Dual Motor Setup not working via CAN Bus (solved)

Hello to you out there.

We have purchased the Platinum version, so we are up to date.

Atm we got 48V 14 cells battery, 2 single VESC HW 4.12 FW 4.2.

Motors are 2 BLDCs and they are controlled by ADC throttle.

We setup the master and slave as the following short instruction:

Master:

Slave:

The only difference is in the newest version 2.03 the definition of "Send status over CAN".

Here we have "Can Status Message Mode" set to "CAN_STATUS_1"

 

PROBLEM:

Only one motor is working (master controller)

It seems there is no connection between the VESCs. CAN-BUS Cable has CAL and CAH connected (2 and 3)

Please someone help us out, we are going crazy with time...:-)...

 

 

EDIT:

 

PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED

The CAN BUS cable we had ordered has Cable 2 and 3 switched, what a F........who could have thought about that....
