I didn’t want to hijack the other thread so I’m making this one.
I had everything set up and running last night. Went out for 2 test rides and both went well. After the second test ride I wanted to adjust the sensitivity of the nunchuck stick for smoother acceleration. I loaded up bldc tool and was browsing around the tabs and realized that in App Config/PPM tab, Control mode was checkmarked Current instead of Disabled. I had it set for the Nunchuck so I disabled PPM and rebooted. When it turned back on, the motor spun up by itself for a few seconds and stopped. After that, the motor would not respond to the nunchuck input. I went to the nunchuck tab and can watch the Display move when I move the stick so the vesc is seeing my inputs but nothing is happening. Next I went to the Realtime Data tab and saw the Fault drv8302 when I would hit any button on the nunchuck.
I just loaded up the latest firmware to see if would be fixed but I am still getting the same drv8302 fault and Detection fails every time now. The motor isn’t moving at all.
At this point, it seems I have a dead drv8302 chip. Any ideas?
