Exclamation Talon SR not working

Our Talon SR motor controllers from the 2015 KOP are not functioning properly. Everything is wired and programmed correctly. When I enable them, they have no change in the indicator light. It flashes an orange light just like the other motor controllers, but when I enable it the Talon SRXs quit blinking, but the Talon SRs keep blinking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Talon SR not working

Make sure the pwm wires aren't plugged in backwards. The side with a small B in the plastic should have the black/brown wire. That wire should correspond to the ground connection on the Rio.

Are you sure that it's programmed correctly... make sure that you have the correct port in software.

Re: Talon SR not working

I had the PWM Cables plugged in backwards. I had the white part of the cable to the B end. I reversed it to where the black end was plugged in to B.
