M1 fault when testing Pololu 5019 with Ardunino UNO without motors

Hi! I just got my Pololu 5019 motor driver today.
I am testing the demo code without any modifications. However I get the error "M1 Fault"
What could be the cause of this error? Will it go away if I test the driver with actual motors?

I need to show my project in 2 days, urgent help needed.

The motor indicator LEDs are also not turning on.
What could be the possible issue?

The problem has been resolved!!!
If anyone is facing this issue PLEASE CHECK YOUR SOLDER CONNECTIONS. Thanks.


I am glad you figured out what the issue was; thank you for letting us know.
