It is listed in the product description:
To connect to our shield, put the wires in this order: Red, Yellow, skip ground, Green, Brown

I also have the same problem, I purchased Stepper Motor HAT and a stepper motor with wires (Black, Green, Red, Blue) in the specification, it says Black ---- Green, Red --- Blue. Now I don't know where to connect those wires on the board. Please, I need help. Thanks!

BTW, the stepper motor is Nema 17HS16-2004S1.

the stepper motor is Nema 17HS16-2004S1.

That motor is not compatible with the HAT. It has a very low (1.1 ohm) phase resistance - indicating that it is intended for use with a current limiting 'chopper' driver.

We are new to using the stepper motor, since we have this Stepper Motor HAT and the motor, what can you suggest for us to do?
Thank you very much for the help..

The options are to use a different motor, or use a different driver.

This motor works well with the HAT: https://www.adafruit.com/product/324
The DRV8871 is capable of driving the 17HS16-2004S1 motors you currently have. https://learn.adafruit.com/current-limi ... th-drv8871
