Been having some trouble with CAN jaguars during autonomous. Teleop works just fine, but in testing with the jags under CAN we can sometimes get autonomous movement and sometimes we can't.

When the jags don't move, either all of them blink yellow or all grey ones are solid but our black jag bridge is blinking. The moment teleop is enabled they all go to their normal lights.

I think it has something to do with our autonomous not sending constant commands to the jags, while teleop sets on every loop. However, I can't figure out why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I can't think of anything that's changing between when it works and when it doesn't

We use C++, are using the 2nd release of the CANJaguar code from firstforge, and running v89 firmware. Don't have access to the robot or it's code right now

We've seen this issue also and ended up using a timer in a while loop to do Autonomous.
