    Ok i am not sure whats up.. at first i wired up one.. seemed fine, but now after i wired up all three
    when i turn it on and try to move the steppers.. they Hold strong, but dont move.

    DQ542ma are being powered from one set of 12GA wires. and then split into three (one for each driver)
    every thing is mounted to a wood board.. could this be a grounding issue.

    Red light shows on DQ542MAs

    error code says
    Motor doesn’t run, but maintains holding torque
    Without input pulse signal
    Adjust PMW & signal level

    on DuetWifi firmware i have the driver configured like this
    M569 P5 S1 T5:5:5:0

    for pulse timings

    disconnect "enable" maybe?
    Assuming the rest is connected correct.
    I think you need to power that breakout board with 5vdc? Or check that there is already 5Vdc on the small side headers..
