Hi Alvin,

I Didn't get as much accomplished as I wanted today. I was trying to find an old used laptop.

Stopped in one local computer shop and asked the guy if he had one with an RS232 port on it. His response was "I don't know what that is". Oh boy !

Anyway, I had not tried the controller and motor together with a 12 volt traction pack but I did today. Still no throttle response.

The motor spins with a 12 volt battery connected directly to it.

The good news is I have an open ( not shorted) between B- and M-. I do read 40 meg ohms briefly before it reads open between B+ and M-.

I have it back in the house and will connect it to my desktop again tomorrow and play with com ports again to see if I can get some communication going. Getting ready to head out for the evening.

Thanks for your help.
