Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

I would run temporary wiring from the module to the motor to be sure there is no issue with that.

if the problem persists I would swap in a used module

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle...
