Thanks, Ben! Man, it has been an adventure getting that ghetto version drivable for tomorrow. I got shocked for the first time. Don't tell my wife, she's right next to me, but isn't looking at what I'm typing. Must act casual...

The momentary on pre-charge switch had failed ON during that last little pre-charge resistor mishap. So, when I hooked up the leads to B+ and B-, they were secretly charging, because the switch was ON (EVEN THOUGH IT WASN'T "ON"). So I touched B- and M- at the same time, and it hurt.

There is something wrong with the overcurrent shutdown on the old control board. I just have to stay under the limit! or else the control;ler gets turned off and stays off.
