Nothing I have tried so for has made the motor turn. No error messages on startup except the one that says its not really an error. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might have missed??

Check out @jackbauer's post here

If the vector output is not being called, there should be no output.

Besides that, a while ago you needed to have your throttle between min-regen and min-throttle (I didn't look up the actual variable names - sorry). Not sure if that is a requirement any more.

I can look tonight and find a config that worked OK for my motor. It won't likely work well for yours, but it should output *SOMETHING*

My bet is on the vector output still commented out. Do you have MPLab X installed so you can compile? If not, perhaps send @MPaulholmes or @Jackbauer a PM. They can send you a new file to load into your controller.

I've never gotten this darned compiler to spit out an actual file without errors .. so I can't help with that.

PS - I'm running a rev 2 board and I think you are all at rev 3 or 4
In THEORY there is no difference between Theory and Practice
