor is obviously surging back and forth whilst it doing this. i was told it could be the stepper motor has anyone expierced this ? i will try to post a video now

When you select forward the tractor should release the park lock and not move until you use the travel pedal.
