Can a l298 motor driver suddenly go bad? MY grandsons Rover 5 was working just find and all of a sudden the motors start running as if the batteries are going dead. I put new batteries in and the same thing. But if I hook the motors right to the batteries the motors turn fine. The only thing he was doing was getting rid of the " DELAYS " and was trying to use the " blink with out delay" to run the motors. The arduino board has it's own power supply and the motors are powered by 6 AA batteries.
