Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, the motor can be tested with the use of a car's 12V battery. If it turns with the battery then it is good. By process of elimination, if the motor and console checks good, then the controller would be the most likely suspect.
