Unable to spin fan in SimHub prefab sketch

by Baglunch on Wed Jul 29, 2020 7:24 pm

I am currently doing my second attempt at building a wind simulator for use with iRacing. It utilizes an arduino uno, adafruit motor shield, ac adapter, and two cpu fans. I have followed every step precisely, done a good job on the soldering, but in the "shake it motors effect profile," clicking "test" under speed doesn't power the motors at all. Below is a link to the tutorial at the point where they upload the sketch and test the fans. On the motor shield, the power light is green and on. On the uno, the on light is on and green, and the L, TX, and RX lights are on, not flashing, and yellow. Thank you in advance for any help. This has been mindbogglingly frustrating.
