I checked this a while ago: when holding the button and pushing the stick to the forward detent I get a red steady light, indicating it is in gear.

I think all that's needed is to swap the yellow and blue wires on pins 5 and 7. That will swap which stick direction is forward and which is reverse so that the warm-up mode works correctly. But then you also need to swap the gear shifting so you get the correct gear direction. With electric shift solenoids it would just be swapping the cables to the solenoids. For a servo cable shift the manual says you need to change Function Code C5.

You really just need the manual. It's very good - all 276 pages of it. This situation is specifically addressed in the trouble shooting section.
I installed the control to operate i with the right hand... but never found any sticker or warning in the packaging nor manual indicating a need of changing some connections. My manual is quite crappy as it has (max) 50 pages.... but as I "inherited" this piece of equipment from a previous owner he may have kept / lost the good one.

I suggest you email Mathers so they can walk you through it.

I believe all you have to do is reverse a couple of wires.
Thank you a lot for Having called these guys! I will change the wiring as suggested in another post, and contact Mathers if it does not work.

The previous owner actually bought the control at the local distributor... But I prefer to avoid contacting them cause their prices are extremely high

On my 9000 you have to push and hold down the button for a minimum of about 7 seconds before moving the lever, you then get throttle only and a blinking light. If you hold it down for less, maybe 5 seconds, you end up with normal function and a solid light.
I've talked to the people at Mathers, friendly and helpful.

To be honest, I pressed and held the button for "some" seconds. Tomorrow I will pay more attention in order to do it for 7 seconds, as you say... and let you know!
Thanks!

It doesn't matter how long you hold down the button if the wirings is wrong.

You are soooo right! Never the less, before checking the wires I will do the 7 seconds test
