Thanks dab, now for the funny part, we found the issue. Connection RD6 on the main PCB wasn't plugged in. After my helper got done with it I went back over his work to find that connector unplugged (always taught myself to start with the basics and check other peoples work).
even though he assured me everything was hooked up.
We're human and bound to make mistakes, which in his case this is the first time he has forgot to plug everything in so now I get to pick on him for this one!
