Vex ime not working

First of all, my team has tried redoing all of the wires in different fashions and have tried the VEX Sample IME Code. No Luck.

We have found that the 3rd motor in the daisychain does not respond and gives a solid orange light. No matter what orientation of wires.

Also, one of the IMEs gives a value of either 1, 0, or -1.

The IMEs are on 393 motors.

Thank you,
Team 20Y


To better diagnose your problem, we could use some additional information. Which compiler are you using; ROBOTC, Flowol, or easyC? How many cables do you have between the Cortex and the first Encoder, between the first Encoder and the second, and between the second and third?

For the IME that is only outputting a -1, 0, or +1, please take the module off and look at the black/white wheel. Is this damaged? If there is a circle cut into it, then the module was overtightened and this wheel needs to be replaced. There are directions here on how to replace a damaged encoder gear.
