Using VEX IQ (2nd generation)? See this article.
The Driver Control Program is a default program built into the VEX IQ Robot Brain so it can be used with Smart Motors, Bumper Switches, and the VEX IQ Controller without programming. The Driver Control Program maps the Controller’s joysticks and buttons to control specific Smart Ports on the Brain.
Step 1: Check that the Smart Ports are properly wired.

|7||Smart Motor||Turns using Joystick A|
|8||Bumper Switch||Stops L Down button from turning Smart Motor in Port 10|
