Controller help

I currently am working on a benchtop test however the vic and jag are not getting a siginal from the sidecar. the three led’s are lit up on the sidecar. any ideas?
Thanks

Might I suggest http://forums.usfirst.org/forumdisplay.php?f=743, also known as the Beta Test forum? I would guess that someone has found this before and asked about it.

thanks for your help, i figured it out with the help of a mentor, was in a bind and wanted some quick advice…:ahh: :ahh: :ahh: :ahh:

Can you explain what you did? Our team is having the same problems.

I was plugging the PWM cables into the wrong side of the sidecar. They are supposed to go on the side with the white pieces of plastic separating them from each other. Make sure that it is plugged into the three prong part and i believe white facing out? Try both ways though. Sorry this isnt more specific im horrible at technical terms unless its sitting in front of me. Let me know if you need more help

Make sure you don’t plug the PWM’s in backwards, as you may damage something. Remember, GND is black.

According to the Component Datasheet (http://www.usfirst.org/uploadedFiles/3-FRC%20Control%20System-Component-Datasheets-Rev-0-5a.pdf), the black should face the outside of the sidecar.

ok, we will try this Tuesday when we meet. I know we did plug them into the connectors under the blue tab. Thank you.

Thats exactly what i did first. Should work for you now!!!

Thank you, this worked.
