Left motor not working

Everything seems ok, but my left motor isn't powering up. I can plug it into any other power port and the motor works fine, (example I plugged it into the rear motor and it runs good). It seem related to the power  distribution module, but it seems to check out ok with a meter but I am only checking for continuity not voltage, I don't really know what to check voltage wise so any Ideas or help would be appreciated.

I know the following;

The motor/esc works in any other location.
Motors from other locations don’t work in the left location

I can connect in the configurator and  it’s the only engine that will not respond to commands.

    Steve, you cannot check outputs with volt meter. To properly check them you should have Oscilloscope to see their real PWM output. Ok you can do some basic testing for them. If nothing else you can always do a small sketch that goes from 0v to 5v every 1 second or what ever and that you can measure with volt meter.

     

    PWM signal is a just small pulse that gives 5v output. Volt meter it too slow to see if it goes "down". Hmm maybe we could create some test pattern for those, let me think ....

    Are you sure that all your outputs are working properly?? Have you been testing any other motors/ESC's on that same output port?
