Problems with Mars-etek and millipak controller

I have built a push trailer which has a Mars etek brushless motor and uses a sevcon millipak controller all with system voltage at 36.,100ah. On initial test using pin 2 as fwd direction it ran backwards,ie clockwise! SO I used pin 3 also had to use pin 10 and not 11 for the pot..Main problem now is that it will not run under load I.e on the bike it trips out with 9 flashes but on the bench,wheels up, it starts up and runs fine does any one know what pin 4 (FS!?)does and if it needs to be grounded (like the seat switch pin 5)

I don't know millipak . but if the motor has brushes than switch the + and - on the motor and go back to the proper wiring of the controller . if it is a brushless motor revearce any two of the three big wires going to the motor and put the controller back the way it was . LaTeR

thank GOD I wake up above ground !!!!

Yep thats the first thin I tried but the controller knew I'd done it and gave me error flashes so the I resorted to using the reverse pin for fwd and vica versa .Now the only serious problem is that it trips out under load with a 9 flash error
