Wow a lot of questions where to start? I was not driving these modules directly with the revolt board the revolt board turned on a mosfet then the mosfet turned on the the base of the modules. The resistor to the base was 2.2 ohm with a pull down resistor of 39 ohms went from the base to the emitter to help with switching times. No stupid me there was no fuse in line with the batteries although there should have been. The power stage has four of these modules. There are separate resistors for each module. One of the modules shorted but the other three are still good.
The fact that the hardware overcurrent didn't stop anything was probably because the overcurrent circuit pulls the gate
Shouldn't the overcurrent still work because I was using a mosfet to drive the modules? I will write down all the component you said to check and get back to you this evening.
