Cortex & Motor Problems

I have been having trouble with running motors with my used codes. I noticed after I saved one of my codes onto my then working robot, my motors wouldn’t function when when I pushed a lever on my controller. The cortex and controller were connected and the controllers were functioning. I know this because I used my controllers on my friend’s to test them. I recently made a new code to troubleshoot after updated my firmware for the cortex and joystick with file CORTEX_V4_25.BIN, and JOY_V425.BIN, but my attempts to find a way to make my motors move failed. Could someone try to give me something I could try to do?
