5445 eletric 3-point lift super malfunction!

james kent my 5445 has developed eletric problems! the rocker switch in the cab that controls the 3-point hitch works intermintly. also, the 3-point hitch will raise and lower by itself regardless if an implement is on. wednsday it lifted up my spray rig and shattered my rear window! thank god i wasnt in between the sprayer and tractor! i would have been crushed and killed! i havnt been able to get in contact with the local dealer on the issue. i think the mechanic is out sick. i'm going to make sure massey knows of this problem asap, before somone is crippled or worse, killed! any one else ever have these problems? i must add when the lift isnt working, the system warning light flashes. the fender mounted up-down buttons work normally.
bill It is very unlikely for the hitch to operate on its own without input from the operator. It is most likely the position sensor that is faulty. When this sensor fails the hitch is in the locked position and can only be operated by the fender switchs. It maybe the rocker switch, but if the rocker switch doesn't work the hitch will not turn on.
