Brute force 4x4 problems

I've got a 2006 brute force 750. My 2wd/4wd light is flashing on the dash in the intervals indicating the KEBC is the issue. The KEBC does not make the noise that my buddy's does when you shut the bike off so I know it's not working. I put a test light in the connector while it was running and there's no power getting to the unit. I'm still trying to fix the bike and get it running so I don't know if anything on the front engages I were to switch it to 4wd but I'm assuming it wouldn't. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? Also, I've read ways to wire around the KEBC but do I need power coming through the wires to do this?

I've changed and dilectric greased the fuses already.

There are 5 wires going to the KEBC actuator from the small black box/Controller as following:

Red - (+) 12V to power the dc motor.

Black - (-) ground to the dc motor.

Orange - (+) 5V signal going into potentiometer of the KEBC.

Yellow - (+) 0-5V signal coming out of potentiomeer from KEBC.

Blue - (-) Ground.

Controller box might not be sending out any voltage out.

And if KEBC is not working, then Controller shuts down 4x4 engagement function also.

If you want to remove the KEBC completely, Woodbutcher has a thread in the How To's
