Re: Motor Shield only puts out 2-3 volts
Thanks for replying,
The motor is just a hobby DC Motor from an old RC Car. I'm just using it for tests, I don't know anything about it but I know that I have got it to run from 5 volts to 12 volts. It doesn't move at all on the motor shield.
I've tried using it without an external supply, and with a 9 volt battery. It doesn't work either way. The motor will run when hooked up directly to the 9 volt.
The 3v is measured without the motor on.
The shield is supposed to be a pre-built adafruit motor shield, all the specs should be the same as the adafruit kit.
Thanks for your help,
