Can someone please give me some guidance how to troubleshoot this? Did the motor get toasted or the gear get jammed somewhere?
Thanks in advance.
I wouldn't count the motor out yet, if it fires in semi there is no reason it wont fire in auto. Spinning is spinning.
Does it still fire in semi?
Sounds like you could have a jam in the mechbox, causing the motor to try and spin but it cant. When a motor cannot spin, MASSIVE amounts of current is drawn by the motor, this would explain why your wiring was getting hot.
