Alright so I have a big issue:
I bought a replacement VESC from tourque boards after my other one broke. And I received it a couple days ago. However, when i plugged it in to my BLDC Tool it says “The firmware on the connected VESC is too old. Please update it using a programmer.” So i asked the support guys for help and they told me to download the VESC Tool software. So I did so and updated the firmware following the instructions:
So I opened up the BLDC Tool and tried connecting it again and it still said the firmware was too old. So i tried it again to see if I did something wrong the first time, but it failed again . Then I realized I could configure it using the VESC Tool. So I ran some detections and tried configuring the VESC and nothing happened. The resistance is like 25,000 ohms which is way too high. And the fault reads FAULT_CODE_DRV. Also, when I try pulling the trigger on the controlling, nothing happens either.
Now im starting to think that it is a faulty VESC and I should replace it, or if it really is a firmware issue.
I will leave screenshots of the VESC terminal and Debug console to show the Faults and the failed detections if that’ll help at all.
