Hello, I have a 1990 Blue Bird Wanderlodge. Wont start. Has a flashing red light on the touch pad saying "don't shift".

The vehicle had the key in the on position and the touch pad was pushed into first gear. Thereafter I shifted it back to neutral on the touch pad but it won't start though it does say neutral. Is there a way to clear the condition? I tried disconnecting the battery but the condition did not disappear.

I am new to the Allison powered rig and do not know where to start.

Are the batteries fully charged. The Allison won't let the engine start if it doesn't know it is in neutral
