Here is another photo of my connections:

I removed the power switch from the equation and connected both cable together.
The black/red cable with yellow tape registers 37volts when I measure with my voltmeter.
The charger cable is connected directly to the controller.
The battery cable is connected directly to the controller.
The throttle is also connected directly to the controller.
Still, I'm not able to get any movement of the motor when I pull the throttle.
I have tested the motor with my previous throttle which would constantly spin when the green cable was connected.
I think I will order a new controller and start over.
I ordered the white and copper connectors and also a crimper tool. The problem I had was that I could not figure out how to crimp the copper pieces to the end of the wire.
This is the tool I ordered down at the bottom of this page:

That's why I ended using the blue connectors you see in my photo. The tool did not come with any instructions on how to crimp and I wasted about 6 copper pieces trying to crimp the right way unsucessfully.
Would someone please recommend to me a reliable controller that will work for a 36v 500w configuration? I just want one that works.
