Trouble with lift system

Have a 2007 Hilo and am having problems with the top not raising. The fluid was low and I refilled the reservoir. It still won't raise. Would it be the solenoid on the pump motor or what am I looking to do from here. Once I pump it up it will lower by my master switch. Any suggestions. I am lost. Battery fully charged. Checked fuses I could find, is there any hidden fuses I got to look for. Any advice would be extremely appreciated. Ty⁸

When you try to raise the top can you hear the motor running? If you can see if you can see any fluid leaking anywhere you may have a broken hose

Hi-Lo forum is best place to pose this question. If pump runs when switch is pressed to raise and will not lift, you have a leak or stuck relief valve or bad pump or stuck lowering valve or the lift cylinder by passing fluid internally at the cylinder piston seals. Hi-Lo uses a very basic hydraulic circuit. Lots of or's, but easy to check each one.

I am a former Hi-Lo owner and hydraulic engineer.
