What can cause the ATV71 to run on power up with Logic input switch is turned off?

Issue:
Drive was not told to run but runs on power up.

Product Line:
Altivar 71, Altivar 61

Environment:
All models and serial numbers

Cause:
Internal short

Resolution:
Drive state is RUN   Drive is in terminal control.  Logic input map shows LI1 is enabled.  0 volts is measured between COM and LI1  This logic input appears to be shorted internally.  You will need to remove the Logic input temrinal POD to trip the drive on a PRA condition.  Now you can go into Menu 1.5 IO and change RRS reverse to LI2.  Move the wiring from LI1 to LI2.  Swap two motor wires on the load side of the drive.   Check Logic input map.
