I now have the ezb v3 connected via bluetooth. Now , I made my Movement Panel and setup for D14-D11. I hooked the red and black cable to the voltage from ex power.
I powered up and tried to use the Movement Panel and nothing worked as far as the movement panel. I have power and four wires. How should I handle this problem?

I was wondering. Does the Movement Panel motors have to be on ports D0-D3?
I have them on ports D14-D11. Is this my error?
I have power now. But, The directions are all screwed up.
LTA = 13
LTB = 12
RTB = 10
When I hit forward, it goes forward with a slight tilt to the left.
When I hit reverse, it goes pretty much reverse.
when I hit right, it goes pretty much right.
when I hit left, it goes Left.
If I have made two threads on a similar subject, I am sorry. One was getting the machine to have some power to the ports. The OTHER was adjusting the ports. I felt like it was a new thread. Anyway, sorry.
I'm not sure what you mean about it "pretty much" go in the expected direction. Could you explain what is happening? It almost sounds like the outside wheels aren't turning properly. You may have swap two more ports in the movement panel.
Sorry, this is just a guess. It's been years since I tried using a movement panel. I haven't built a wheeled robot yet and I script all my motor movements. I do remember that I needed to keep reassigning the ports till I had it right though. *tired*
The robot was working properly before I took it apart. All of the motors where turning properly in the right directions. I have no labels on the wires or from the points I took the wires off of. so it is a guessing game. I have four wire. I know that some go on the Right and some go on the Left. I tried all sorts of settings and the ones I have above worked the best for me. Right now, I am stumped! I can't think of anything I can do to make them work better.
It is very simple to wire. Simply remove the jumpers(little plastic things) on the pins behind the "In" lines(if you have them, mine didn't)
Then take 2 more jumper cables. Attach one to each of the En pins(EnA and EnB), connect the other ends to the signal pins on the ez-b. Done!
Once done that report back and I'll help you with the custom movement panel.
here's what I have so far:
Reverse works =Perfect.
Left turn works=Perfect
Right turn works b\=but with a wide curve using reverse added to it.
Forward works= but with a wide left turn added to it.
I feel I have it halfway there.
Please don't tell me I have to disassemble.
Before I took Sally apart, It was working perfect without any PWM controls. No jumper changes and no extra ports and cables. Why would it change all of a sudden? There are only four wires, but there are SOOOO many combinations that you can put them.
Thank You SSOOOOOOOOooooooo much for your help!
Use this, and modify the speed until the faster motor is the same speed as the other.
I have got to take a quick break. My EZB just went out and got very hot. I may have to graduate to the V4. I am sure that you gave me the right answer, so I am awarding you the credit.
Thanks for your help. I will probably make another thread if I come up with a problem. If no problems then I will post results to this thread.
I am sure that I can use this info obtained. I will start a new thread on the V4. It will be almost from scratch put back together. See you there.
