Hi all, I’m having issues with what seems to be one side of my Vesc.
I can update the firmware only on the local connection, but every time I try to update the firmware on the other side, it keeps saying “Erasing Buffer Failed.” Also, I’m doing this through Can forwarding because I broke the usb on the other side.
However, both sides have updated firmware at 5.3. So I tried running motor detection and everything seems to go fine, but it always times out.
The board was working just fine. No idea what happened.
Can you tell me how to power cycle the ESCs besides turning them off and unplugging them, which is what I’m doing…
I have been updating individually. That seemed to work better. So I would select the local ESC, update, then choose the other ESC and update again. The local does fine. When I select the other, it gives me the error code.
Disconnect from power completely and wait a bit for all the caps to drain
If you only update one side sometimes that cases issues with it not being able to communicate correctly, although I think that was fixed? I always update both together or individually with CAN disconnected and only had issues with the fsesc dual 6.6 plus
Alright, when I disconnected it, I was able to update the firmware and do a motor detection.
Now, the issue I ran into was that when I try to run the board, wheels aren’tt spinning like it should. It sputters and sounds like its struggling. It spins, but not strongly. And my davega is flashing red and blue saying its an “over current” issue.
I got the bluetooth working and I can upload firmware and run motor detection on each vesc independently by switching to each UART port. However, they dont seem to talk to eachother. When I use my remote, it will only give power to whichever side my remote is connected to. Any suggestions?
