It could be the large high amperage electro magnetic switch on the motor...sorry I left that out by mistake

It is probably not the motor and is either the joystick or one of the 4 relays.
Eliminate the joystick first.
It is unlikely that your relays are numbered because out of about 10 54s, I have only seen 1 with numbered relays, but they are all the same relay. If all 54s are wired the same, I think it will be relay #2, but, if you have a spare relay, it is easy enough to replace them one at a time until you find the culprit. Of course the problem can be corrosion between the relay terminals and the female spade connectors.
If I owned a 54, I would have 4 spare relays.
